Geek Therapy

Geek Therapy

What is Geek Therapy? Geek Therapy encompasses many different paradigms of thought, intellectual curiosities, and specialized interests outside of “normal” social conformity. This can range from the more well-known areas of video games, comic cons, and TV shows to the less well-known topics of board games and verbose fantasy novels. Yet, there are clinicians who use these geek cultural artifacts to promote social normalcy, community, reduce anxiety and depression, and help clients understand who they are through their interests.

The Turtle Story

The Turtle Story

Welcome to the Turtle Family Like any other family, we are not perfect. But we believe you will find that the Turtles are compassionate, understanding, diverse, resilient, friendly, and dependable. We celebrate the differences we all bring to the group, and we recognize that together we are greater than any one of us. At the same time, we also understand that each of us are on our own unique path through this world, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution to any given challenge. Each of us takes pride in taking steps on our own path, in a way that seems right for us. And we realize that with every step comes a new perspective. Sometimes we acknowledge a step was not as wise as we thought, and we must immediately change direction. Other times after a step we discover a whole new worldview that takes a while to digest.
