Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a Jungian-oriented psychotherapist in private practice in Westport, CT. I have an M.S. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Oregon and hold a California license in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have practiced psychotherapy in San Diego, California and Istanbul, Turkey and am currently a licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Connecticut. I am also a certified Synergy Yoga teacher trained by yoga pioneer Peri Ness at the Synergy Yoga Center in Encinitas, CA. Over the past few years, I have been in training with well-known Jungian analyst and author Marion Woodman at her BodySoul Intensives and seminars, where I have deepened my understanding of the conscious feminine and the psyche-body connection. I bring over 25 years of diverse professional and personal experience to my practice. The theory of my practice has developed from my personal journey and experience. I have grown up bi-culturally influenced by both the Turkish and the American cultures. In seeking to understand my own identity I have used the unique mind-body connection of Jung and Yoga not only in my personal life, but in my private practice as well. I am committed to a nurturing, healing environment where clients can focus on identity and personal growth issues, integrating mind, body and soul.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
