My goal is to help anyone who's struggling realize that it doesn't have to be so hard. I help build healthy coping skills and break the cycle of behavior patterns that aren't working, and learn to manage feelings and emotions so that they are not overwhelming. I specialize in Eating Disorders as well as depression and anxiety. I believe that we can work together to change, build better relationships and help you feel more connected and happy in your life.
We sometimes feel isolated or alone when dealing with life's challenges. Whether feeling overwhelmed, frustrated by certain relationships in our lives, or trying to cope with a particularly challenging situation, I will help to create a safe, nurturing and non-judgmental environment to discuss these issues. Together we will explore your feelings, attitudes and perceptions towards these challenges and work to empower you to overcome these obstacles and live an emotionally healthy life.
As a licensed psychologist in New Jersey and New York, I provide individual and family psychotherapy as well as couples counseling in my private practice. I treat children, adolscents, and adults and work with a Turkish-speaking population as well, given that I speak Turkish fluently and have a solid understanding of the culture. I have worked with individuals presenting with anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders, multi-cultural/assimilation issues, women's issues, chronic illnesses, and behavioral problems.
Are you feeling down, stuck, or overwhelmed? Are things just not working out despite your best efforts? If so, I know my first priority will be to listen to you in such a way that you are left feeling heard and understood. As a team, we will develop an individualized plan to turn your life around. My approach will be based on your specific needs and what works for you.

The belief here is that we are born with the ability to self-generate the changes we might be seeking at any point in the life-span. Therapy, then, is collaboration: client and therapist cooperatively removing those "inner" obstacles that can block the natural growth process--that can make us feel so dishearteningly stuck or so hopelessly overwhelmed. Therapy represents a challenging opportunity. The expectation is always that my clients will find reward in this focused collaboration, as well as in its results--and in as few sessions as possible.
The mind is where everything is processed that determines how an individual thinks, believes, and reacts to the game of life. Blurred vision does not discriminate. It can allow unwanted thoughts to take over and set the individual on a path that is not demonstrating a "Beautiful Expression of Life". Everything starts and ends in the mind therefore, the life scripts of your mind (way of thinking) needs to be accountable to living life more abundantly and loving yourself. This premise is crucial as one navigates life's relationships of spirituality, family, vocation, and leisure.

Martin Luther King once said, “You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” Throughout this journey of life, often times we are faced with obstacles that can lead to feelings of overwhelm, stress, and worry. Some stairs might feel crooked and some might feel broken, and asking for guidance on navigating our staircases can feel daunting and vulnerable. However, in doing so, I assure you are taking the most important first step toward gaining greater perspective of your “staircase” and maintaining your emotional wellness.
Having been in private practice for approximately 25 years, as well as having worked in hospital, clinic, and school settings, I 've found people are unique individuals typically involved in a variety of systems including family, friends, school, or work. As a result, I've found it important to focus on individual makeup (nature vs. nurture) and environmental influences. Creating a respectful, warm, engaging atmosphere helps facilitate the therapuetic process. Research has shown that the therapuetic relationship between client and psychologist has proved most valuable in creating healthy and productve changes and an improved quality of life.
