Dig Down Deep™ is a coaching, consulting, and counseling firm - based on marriage & family therapy, health coaching, and sport psychology - that helps people make mental, emotional, and behavioral adjustments to live an authentic, purposeful, and fulfilling life.


If you feel stressed personally, relationally, or professionally - and want or need help through a phase or stage of your life - I can identify your core issues and guide you to gain the insight and awareness necessary for change.


Family Systems Therapy focuses on relationships. I treat your concerns, issues, and problems in the context of your personal and professional circles, squares, and triangles by navigating the web of connections that shape and support your life. The dynamics of the relationships in your genogram and ecomap drives the work I do with you.

Trauma Healing

I am trained and certified in Developmental Immaturity and Post Induction Therapy - "The Meadows Model" - by Pia Mellody. I am also educated in Prolonged Exposure Emotional Processing Therapy for PTSD by Edna Foa.

Free Consultation

I provide a pro bono biopsychosocial-spiritual assessment and consultation in a comfortable and confidential setting that allows you to share, receive feedback, and collaborate on a treatment plan that helps you grow.

Group Psychotherapy

Group Therapy is a powerful modality for healthy behavioral change. I charge $20 for a 90-minute group session. A maximum of six participants are allowed in each group.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®

The MBTI® provides a foundation for understanding yourself within personal and professional relationships and applying that information to the way you think, communicate, and interact with people. I charge $120 for the assessment which includes a 45-minute review session. After you pay, I will promptly email you a link to the instrument. When you complete the assessment, I will contact you to schedule your review session. The MBTI® is a helpful tool for self-awareness and improvement that sets the stage for your learning and development in therapy.


I offer online counseling for people in California. I charge $60 for a 45-minute teletherapy session. Please call me for a free 15-minute assessment before you pay. If we decide that we are a good fit for each other in teletherapy, then you can pay and I will schedule your online appointment.



"A fist pump is a euphoric phenomenon after "X" tapped into C (coping skill), that helped "X" manage B (block), which allowed "X" to obtain A (accomplishment). A person must learn how to assertively adapt, improvise, and overcome episodes of adversity, conflict, and turmoil by mentally, emotionally, and physically enduring and persevering through inescapable resistance in order to thrive. Athletes must dig down deep in the heat of competition to win; People must dig down deep in the game of life to succeed. The deeper we dig, the higher we soar." © - Kirby Maus

Sports & Life in Psychotherapy

"We play by the rules. We show up. We are teachable. We are coachable. We warm up. We ask questions. We listen. We set a goal. We plan. We focus. We execute. We practice. We do our homework. We do our best. We crawl. We walk. We run. We have fun. We slip. We trip. We fall. We get dirty. We play hard. We keep score. We attack. We defend. We get knocked down. We pick ourselves up. We take timeouts. We pivot. We take risks. We get uncomfortable. We feel. We resist. We breathe. We press on. We do brave and courageous things. We sweat. We finish. We win or lose. We laugh and cry. We shake hands and hug. We reflect. We learn. We grow. We are grateful for the experience. We move on. We don't have to be good to play. We just need to dig down deep." - Kirby Maus
