You may be wondering why your teenager is not engaging with you, acts angry all the time, or complains that no one understands him/her. This may be all too familiar to you as a parent, but maybe he just did not get the professional support to reveal his full potential yet. I can help your teenager to understand his own behaviors and emotions while helping him to discover and use his talents.
It may be hard to ask for help as a parent out of fear of getting your teenager labeled, but therapy is not always about the negatives. I am a strong believer of positive psychology, which means I focus on the strengths and positive sides of my clients instead of labeling them or forcing them to face their weaknesses before they are ready. If you feel stuck, just remember that you do not have to go through difficulties alone. You can be sure that I will be right next to you when you feel alone, I will listen to your worries, fears and make sure you feel understood even if you think nobody wants to hear what you are going through.
My approach helps clients to understand and resolve their conflicts, relationship and family issues while considering their personal experiences and as I strongly believe personal experiences has a huge influence on how we behave, think and solve problems. I see life as mostly unpredictable, but I believe we can take precautions or intervene for the parts of it that we have power. I see people as individuals, who have the ability to use their qualities as long as they are aware of them. I understand that many people have barriers and challenges that prevents them from reaching their full potential. But with guidance and support, I believe people can learn how to deal with these difficulties and overcome them without getting harmed or even if they did, using that experience to prevent future harms. With doing that, individuals can use the same freedom of choice to shape our life in the way we want to live.
I have 7 years of experience in the field where I had chance to work with teenagers, seniors and young adults in different settings both in United States and Turkey. As a person who comes from a different culture, I know how ones’ culture can affect how they perceive themselves and others. That is why I pay extra attention to consider my clients` cultural background.
