Tell us about your business.
As a geek who loves gaming, Dungeons and Dragons, and various other geek culture activities, I enjoy connecting the stories we witness and create to the therapeutic experience. We often use these activities to cope with pain we face, as the stories within these forms of media are based on the human experience. Even though painful experiences are inevitable, I believe that suffering does not have to hold us back from living. Engaging in geek culture can assist us in reducing that suffering, which is why I have completed Leyline’s Geek Cultural Competency Program and continue to attend their awesome trainings.
I specialize in working with adults in the areas of trauma, anxiety, mood disorders, grief and loss, life transitions, relationship issues, spirituality, self-esteem/self image, and women’s issues. I have been in private practice since 2016 and moved my practice solo in 2021.
