Dr. Simone Lundquist earned her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from California School of Professional Psychology in San Francisco. Dr. Lundquist developed the Personal Agency Questionnaire (PAQ), an outcome assessment tool based on the concept of agency in Narrative Theory in 2012. She conducted another research on this outcome measure (PAQ) with added variables of Gender, Perception of being overweight, and Fat acceptance to establish additional validity and reliability for the Personal Agency Questionnaire in 2015. There is a link to this published research paper, below.
Dr. Lundquist has gained rich experiences serving culturally diverse clientele from different walks of life, as a clinician, in community mental health agencies such as Momentum for Mental Health and the Center for Survivors of Torture. She has provided numerous trainings, workshops, and panels addressing effective ways of helping individuals overcome the problems that negatively impacted their lives for over 20 years now. Her successful "Voice Hearing" groups facilitated the liberation of many individuals diagnosed with psychosis from Mental health system who are currently enjoying their independent lives. In her private practice, Beyond Limits with Dr. Simone, she is now helping her clients re-invent themselves and be all that they want to be.
Currently, Dr. Lundquist maintains an active line of research investigating the damaging impacts of the dominant cultural discourses on the lives of individuals and their sense of personal agency.
