Dr. Churchill is a postdoctoral Fellow in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Psychoanalytic Studies who provides psychotherapy and psychological testing at the Austen Riggs Center. She obtained her bachelors in philosophy from Colorado College before obtaining her doctorate at George Washington University, where she received a University Fellowship Award for academic and scholarly achievement. During her graduate training, she was a teaching assistant for several classes, including History and Systems of Psychology, as well as Cognitive and Projective Assessment. Also during her graduate training, she completed the New York Society Fellowship program, as well as the Couple and Family Fellowship program with the Washington Center for Psychoanalysis. This past year, Dr. Churchill was on internship at Utah State Hospital, where she received intensive training in dialectical behavioral therapy and provided individual, group, and family therapy, as well as psychological assessments. She is currently interested in the overlap between psychodynamic psychotherapy and other psychotherapies, such as dialectical behavioral therapy, as well as how integrating components of a psychodynamic approach may improve the quality of care in non-dynamic intensive treatment milieus.
