Dharmakaya Colgan, PhD, C-IAYT
Dharmakaya received her PhD in clinical psychology from Pacific University in 2017. Her personal meditation practice and social action experiences led her to pursue studies in clinical psychology, specializing in integrated healthcare, mind-body medicine, and yoga therapy. She is currently an NIH/NCCIH T32 postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Neurology at Oregon Health & Science University. Her current research focuses on novel approaches to studying psychophysiological mechanisms of mind-body approaches among high-stress and chronic pain populations. Clinically, she currently conducts pre-, intra-, and postoperative neuropsychological assessments for individuals undergoing awake craniotomies. She loves to explore faraway places, wonder through the woods, and scuba dive in warm waters.
