FIRST SESSION

In the first session, we will address your concerns and discuss therapy goals. I will explain the ethical frame of my work. The relationship between the therapist and the client is the best indicator of the success in therapy. Therefore, this session is free of charge and it is an opportunity for you to assess whether your therapist is a good match for your personality.

I incorporate humanistic approach into various modalities based on the individual's needs in therapy. I  encourage transparent communication, mutual trust, and facilitate non-judgemental, warm and caring environment in my practice. 

TESTIMONIALS

              “Yaprak has guided me through very tight life situations, helped me to identify issues from my past and tackle them, gave me strength to make very difficult decisions, and finally enabled me to develop and grow as a person. She created safe space for me, motivated me, supported me and allowing me to truly be myself. I can list a number of specific real life improvements that came into my life thanks to her and significantly increased the quality of my life. I am talking about behavioral improvements I have been dealing with since childhood, but also increased satisfaction of my relationships, better fitting carrier path, new friends, more fulfilling lifestyle, or healthier self-image. 

                I have worked with Yaprak in different phases of my life. I started as a college student needing help with stress management, came back fresh of the grand school needing to a relationship dilemma, and again years later as a professional in a personal crisis. Yaprak has always helped me to manage the issue I came with, but also helped me to identify side factors that I haven’t seen before. Interestingly, she can make this extra step even though we come from very different cultures. 

                 Another thing I like about her is that she genuinely wants her clients to succeed and learn how to function on their own without having to be in therapy forever. To explain, she creates a schedule for a specific number of sessions, which defines our common target. I believe this approach motivates me to make the best of my sessions and stay focused. Most importantly, though, this approach teaches me how to keep going with my development even after the sessions have finished. 

                 Before I met Yaprak I tried 2 other therapists, but Yaprak was far the best one.  Thanks to Yaprak I have managed crises, found courage to make scary life changes and put my priorities in order. That is why she is always the one therapist I turn to.”
