Darius Cikanavicius is the founder of Self-Archeology, a website dedicated to mental health, personal growth, human development, childhood trauma, overcoming adverse childhood experiences, and authentic happiness. He is a writer, educator, mental health advocate, and world traveler who currently lives in Calgary, Canada. Since 2011, Darius has worked professionally with people from all over the world as a psychological consultant and a certified life coach.
Before his therapeutic and educational work, Darius worked as a freelance translator, editor, and writer in his home country of Lithuania. Since his childhood, he has always been interested in human behavior, thought, human experience, relationships, communication, logic, and truth—about both the world and himself. As a young adult, his interest in psychology, human development, philosophy, and self-improvement resulted in the creation of his website project called Self-Archeology, and its Lithuanian counterpart Saviarcheologija. He has been running them ever since.
Over the years, Darius has produced dozens of articles and videos on topics like childhood trauma, emotional literacy, child abuse, healing, self-esteem, relationships, communication, social anxiety, self-care, dissociation, empathy, rationality, dream analysis, and much more. He has translated numerous articles, books, and videos on childhood trauma, philosophy, and other aforementioned topics and some of Darius’ work has been translated into other languages, too. Recently, Darius has published a new book titled Human Development and Trauma: How Childhood Shapes Us into Who We Are as Adults.
