Weavers of Destiny

Utilizing Dungeons & Dragons to foster social skills and a sense of identity and belonging... without screens.

Dungeons & Dragons is a tabletop roleplaying game (not a video game). Essentially, it is collaborative storytelling with a group of people - think improv theater where the players are both the actors and the audience.  A group of adventurers sets out on quests in a medieval fantasy setting, gaining loot and experience along the way. 
Each group member designs their own D&D (5th ed.) character with a backstory and then role plays as that character for the rest of the game - making decisions as their character, not themselves.  Through their characters, group members have the chance to try on personality characteristics they don't yet possess or feel confident in. They may also enhance several social skills; examples include: empathy, creative problem solving, frustration tolerance, communication and collaboration.  Other benefits include building resilience against future stress, joining the nerd community, feeling a sense of belonging, and being inspired to try other creative hobbies! You may be surprised at how playing this game can ignite creativity and passion.

With a therapist as the Dungeon Master, I can facilitate emotional regulation, balance participation, and arrange potential triggers for growth.

No materials or previous D&D experience necessary!

Groups are arranged by age (middle, junior, or high school, young adults, etc.) and are gender inclusive. At this time, the minimum age is 12 y/o. Minimum of 4 with a maximum of 6 group members per campaign. 90-minute sessions, once a week for 10 weeks.

A free, individual intake session with the group member and their primary caregiver (for those under 18) is required help ensure appropriateness of fit. 
During intake, group members will create their character and get started on their backstory. 

Groups are 'closed' once started; when the groups are filled, a waitlist will be created.

Members are provided light snacks during session and leave the campaign with a set of dice and a character miniature. 

Attendance is sold as a package. Private pay only.  **Special Note: I cannot accept clients who are on Medicaid.**
