ABOUT Starship Therapise
How it All Started
Larisa and Justine met while they were in graduate school and have been co-conspirators ever since. They started working together at Blue Box Counseling and when Larisa departed for parts unknown (i.e. Chicago), they continued working together on numerous writing and research projects.
In order to keep in touch with one another and share their love for fandom and psychology, they set off on an ongoing mission on the Starship Therapise.. To date, this mission has spawned both a podcast and a book.

Justine specializes in working with clients who self-identify as being outside the mainstream.
