Blog

Welcome! Our goal with this blog is to tap into the rich clinical knowledge of our team in order to provide high quality, curated content that is useful to both clients and therapists. Some articles such as those in our “Therapy 101” series are more introductory and aimed at people who are considering or are new to therapy. Others like our “Deep Eddy Discussions” series dive deeper into a topic and may be more relevant to therapists or experienced clients. We hope that this blog will serve as a valuable resource for enriching your therapy experience here at Deep Eddy.
