  • Psychotherapy for
    Healing & Recovery

    “In a society that has everything to gain from our numbness, what does it mean to risk ourselves on feeling? And feeling deeply and honestly. Emotional truthtelling is a liberation practice.”
    – Cole Arthur Riley

    I specialize in providing psychotherapy to individuals and groups with a focus on improving their relational and emotional health—the relationship with themselves and others for a better quality of life.

    Are you overwhelmed by your emotions?

    Does it feel like you are stuck in old relationship patterns?

    Are you afraid your past trauma will define your life?

    Have you tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and realized you need help from someone else?

    If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’ve taken a tremendous first step towards healing. I know seeking help can be hard. You may have been debating seeking help for months or years, but I’m so glad you have taken the courageous step of being here.

    Together we can co-create a therapeutic relationship that feels safe whereby you can better manage your emotional experience and uncover valuable inner resources to help you face and transform your challenges. Whether you’re struggling with depression, life transitions, or relationship issues, it is important that you know you don’t have to be alone in this journey.

    I understand no two individuals are the same, and I tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand the root cause of your struggles and address them in a way that helps you get closer to the life you want.

    If you’re ready to work towards the life you want, contact me today and let’s see if we might be a good fit.

    About Jihan Eley

    I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist.

    Doing the work myself through my own self-care, therapy and clinical supervision, and helping support others along their journey is incredibly rewarding and truly an honor. I believe the work we do to help fulfill our greatest potential and continuously evolve and grow is the greatest gift we can give to ourselves.

    Seeking help and support through therapy can feel a bit awkward or scary at first, but you will find that it can be a safe, nonjudgmental space where you can explore the places where you get stuck, gain insight from patterns in your behavior and make the changes necessary to have the life you desire.
