I am a PhD candidate in Philosophy at University of Cincinnati, where I recently completed my MA in Mental Health Counseling. My research is on the concept of “mental disorder” and the aims of the mental health community. Broadly, I am interested in Philosophy of Mental Health, Philosophy of Psychology, Philosophy of Science, Ancient Greek Philosophy, and psychotherapy.

I grew up in Pittsburgh where I received my BA in Philosophy and Psychology from Duquesne University. After Duquesne, I worked at a mental health group home and then moved to London and received my MA in Philosophy of Psychology from King’s College London. Before starting my PhD, I worked as a care facilitator and research assistant on a behavioral health research study in Baltimore. Feel free to contact me! (they/them)
