About me:

I am a licensed psychologist in southern California who likes to blog about psychology and geek culture. I love anime, Dungeons & Dragons, superheroes, and Asian dramas. I like to challenge myself doing things I'm not good at. I also proudly belong to many fandoms, which you will discover easily if you browse through some of my posts.

What's up with this blog:

I started this blog for these reasons:

1) to share information about psychology
2) to explore the intersection of geek culture and psychology
3) to geek out

I write about the psychology of different things, like television series, characters from works of fiction, or psychological disorders as represented in works of fiction, all based on my own opinions. My opinions are my own, and I write for fun. I am not writing on behalf of any organization, company, or any other individual. I don't provide professional behavioral health/therapeutic services through this blog. I do not manage my private practice through this personal blog, so please do not use this to contact me for therapeutic services, as I don't check in on the comments frequently. Definitely do not use this blog to seek emergency services (call your local crisis line instead). 

You'll notice the plural in "Shrinks & Geeks." That's because if you're reading this, you're most likely either a shrink, a geek, or both, or you have an interest in either/or! Also because from time to time, though infrequent, I may have guest writers.

You may also notice the relative inactivity in this blog. I have a full time primary job as well as a part time private practice. While I love writing about these things, I also want to keep things healthy and balanced, and that often means spending more time with family and friends than blogging. You can check out my Twitter account to see what I'm up to.

So hang out, look around, and have a good time! ♥
