My Approach to Helping
If you are suffering from depression or anxiety, please search no more. I strive to help you to find your happiness and peace. I offer unique techniques that are blended with arts and technology. I have a great understanding of diverse cultures, religions, and family dynamics. Whether you are dealing with depression, anxiety, or need help with your academic, career or business choices, I am here for you. I have a master's degree in forensic psychology, a master's degree in international business, and a master's degree in mental health counseling.
I practice a client-centered approach which offers you a gentle, welcoming and safe place to explore your goals. I believe everybody in life deserves to live happily. I also empower my clients for better academic and business choices.
I speak Turkish and English and I am very familiar with Islamic, Catholic and Buddhist beliefs. I am experienced in counseling with immigrants and second generation problems in immigration. I am an immigrant myself. I have lived in the United States since 1994.
I am very friendly and my sessions are very calm. My office is decorated with the warmest welcome where my clients walk in and right away they verbalize that it is very peaceful. At the end of sessions if a client agrees we do a brief breathing session and meditation. There is always a calming music in the background.
I am very sensitive to cultural backgrounds. I treat all my clients within their cultural values. That means nobody can hear anything offensive from me. I practice Ahimsa which means no harm in Buddhist belief.
My sessions are always educational. I also teach psychology courses at a state college. It is my pleasure to educate my clients about human psychology, diagnoses, treatments, etc. This way my clients understand and play a greater role in their treatment.
I believe I have great analytical skills and I possess excellent communication skills. I am observational and show great patience with my clients. Therefore all my clients tell me that I have excellent people skills. My focus is always in problem solving and doing it with top notch trustworthiness.
Here are some reviews I received from my clients:
"Thank you Raynor Consulting for your understanding and for teaching me tools on how to be mindful. I have been able to learn how to embrace and understand emotions and self manage anxiety and self-doubt (feelings I as an artist experience all the time!). Thank you." Bianca K.
"Angel has counseled me in many areas of my personal struggles. She never brings focus to her own experience, she always remains focused on what I need at that time. She is truly compassionate and honestly wants nothing more than for you to succeed and find your own happiness. Her guidance helps me figure out how to deconstruct an issue into more manageable pieces so it no longer remains an insurmountable problem. Angel teaches you how to work through things so you learn how to deal with them without her walking you through them."
