Clinical Psychologist
Istanbul, Not Applicable

I earned my Master of Science degree in Clinical Psychology at California State University, Fullerton in 2014. My Master’s thesis was on International students' homesickness and depression associations with mood regulation expectancies, acculturation and attachment. As part of my clinical psychology fieldwork requirement, I conducted individual, family and group psychotherapies with children and adolescents at Western Youth Services in Southern California. After earning my Master of Science degree in Clinical Psychology, I taught Elementary Statistics courses as a part-time lecturer at California State University, Fullerton. In 2015, I worked with traumatized clients diagnosed with substance and alcohol dependence in both individual and group psychotherapy settings at Solid Landings Behavioral Health. In the meantime, I worked at Diamond Family Counseling, where I practiced Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy with couples. My psychotherapy trainings include Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing EMDR I – II (Gerald Puk, Ph.D.), Parent-Child Interaction Therapy PCIT (Carrie Axline-White, Ph.D.), Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, EFT Externship (Sue Johnson, Ph.D.), Compassion Focused Therapy (Paul Gilbert, Ph.D.), Erickson Hypnotherapy Masterclass & Intensives (Jeffrey Zeig, Ph.D.).I have been working as a psychotherapist at Koç University Hospital in Turkey since 2016, where I had the chance to meet Professor Sar and I am willing to do research on the etiology of trauma and dissociation and also hopefully on psychotherapy outcomes.
