As a life-long gamer, I recognize the many educational and social benefits video games can offer. I also know that, for some, video games can present a serious concern. Because they are often designed to be habit-forming, many players find it challenging to balance their desire to play games with work, chores, family time, homework, and extracurricular activities. Parents may struggle to understand whether these games are harmless fun – a popular way to hang out with friends online – or an isolating obsession.

I work very well with clients who struggle with managing stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem or relationship issues. Common examples of issues that these clients face are trouble setting boundaries, feeling overwhelmed, relationship issues, lack of self-esteem or difficulty managing their emotions. These clients are hoping to increase their coping skills in these areas and want resources to assist in navigating their symptoms or need a safe and nonjudgmental space to talk things through. Evaluating all aspects of life through a collaborative relationship, we can work to decide how my client can live a thriving, healthy life.
