To bring more insight, purpose, and meaning to the clinical
setting through demonstration and practical application of
depth psychological concepts.
HOW CREATIVE DEPTH CAME INTO BEING
As a tool of the work, it is imperative that we as clinicians continue to cultivate and nurture our own inner lives. Creative Depth was born out of a desire to facilitate this essential directive and our programs are purposefully designed to support you in cultivating a deep and meaningful relationship with the inner realm. Over the years we have come to more fully realize that learning ways to develop an ongoing relationship with the inner landscape also brings more depth and meaning to clinical work and enlivens the therapeutic process.
WHAT IS DEPTH PSYCHOLOGY?
Depth psychology refers to the process and practice of investigating the unconscious. This form of psychology seeks to delve into and explore the depths of the psyche in order to elucidate symbolic material that lies outside conscious awareness. This symbolic material is the language of the unconscious that bridges the gap between the conscious and unconscious to reveal hidden resources that can bolster vitality.
HOW CAN CREATIVE DEPTH ENHANCE AND SUPPORT YOU AND YOUR CLINICAL WORK?
The study and application of depth psychology and its principles supports the establishment and maintenance of a vital connection to deeper meaning and purpose. Creative depth has carefully crafted programs based on these principles that are interesting, easy to grasp, and creatively designed to make your learning experience enjoyable and fun. Our programs and courses provide exposure to and direct application of depth psychological principles that are aimed to instigate self-reflection and provide you with opportunities to nurture your relationship with the unconscious and deepen your psychological insight. We aim to support you in cultivating and nurturing a meaningful relationship with the inner realm so you can acquire a deeper appreciation for the innate intelligence of the unconscious. Through your own lived-experience you will begin to recognize and appreciate the value of incorporating depth psychological concepts into your practice.

Marc Adams, MBA, LMSW
Wendy Balconi, Ph.D., LCSW
Marc has always been attracted to learning new ways of seeing and approaching life's many situations and challenges. Much like Carl Jung, Marc grew up with a father who was a minister providing access to deep psychological material and spiritual traditions from a very early age. Marc continued to be exposed to new perspectives by immersing himself into many fields of study, philosophies, different cultures, and a variety of living and work environments including living abroad. These experiences provided a backdrop towards developing particular areas of interest including Jungian psychology, Sufi traditions, Non-duality and Fourth Way teachings. Many of the teachings derive from various sources including C.G. Jung, M. Nicoll, B. Gibson, G.I. Gurdjieff, I. Shah, J. Krishnamurti, R. Spira among others. These new perspectives served as portals to opening a new way of being and experiencing.
Marc’s professional journey has included working in the volatile banking industry for over 28 years before acquiring a psychotherapy license while navigating major life transitions. He also dedicated years to learning guitar concentrating on Flamenco, dancing focusing on Argentine tango, and intensive study abroad programs to gain fluency in multiple languages. One key element that has remained constant throughout the years has been a magnetic attraction to inner work and, ultimately, the desire to partner with others in facilitating their journey to experience new perspectives and new ways of being.
Additionally, Marc serves as a board member of Charlotte Friends of Jung non-profit organization. This interest and expertise in Jungian Psychology also informs his therapeutic approach.
