Welcome to my blog. I am a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology at Duquesne University and a graduate of St. John’s College (see the links to the right). This is where I occasionally post reflections on my work and whatever’s in my personal zeitgeist.
Currently, I’m writing my dissertation full-time (thanks to a grant from Duquesne), practicing psychotherapy and psychological assessment with patients from a forensic population, and preparing for my clinical internship in which I will focus on the psychoanalytic treatment of developmentally disabled adults. Some of my major interests include working psychotherapeutically with people from marginalized/ dehumanized groups, modes of embodied experience and technological extensions and expansions of embodiment/ ongoing critique of the concept of “disembodiment,” and developing a thorough and personal understanding of psychoanalysis.
