About My Clients

I work with self proclaimed gamers and geeks who are struggling with where they want to go in life. Whether its managing the stresses of work, at home, or getting out and finding a tribe it can be difficult to get started. Your biggest and hardest boss could be yourself. Allowing yourself to feel emotions instead of ignoring them can be difficult to do, and having someone who is on your side as you process them can allow you to move forward in your life the way you want to move.

My Background and Approach

I help self proclaimed gamers, geeks, anime enthusiasts and their families discover a more value led life. Are you feeling lost, overwhelmed and not sure where to go? Wanting to find a new way of maneuvering through the world? Throughout our time together, we will discover what you find valuable and befriend those parts of you that mean well, but have led to unhealthy cycles. Without accepting difficult emotions, we struggle to manage them well. We will look at these parts together, and create a space to look at these difficult emotions so that they may be brought into your life in a more healthy manner. Ignoring difficult feelings gives you less options to work with. If you’d like a player 2 that wants to work with you in looking at the parts of us that are difficult to look at alone, you can reach out to schedule a session!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Many people don't want to share their love of video games, comics, anime, or TRPG because of a fear of being judged. I've been there. I want to create a space where geeks, gamers, and whoever can come in and not feel judged for what they like and get the mental health that they want to get for themselves. I was the person who was at their local card shop every Friday , driving through the night to make it to a fighting game tournament, not being able to sleep because a manga has enthralled me and I cant put it down. I know everyone has their own relationship with their fandoms. Utilizing these can be a gateway to your mental health and I want to incorporate that with your process of mental health. If you think I'm really great to work with your loved one and your loved one might be resistant to coming into therapy, perhaps a more productive focus would be me helping you with that person. If you think I could understand that person, then I can support you in relation to that person.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
