In therapy, you will explore “what’s wrong for you” instead of “what’s wrong with you”. There is enormous potential for self-awareness and self-growth with help from a listening, caring, and attuned therapist. I provide Relational Therapy, which holds that there is great potential for healing, growth and change from within a therapeutic relationship. I meet my clients with great respect, as a fellow traveler in the therapeutic journey. My wish is to cultivate a safe space for my clients to experience their emotions and encounter their beliefs about themselves.
As someone who has gone through the journey of immigration, I offer deep empathy and compassion in the therapy room (virtual or otherwise) for clients dealing with the challenges (such as loneliness, melancholy, alienation, loss, culture shock) of this experience. I offer therapy both in English and Turkish.
My other area of expertise is supporting students and academic clients struggling with writer’s block, low self-esteem, imposter syndrome and isolation in their academic career paths.
