Do you relate to the world through your Nerdy interests? Do you love to watch anime, play video games, or play tabletop role-playing games? Do you feel that being a Nerd/Geek is part of who you are and how you cope with the world? If this sounds like you, whether you are a teen or just young at heart, my practice is for you! I incorporate Geek and Nerd culture into both my individual therapy and my group therapy! I believe that nerdy interests can help us make sense of the world just like music or art. I treat both individual clients as well as run Therapeutically Applied- Role Playing Game Social Skills groups!

I have been in the mental health field for 13 years and I am an avid nerd, geek, and I love playing role-playing games for fun as well as using them as a therapy tool.
