My Approach to Helping

One of my deepest held values is to be able to speak candidly with others, to see and be seen. In a context of trust, where both parties are free of fear of the other’s reaction, genuine communication is a powerful and aligning force. As we work together to meet your goals, you can consistently expect my compassion, flexibility, and commitment. Given my training and experience in the counseling field, I will facilitate evidence-based treatments and intentionally integrate approaches from various modalities to meet your needs. When working with children and adolescents, I will incorporate a family systems approach and will strive to meet your family’s specific therapy goals at the developmental level of each child.

I am personally and professionally familiar with geek and gaming culture and am competent to incorporate it into our therapy when appropriate. If you identify as a part of gaming, tech, or geek culture, I would be excited to bring those pieces of your life and passion into our therapy sessions to better connect our discussions with you. I hold an important value in my approach to life: that games provide a context for play, which encourages and rewards exploration, ultimately promoting creativity, learning, and wellness.

I am a licensed psychologist with a Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of North Texas. I have focused my career on delivering empirically supported treatments. My prevailing therapeutic orientation is cognitive-behavioral, integrated with other orientations that include elements of mindfulness, values-based, and strengths-based approaches. Additionally, I ascribe closely to the importance of common factors, such as authenticity, positive regard, and a strong working alliance between my clients and myself. I strive to select the most auspicious treatment protocol for my clients, flexibly integrating diverse interventions to accommodate my clients’ needs. Further, I believe flexibility in intervention selection and implementation is crucial in effective treatment.

I strive to maintain consistent transparency in our work together in order to create a collaborative environment that enables the free exchange of thoughts and feelings. I invite you to reach out to me to learn more and ensure that we're a good fit.

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.
