"Hi there--I'm Leyla! First, kudos to you for taking this step--finding a therapist isn't easy! It's my goal to provide you with a compassionate and creative space to work together on whatever may be holding you back or weighing you down. My philosophy in therapy is based on this belief: We are all entitled to love ourselves wholly and deeply. There's a lot that disconnects us from ourselves and our path--together we can rebuild the relationship to self and foster positive change, growth, and understanding. I am all about collaboration, imagination, and respect!"

"Working on who you are is among the most important tasks you undertake. Thoughtful people who find they are uncomfortable with something in themselves often turn to therapy to make a shift. Reasons to come to therapy differ: personal crisis, uncertainty, unwanted patterns, self doubt, harsh self-criticism, anxiety, etc... Therapy is an opportunity to understand yourself better and to experience being understood by another. "

"I specialize in working with individuals suffering from symptoms of anxiety and depression, both circumstantial and life-long, challenging life transitions and developmental stages, those seeking relationship building and separating, maternal mental health, parenting, life balance, first time, brave therapy seekers and an essential desire to be understood. It can be intimidating to begin the process of self-exploration. It is not a simple endeavor. However, when the fit between psychotherapist and therapy seeker is a match, it can feel immensely relieving. Each individual is unique as is one's process of self discovery. "

Are you noticing your relationship struggles make you feel lonelier rather than more open to each other? I provide an environment of safety where you may explore how you are stuck and how your persistent conflicts spoil your potential for intimacy. Tracking the repetitive patterns of communication, and the stories which confirm your most negative beliefs, I will strengthen your awareness to the influences that affect whether you keep repeating old patterns or open to real change."

"I am a licensed psychologist offering psychotherapy for adults, adolescents, couples, and infant-parent dyads. I approach my work from a psychodynamic, social/racial justice and queer feminist lens. I believe our childhood experiences and attachment relationships with our caregivers, in combination with our various social identity markers, shape us into the adults we grow up to become. I seek to understand each person's unique life circumstances and experiences so I can best support them in their process of healing and growth. Underlying my work is a deep commitment to interrupting the intergenerational transmission of trauma and oppression."

"Many individuals and couples approach me for therapy feeling they've hit a road block in their lives and are confused and frustrated in their attempts to grow beyond it. They are often uncertain - both about their capacity to change and about whether therapy can help. Couples may be hopeful or discouraged about transforming their repeated patterns of conflict or distance, but know that significant changes are needed if their relationship is to regain a sense of joy and strength. The art of therapy involves reaching beyond solving a particular problem and exploring the opportunites for growth embedded within it."

"Life guarantees all of us ups and downs- but in our highly individualistic culture, it is common to believe that one ought to be able to handle their own difficulties. In reality, stressful life events,transitions and challenges can become much more manageable with consistent support. Through active listening and reflection,I assist clients in accessing their own intuition about what makes their life feel satisfying. Therapy involves a growing self awareness that often uncovers outdated beliefs and patterns. I truly enjoy guiding clients through this discovery process.This often involves a look at how culture and upbringing influence behavior."

"Often in life, we struggle to connect with our own vitality. Whether we are making major life decisions, wrestling with longstanding difficulties, or longing for shifts we can’t yet name, we need access to a sense of our own true presence and potential. When that access is blocked or tenuous, we suffer. Anxiety, depression, panic, phobia, relational trouble, isolation, self-harm, destructive patterns, or simply feeling lost are some forms of that suffering. Coming into meaningful relationship with another person in therapy is a powerful way to restore your connection with yourself—or to build it for the first time."
