I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy from Vanderbilt University in the United States, specializing in nineteenth and twentieth century continental philosophy and feminist theory. I am the author of numerous published articles in continental, feminist and social theory anthologies. I am a philosophical counselor certified by the American Philosophical Practitioners Association. My current research focuses on philosophical practice and philosophical critiques of medical mental health paradigms. I am employed as the Associate Dean of Programs and Professor of Philosophy in the College of Arts and Sciences, Eastern Michigan University.
Many of my writings can be found at academia.edu
As a philosophical counselor, I am only as good as my "canon." By this I mean the body of texts that I spontaneously summon, during philosophical counseling sessions, from my own working library to recommend to someone to read so she may consider alternative viewpoints.
