Welcome to Deep in Wonder!
This is not your typical self-help site run by a psychologist who likes to write.
I’m not very much like the therapists or “shrinks” you’ve seen on TV.
Sometimes people are suprised when they discover that I don’t have couch for them to lie on, I don’t smoke a pipe, wear a bowtie or an ascott, or even say “tell me how that makes you feel” very often.
We all have stereotypes about therapists, and mostly those are just funny. I’m pretty different from Sigmund Freud, Frasier Crane, Dr. Phil, or any of the popular media portrayals of therapists.
While I do have a doctorate in clinical psychology, a license to practice as a Psychologist, and over 10 years of experience in private practice, my qualifications as a therapist are also deeply rooted in my life, my values, my character, my personal experiences of suffering and growth, and stumbling my way through challenges in life.
I aim to be humble, live well, stay focused on things that really matter, and promote life to its fullest all around me. I’m involved in several community projects aimed at improving the health of neighborhoods, kids, and people on the margins of society. I do all of this because I believe we as humans are part of a global family, and that the welfare of others, no matter who they are, impacts each of us.
