El is our Founder, Head Counsellor and Geek Therapist at Deep Seas.
Deep Seas was created through El's dream of a therapeutic service that does not shut anyone out. They are a registered Counsellor with PACFA (Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia) and has been working in the child welfare sector for the last 10 years.
As an AuDHD person themselves, El works with their clients to explore different forms of expression to identify which ones feel most comfortable and effective for the individual. El believes that creative expression can promote emotional healing and personal growth. By engaging in the creative process, clients can gain insight into their emotions and thoughts, gaining a deeper self-awareness.
El enjoys reading DC, Marvel and Image comics, catching Pokemon, watching horror movies or Bob's Burgers. When they are not at Deep Seas throughout the week, they are spending their weekends playing lacrosse, hanging out with Winnie, or creating some abstract/multimedium art.
