About

Making the decision to start therapy can feel overwhelming, but taking this first step is the most difficult part of it all. My name is Sibel and I am a counselor who believes in leading with empathy and compassion, with the hope of fostering a non-judgmental and productive environment for you. I am a culturally competent counselor with experience working with adults of all ages facing anxiety, depression, eating disorders, LGBTQIA+ related-stress, life transitions and more. Collaboratively, we will work together to create and achieve your goals at a pace that is comfortable for you.
I believe in using a tailored approach to counseling, which consists of using a variety of techniques that fit the needs of yourself as a person. Human beings are complex and multi-faceted, therefore I believe that a counselor’s approach should match that as well.
During sessions, I enjoy incorporating the interests of each client for the activities, homework, and discussions because I believe that it is important to keep the client engaged and at the center of what we are doing at all times. I am here to help you on the journey to achieve your goals and become a happier, healthier version of yourself!
