Micah is a doctoral student in Psychology: Consciousness and Society at the University of West Georgia, and he holds a Master’s degree in Psychology from the same program.
He has published on therapeutic approaches centering the person-in-context, as opposed to the individualizing medical model, as well as on the characteristics of people high in empathy. His current interests include the intersection of sociopolitical/economic structures and mental health, individualism in psychology, gender, liberation psychology, and mythopoetic perspectives inspired by Jungian thought. He is a student representative for the Society for Humanistic Psychology, as well as an avid attendee of conferences for the American Academy of Psychotherapists. Micah hopes to advocate for a psychological perspective that recognizes the meaningful, communal, and soulful dimensions of life.
