Angeline Siegel

Adjunct Faculty

Humanistic and Clinical Psychology
Saybrook University

My academic background includes a B.S. in psychology from Temple University, along with a M.S. and Ph.D. in Mind-Body Medicine with a specialization in healthcare research from Saybrook University. My passion revolves around promoting wellness as a holistic concept and practice within healthcare and scientific settings, be it with humans or non-human animals. In addition to my research experience, my professional background includes executive management in the animal welfare non-profit sector, board chair of a local non-profit, supervisor of a psychology research laboratory, as well as a long-term private practice. The topics of research I am interested in are human-animal intersubjectivity, ethics, alternative and indigenous medicines, flourishing, and research methodology. The most recent academic presentations were given at Minding Animals Conference in New Delhi, India where I discussed my research on scientist-animal intersubjectivity and cultivating mindfulness as part of a scientific research practice. I live amongst the coastal redwood forests in California with my husband and giant Saint Bernard puppy, Sabine.
