Gaming Approaches Towards Education (G.A.T.E.) ***

Gaming Approaches to Education, LLC are mental health providers that promote individual and social wellness in our homes and community.  Our vision is to create a place where people can grow and heal together. We use board gaming, role-playing and storytelling to remind us how to learn to have fun with others.

Years ago as therapist working in the home, we realized that gaming should not be limited to building rapport. Gaming could serve a greater purpose, it could create opportunities for families to come together, play together.

We found that the best games place emphasis on everyone's strengths. They make us think, feel, and adapt to different situations. We believe play can become practice for everyday life.

Our programs include board gaming, storytelling, role playing and chess therapy. For Child, Adolescent and Adult, depending on the client's need, we offer Individual or Group therapy, and we also offer Social Skills development groups.
