Welcome everyone! It's great to get back to writing.
I'm Dr. Steve Kuniak. Maybe we've met before at one of the conventions I've attended, or perhaps we've talked on Twitter or Facebook. Maybe you're totally new and arriving here for the first time. I've been working as a mental health counselor for over a decade now, and have been a geek and gamer since I was born. Truly, for those of you who don't know the story, I've been playing video games since I was about 4 years old, and basically learned to read through comic books. I've dedicated a huge portion of my career to using my mental health credentials to educate folks around the idea that being a "Geek" or "Gamer" really isn't bad. In fact, I believe that when people use the stuff we love in healthy ways, it can actually be really good for you. I've done some blogging and been interviewed on these ideas before (check out the Resources Tab for links to articles), and plan to do more. Experience Points is that base for these new initiatives. My goal is to grow this site into a resource center, and eventually move into doing outreach services as well.
I have several projects I'm working on simultaneously right now. I look forward to sharing them as they reach completion. For now, this Blog will serve as a place where I, and some of my colleagues, can share what's "good in gaming," or what's "good in being a geek." I look forward to catching up with everyone on social media and out in the world as well. For now, thanks for stopping by, and plan for an update here every week going forward!
All the best,
