My Approach to Helping

I believe therapy should be a collaborative process, built on mutual respect, genuineness, and trust. In our work together, I strive to build an authentic therapeutic relationship where we can work together to identify your values, and take actionable steps towards positive change in your life. I strongly believe in the importance of common therapeutic factors, including empathy, authenticity, and clear expectations.

I am personally and professionally familiar with geek and gaming culture, and believe these experiences, beliefs, and identities have a place in a successful therapeutic relationship. Further, I have experience working with lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals, and all members of the LGBTQ+ community are welcome as clients. I believe in the power of community that is built on shared values and experiences. If you identify as a member of the LGBTQ+ andor gaming communities and would like to explore these identities as part of your therapy experience, or you would simply prefer a therapist within these communities, we may be a good fit.

I believe in the integration of social justice in therapy, and work to recognize and acknowledge the impacts of diversity, privilege, discrimination, and culture on an individual’s experience. When setting treatment goals and exploring values, the impact of an individual’s identities and the intersections of those identities are considered. It is important for me to create a collaborative environment where you feel safe to express your thoughts and feelings. As a fit is instrumental to a successful therapy experience, I encourage you to reach out to me to ask any questions you have and confirm we can work well together.

I am a licensed psychologist with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of North Texas. In addition to my training and experience with evidence-based treatments such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), I am nationally certified in the trauma-focused treatment Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT).

More Info About My Practice

Our Mission
Game to Grow is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the use of games for therapeutic, educational, and community growth. Game to Grow believes in the inherent benefits of games to those who play them, and understands these benefits are enhanced when games are intentionally facilitated by a trained professional. Our organization has three main goals: 1. Provide therapeutic and educational gaming groups that contribute to the growth of communities. 2. Promote an understanding of the power and benefit of games across the world. 3. Train others to use game-based interventions intentionally to help youth and other populations.

Individual Counseling Services
Game to Grow provides effective, accessible, and professional individual counseling services via telehealth software, tailored to the specific needs of each individual client. In addition to their individual specialty areas, each of our clinicians have specialized training and experience in working with individuals who identify as geeks and gamers. We strive to offer affordable counseling rates to the community, making mental health and wellness services affordable and accessible to all.

Therapeutic Social Skills Groups
Game to Grow’s weekly therapeutic social skills groups help participants become more confident, creative, and socially capable through the intentional facilitation of customized, collaborative gaming experiences. Our facilitators use games of all kinds, most notably Dungeons and Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, and Minecraft to help participants overcome personal challenges and form meaningful, supportive friendships. While a diagnosis is not required to attend groups, participants in Game to Grow’s therapeutic social skills programs are frequently struggling with challenges associated with autism, ADHD, social anxiety, or depression. Participants develop valuable skills related to self-regulation, perspective-taking, communication and collaboration, executive functioning, and imaginative play, all while playing games in a safe, supportive, and fun environment.
