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 notice 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. 


Eunice Kung, MA, CCLS

Hi! I’m Eunice, the secretary for psychology for geeks! In my free time, I love to hang out with my dog, Bailey, try a new dessert recipe, & watch all the Disney movies! 

As a healthcare employee, I see the importance and positive impact mental health support has on patients and families. I think Psychology for Geeks is a cool way to incorporate anime/ character themes into educating about mental health! The reason I joined Psychology for geeks is the hope to bring more awareness of mental health opportunities and continue educating others about the importance of mental health. 


Megan Chan, MBA

Hi there! I'm Megan, a self-proclaimed aficionado of all things cozy and entertaining. You'll often find me engrossed in a captivating board game, chuckling at stand-up comedy specials, or diving into the intricate worlds of webtoons. My downtime is spent binge-watching TV shows, with a particular penchant for Doctor Who, Supernatural, Haikyu, Harley Quinn, Friends, and Harry Potter—each offering its own unique escape into fantastical realms.

Beyond my hobbies, I hold a strong belief in the importance of mental health. I advocate for the recognition that mental well-being is as vital as physical health, resonating with the idea that self-awareness and growth are essential for personal fulfillment. I firmly believe that seeking professional guidance isn't about relinquishing control but rather about equipping oneself with tools and insights to navigate life's complexities independently. Let's embrace the journey of self-improvement together, fostering a culture of understanding and support.

Dorcas Chang 

Professionally, I am a youth director and a student in counseling. Personally, I am a daughter, an only child of an immigrant and a refugee, and a griever of my mother. And if you really get to know me, you will discover that I am a little too obsessed with the color lavender, should probably cut back on the caffeine, and will usually opt for shows and movies with subtitles. But what I want you to know is that I am constantly learning, often stumbling, but hopefully growing every time in the most painful lessons, on how to love myself and others like how Jesus would. The world is full of all kinds of sufferings, but I hope there can be breakthroughs for even the most excruciating and impossible ones. “The darkest hour is just before the dawn.” As a mental health advocate, I hope to encourage and challenge those around me to be more compassionate to themselves and others when their mental health is suffering, and to never give up when it comes to pursuing better mental health for ourselves, each other, and the future generation. 

P.S. I geek out on Kdramas.
