Self-described “mad scientist” Dr. Janina Scarlet is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and intends, “to take over the world with geek culture and compassion.” Inspired by Marvel’s X-Men, Dr. Scarlet developed “Superhero Therapy,” incorporating characters from geek culture into evidence-based therapy. Her latest book, Therapy Quest, is an interactive self-help book designed to help overcome anxiety, depression, and trauma by using a “choose your own adventure” format and examples from the fantasy genre. A seer named Anka spirits you to another world, proclaims you are the Chosen One, and insists that it’s your destiny to destroy an evil sorceress named Mallena. “Dr. Scarlet’s Therapy Quest is an innovative and fresh approach to taking care of your mental health...I can’t recommend this book enough!” says Jenna Busch, editor-in-chief of Legion of Leia. Joining her for this event is illustrator Vince Alvendia.
