I am a full time nerd therapist! I run Dungeons & Dragons, Minecraft, Roblox, Civ 6 and Fortnite as therapy. AMA!
Hi folks! I had the most AMAZING time in March with an AMA I thought I'd come back now that I've gone full time and am running new programs!

So hey, I'm a nerdy counsellor from Perth, Western Australia and my growing specialty is the use of videogames as therapy or to provide a shared activity during therapy. I've been running D&D therapy for nearly a year now and I'm hoping to soon have the opportunity to provide other TTRPGs in sessions. My practice is found at www.counsellingwithmike.com.au
I'm also using Roblox, Civ 6 and Minecraft in the therapy room and it's my hope to get my therapeutic Fortnite program rolling soon!
I also provide the Pop Culture Competence project, where I explain nerdy stuff to non-nerdy clinicians, teachers and parents. You can find it at http://popculturecompetence.wordpress.com
Edit 1: Hey folks holy heck I didn't expect this to go off like it has. It's 1:30am and I need to hit the hay! I will be back in the morning for followups! Good vibes and victory, y'all!
