Counseling for New Beginnings

Serving Oceanside, North San Diego County, & anywhere by Skype

Madhuri Marelli, M.A., Ph.D.(c)


Depth psychology is a unique approach to counseling as it draws on your personal inner knowing. It can reveal the real underlying causes for your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and in your own timing. Every person has a psyche or inner nature consisting of instincts, beliefs, attitudes, values, and styles of thinking, feeling, intuition, and sensory perception. A variety of depth psychological processes attune to the psyche with an objective of learning to communicate with your own living unconscious. There is also a greater unconscious which typically speaks to us in dreams and fantasies. Learning its archetypal language can further unlock barriers in your life.

The aim of the depth psychological approach includes finding purpose and meaning in life, and healing through the psyche's natural individuation journey which is quite individualistic. A simple definition of individuation is the path toward wholeness where the unconscious is made more conscious (aware) over time, contributing to your understanding of past and present events. Becoming more conscious enables you to better understand traumas and wounds which can lead to transformational healing by lessening the influence of untoward past experiences. This potentially assists you in making better choices for your life that can align with fulfilling inner and outer needs, dreams, and goals.

My counseling work is designed to assist you ultimately in becoming independent rather than staying dependent on counseling, so that developing an empowering inner relationship with your own psyche can continue throughout life as the ultimate partner, exploring, discovering, and learning to love and appreciate your true self.

Counseling for New Beginnings is so named because we begin to know ourselves and can begin anew in every moment. Awakening is pivotal for feeling better about where you are in your life and making necessary new changes to feel better when appropriate. Counseling services are available to adult individuals, couple relationships, adult family members, and groups including businesses. Two specialty groups, dream work and grief recovery, are available for people in their places of worship, businesses, and families. I am also available via Skype or for speaking at your groups.

From a sacred inner space, we can maintain and sustain where we are, or make changes to move on in our lives. In this place of honest and sweet acceptance of ourselves and our feelings, gratitude, joy and peace move in to replace the known wrenching or less known buried pains. We can create new environments for ourselves inwardly and outwardly. This supports our needs, dreams and goals for our lives. This is the blueprint for depth psychological counseling as well as spiritual counseling and dreamwork.

For a New Beginning

In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.
For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.
It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.
Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.
Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life's desire.
Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.
