Why a non-profit?

Psychology for Geeks aims to create a safe space for everyone. We want to increase understanding of mental health and the geek community online and in various communities throughout central California. Knowing that many communities lack resources and access to mental health services, we want to provide free psychoeducation and other community events to build supportive communities. 

We are a 501 (c) (3) and we are eligible to receive tax-deductable donations.

Chair/Executive Director 

Dr. Elizabeth Sanchez Arvizu

I am the daughter of two Mexican immigrants. I made a point of traveling to as many places as possible to learn as much as possible. My education journey took me from a town in the middle of nowhere, Mexico -> town in the middle of nowhere in California -> UC Merced -> Rome, Italy -> UCM -> Hong Kong University ->Alliant International Univerisity, San Diego.

In my travels, I learned about many different cultures, which helped me understand how culture impacts us, our mental health, and our everyday life. 

 I obtained my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and I have worked in a variety of settings and ages. I love working with children/adolescents. I am an all-inclusive therapist passionate about using pop culture in sessions. I want to create a safe space for everyone, including immigrants, geeks, LGBTQ+,  and marginalized communities. 

If used carefully, the media and social media, by extension, can be a great medium to help us with our mental health. I created this nonprofit organization to build a community of geeks and therapists working together to improve our mental health.

I believe it's important to address a person's culture in therapy, which includes geek culture. Whenever I make a reference to a movie or show in therapy, I noticed an increase in the client's interest and enjoyment. 

Therapy can be a difficult process because we are discussing painful experiences, that we may have been avoiding for years. 

There is no reason why therapy needs to be boring. When a therapist incorporates what the client is passionate about in the therapy session the client feels more comfortable, interested, and willing to actively participate in the session. 

Geek culture is part of my identity. Immersing myself in the world of fiction allowed me to bond with my brothers, make new friends, and overcome challenges. In many ways, it made my life exciting and fun. I want to share that with others through this website and my social media.
