"I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults, children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions."

"If you're here you may be feeling stuck, frustrated, unfulfilled, and uncertain about what to do. Try as we might, we often can't make changes in the areas of life that matter most to us - relationships, family, love, and sex. At the same time, we may feel hesitant to ask for help, fearing that we may be judged or not find relief. Asking for help is a characteristic of successful, happy people, and is the first step to building the life that you want."

"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!"

"All of us grapple at times with thoughts and feelings that are too much to bear alone and that generate suffering in body and mind. Creating an emotionally safe yet challenging therapeutic space, one that respects your timing, lies at the heart of my approach. I offer both short term treatment and long term intensive treatment for couples and individuals, depending on your needs and circumstances. Many clients find that their symptoms diminish, their suffering decreases, and their development proceeds as a result of talking with someone who listens deeply and is emotionally available."
