Mila Kirstie C. Kulsa is currently a doctoral candidate in the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. Program at the Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology at Adelphi University. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with Honors from New York University as well as a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Teachers College Columbia University. Previously, Mila Kirstie has worked in multiple labs which conducted research on severe psychic distress, psychotherapeutic alliance, glioblastomas, behavioral interventions, and perception. In addition, she facilitated free healthcare for underserved populations and provided dance therapy for neurodivergent children, adolescents, and adults.
Struck by the realities of care which she encountered while collaborating with psychiatric sufferers, she advocates for these persons who comprise one of the most marginalized, vulnerable, and misunderstood populations. Ultimately, Mila Kirstie aspires to do what she can to mediate the readmittance rate into psychiatric hospitals by providing psychotherapeutic services. Expanding on her Master’s research, she focuses her doctoral studies on further understanding subjectivity, the multifaceted components of psychiatric care, and healing of psychiatric sufferers.
