Apps in therapy - Geeks & Family Therapy

I think I should preface this by saying in no way should any of these apps be used without therapy. These are not ways to diagnose or treat alone, but in conjunction with mental health professionals. Code therapy is a 15 minute documentary that discusses depression. Discussing that depression is the second largest cause of disability in the world and then discussing apps that can be used to help those who are suffering from depression....

Ep. 08: Meta Batman, Female Doctor, BHNB - Geeks & Family Therapy

SPOILERS!!!!!!!!! OMG Batman is a meta… Kat goes on a rant on how everyone says that Batman is the best super hero because he has no super powers (other than he’s super rich, doesn’t make him a hero), and now….. in the Suicide Squad, he is classified as a meta due to his exposure to Nth metal.

Level 60 Bikini Virgin Killer Sweater - Geeks & Family Therapy

My armor class is higher, that is cool, but it looks like I’m riding through Azeroth naked, or in a bikini. But when you pick up the armor in any dungeon, it will look like a really cool breast plate, or chain mail pants and when you put it on it’s like a loincloth. Is this what guys are looking for?
