Research interests

At the intersection of medicine and spirituality, transpersonal approaches to healing and wellness that promote psychospiritual development, as well as the phenomena of presence, intersubjectivity, and countertransference, inspire Dee’s work. Her research focuses on interpersonal physiological synchrony as a marker of biological coregulation, and the implications this may have on healing. Additionally, she enjoys research oriented toward the subjective experience of mysticism, wisdom, and the sacred feminine.
