Katherine Russell is a Teaching Fellow in the Department of Clinical Psychology at Antioch University New England. Dr. Russell received her doctorate in clinical psychology from AUNE. She is excited to be returning to AUNE following her completion of post-doctoral training through the Albany Medical Center Department of Psychiatry. This training allowed Dr. Russell to take on multiple roles as clinician, trainer, and instructor while working within outpatient, inpatient, and general hospital settings. During her time at AMC Dr. Russell continued to explore her clinical and research interests related to establishing a psychological voice for bodily experience, enhancing multicultural perspectives in healthcare experience, and establishing body-mind-spirit integration within psychotherapeutic practice.
Dr. Russell completed her pre-doctoral training at the Carson Center in Westfield, Massachusetts and has also trained in a variety of settings including within the VA, college counseling, and at the AUNE PSC. Alongside these experiences she has enjoyed taking on roles within academia. She has taught at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; having been an adjunct professor of psychology within the Community College System of New Hampshire and teaching Social Psychology at AUNE. She is passionate about the roles of educator and mentor, and looks forward to continuing this work at AUNE.
In addition to teaching, Dr. Russell is honored to act as Interim Director of the Multicultural Center and oversee SERD. While a student at AUNE, she worked under her graduate advisor and former director of the MCC, Dr. Gargi Roysircar and was a member of SERD. Dr. Russell also participated in providing mental health counseling in Haiti through SERD/Disaster Shakti in 2013. She deeply respects Dr. Roysicar’s legacy of the MCC and SERD, and hopes to be able to continue the immensely important research, support, and mentorship which they provide.
