What Services Do I Provide?

 

PSYCHOTHERAPY
  • Individual Psychotherapy (in office or online)
  • Couples Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Short- & Long-term Psychotherapy

 I offer psychotherapeutic and other clinical services under the term Mutual Psychotherapy.

Why “Mutual”?

For two reasons:

  1. The psychotherapy method which I was taught, and myself teach and practice, primarily leans on the “relational psychoanalysis” approach. The central focus of this approach is the therapeutic relationship which is co-responsively created by the therapist-client dyad.
  2. I am not alone. I am in a wide psychotherapist network of hundreds of my colleagues, many of whom are former students.Thus even if I am for any reason unable to work with someone who comes to me for psychotherapy, I am able to help them find the most appropriate therapist for their circumstances.

I have been working as a psychotherapist since 1992.

 

 ONLINE THERAPY

Due to the increased technological possibilities and geographic circulation of people brought by our era, the field of psychotherapy is seeing progressively more online activity. While it may not be appropriate for everyone, and though it brings certain extra considerations and conditions which must be diligently observed, online therapy can be a very valuable option for those who seek therapy but cannot find a fitting therapist in their area. Thus geographic limitations are erased, for instance, for those who live in smaller communities without appropriate therapists, for immigrants who can’t find local therapists who speak their preferred languages, or for those who cannot afford the local going rates.

While there are various formats for online therapy, the only ones which I find meaningful and use are real-time video sessions over applications like Skype. 

 

COUPLES THERAPY

Couples therapy is a form of therapy that helps two people take their relationship into hand, try to fix or remove the relationship’s hardships, and if it is determined that the hardships are above such a level, develop an appropriate separation process. Just as married or romantic couples can participate in this therapy, so too can pairings such as parent-child, friends, or work colleagues.

 

PSYCHOLOGICAL COUNSELING

(IN OFFICE OR ONLINE)

Whereas the psychotherapy that makes up the bulk of my professional work concerns long-term, in-depth work on their psychological difficulties and often personality structure, psychological counseling covers shorter-term, more surface-level consulting services about how to deal with various life difficulties.

 

CLINICAL SUPERVISION

(IN OFFICE OR ONLINE)

During the first 5-10 years of their professional practice, and as needed afterwards, every psychotherapist must receive supervision from a more experienced therapist with certain qualifications.

I have been providing clinical supervision under the framework of relational psychoanalytic therapy and integrative therapy in New York and Istanbul since 2002.

 

RESEARCH/PROJECT CONSULTATION

(IN OFFICE OR ONLINE)

I offer consulting services for mental health research or service projects.

 

INSTITUTIONAL CONSULTATION IN THE AREAS OF EDUCATION AND MENTAL HEALTH

(IN OFFICE OR ONLINE)

I offer consulting services for the establishment of new institutions offering clinical services or education in the field of mental health (clinical psychology and psychotherapy), or for established institutions undergoing difficulties.
