Deepak Penesetti MD, aka "Dr. Deep" is a board-certified psychiatrist with over a decade of experience in helping improve the mental health trajectories of children, adolescents & adults through the science and art of therapy, including medication and non-medication techniques. Dr. Deep has trained at the highest possible level with a full breadth of understanding of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM). At the core of his care is his and his family's lived experience. Layered upon this is his blended talk-therapy that has the benefit of incorporating multiple evidence-based techniques including psychodynamic psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) & Habit Reversal Therapy (HRT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Mindfulness, Schema Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), among others. When appropriate, he thoughtfully prescribes and tailors medications. His sessions are both in-person & through video-call. Though Dr. Deep has limited availability, openings for short-term care and consultation are released on January 1st, April 1st, July 1st & October 1st of each year.
Beyond the office


As an expert in Play Therapy, he knows it doesn't just work for kids! Dr. Deep designed his workshops because he wants to reach those who don't make it to his office. In his approach, he strives to not only "give someone therapeutic fish but also teach them how to therapeutically fish." He has taken everything he has learned over 15 years of medical "books" and his real clinical cases and broken it down into these immersive workshops and curriculums for workplaces, schools and communities. Everyone deserves the reward of knowing evidence-based techniques and insights to help maintain their mental health better (and have fun while doing it!)



Dr. Deep says, "therapeutic conversation can be like a dance floor at a wedding -- there are some folks already in the middle, there are those around the perimeter who are just waiting for the right song to jump in but even in the way, way back there are the silent ones who are eating cake... if you look closely though they may be tapping their feet." So, we have to provide experiences that enable everyone, even those on the outside, to safely "peer in through their peers." Whether you are looking to bring greater depth to an event you will be hosting or looking to join the next event that Dr. Deep is leading, help fuel the mental health movement that is underway. The one where conversation isn't converted into performance, where we connect in ways that are helpful instead of hurtful to our emotional health, and where feel more connected to the world through each other.
