I was originally introduced to psychoanalytic thought through the books of Erich Fromm, and have since extended my interest into relational theories and approaches to psychodynamic psychotherapy. In addition to working with adults, I enjoy working with children and their families.
Student Representative- APA Division 39 – Section I
My name is Susana Gomez. When psychoanalysis found me, it was like coming home! Among my greatest joys are being a doctoral (Psy.D) student at Antioch University New England, and the privilege of working as a therapist in a clinic in my neighborhood. My psychoanalytic interests and topics of writing include dreams and reverie, disenfranchised grief, Borderlands theory, non-human objects/ selfobjects/ subjects, conditions necessary for indwelling, and psychoanalytic attending as a form of activism. I also love singing, partner dancing (especially Waltz and East Coast Swing), playing the harp, canoeing, fairs, encountering hawks, dreaming up books and poems and musical arrangements, the Connecticut River, being a synesthete, and – strange as it might sound – the most ordinary things in life, such as driving familiar routes to familiar places.

I have nearly completed my practicum placements at Antioch’s PSC and the psychological services center at Williams College. I am currently on my pre-doctoral internship.
Hello! My name is Dana. I am excited to be part of AUNE psychoanalytic studies group. I came to AUNE after receiving a joint degree in Religious Studies and Environmental Studies from McGill University.

I am so grateful for Antioch’s analytic community for expanding my horizons. I am now drawn to relational dynamic theories as well as psychodynamic assessment. Currently, I am at practicum at the VA in White River Junction and look forward to my next year’s placement at Hampshire College Counseling!

Hello, my name is Morgan Pell. I am currently a fourth-year student and have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Alma College. I am fascinated by psychoanalytic and psychodynamic theories. In fact, I have been to both of Freud’s houses in London and Vienna! Within the psychodynamic frame, I have a passion for attachment theory. As a senior thesis, I conducted research regarding the influence of attachment style and adverse childhood experiences on romantic relationships. This study, which I presented in London at the International Attachment Conference, highlights the implications of our early life experiences on later interpersonal functioning. Within the Psychoanalytic Studies Group, I look forward to the opportunity to expand my knowledge and to bond with others who share these interests.
