Gabrielle Agin-Liebes

Gabrielle Agin-Liebes is a researcher in the NYU Psilocybin Cancer Anxiety Research Group. The study seeks to examine whether changes in perception and awareness prompted by psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy can improve anxiety, depression and existential distress experienced by people diagnosed with cancer.  

She is an investigator of the NYU Qualitative Interview Study, which aims to understand patient processes of sense-making and the attribution of meaning within the context of the psilocybin sessions and psychotherapy sessions using an Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. 

Gabrielle is a MA Psychology candidate at NYU's Graduate School of Arts & Science and will be starting her doctoral training in clinical psychology at Palo Alto University in the fall. Her research focuses on the study and development of contemplative and spiritual pathways that give rise to the self-compassionate self, with and without psychedelics.
