I am a licensed therapist, doctor of human development, and lifelong gamer.
I host a "[Gaming] Sessions with a Therapist" stream on twitch that focuses on playing games and talking about mental health, relationships, and more! My goal is to create a safe, affirmative space where people who enjoy watching streams can talk about what's going on in their lives not just with me, but with my community. I'm here to listen, give some general advice if desired, and have fun!
I maintain a full caseload IRL when I'm not streaming. I have a PhD from Virginia Tech, a MS from Northwestern University, and a BS from Purdue University. I recently decided to combine my love of video games with my credentials as a therapist after learning that many large streamers often have to tell their viewers not to use them as therapists.
Facilitate a safe, comfortable space (the virtual world) that makes it easier for my community to feel like they can open up and share what's happening in their lives.
Destiny, World of Warcraft, Minecraft
