    Boonie Sripom: How Archetypes Make Us Who We Are

    Boonie Sripom: How Archetypes Make Us Who We Are

    Boonie Sripom, MA, is a therapy-informed and gamer-affirmative coach who uses archetype systems to support neurodivergent people and their families. She loves seeing the inner worlds and cognitions of people through their fandoms like video games, superhero culture, and creative interests — it's all meaningful! Boonie started working with preschool and school-aged children, and now most of her clients are college-aged and "failure to launch" gamers/2e gifted young adults. Boonie says it's been an interesting transition because “it's felt like I've ‘grown up’ with the clients I've served.”

    • How knowing your own archetypes can help uncover your authentic self
    • Why it’s a struggle to be a twice-exceptional (2E) gifted person
