I am a psychologist with a special interest in continental philosophy and the ways in which ideas about life and human beings can be used to inform a psychotherapeutic practice. I have a background in Existential-Phenomenology, Psychoanalysis, and Lacanian theory. I continue to publish articles that critique the rational, instrumental, objectivist, and atomistic way of thinking that dominates the field of psychology and to advance alternative ways of conceptualizing who we are and what we need to live more fulfilling lives.
