Grant Sparks, MS (Co-Presenter): My path towards counseling began when I became a member of Alcoholics Anonymous and chose to work towards a sober life. I saw how using experience, strength, hope, and empathy could bring about significant and insightful changes in a person’s way of life. From those experiences as a newcomer in recovery, and then a peer counselor for several years, I focused on pursuing my education in Psychology. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Human Services from Clayton State University in 2018 and followed that with a Master of Science in Clinical and Counseling Psychology in 2020 from Clayton State University. It was during my master’s program that I truly found my passion: being a geek therapist. Believe it or not, that’s a thing! Using my knowledge of psychology and my life experience of being a huge nerd, it is my dream to bring healing and care to an often-misunderstood population. One of the greatest aspects of being a geek is the intersectionality inherent in the community! I work with geeks, nerds, dorks, and dweebs, LGBTQIA folx, members of the Kink community, ethical non-monogamists, and people of all cultures and spiritualities.
