    Meet Jihan Eley

    I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist.

    I am passion about working with people who want to:

    • Commit themselves to their healing and well-being
    • Be their full selves and not embrace their trauma as their identity
    • Heal past relational wounds and not replicate old patterns of behavior
    • Feel supported and live with more ease
    • Cultivate self-acceptance & self-compassion as inner resources

    My Philosophy

    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, work through internal and external messages about your value and worth; and help you practice healthy coping skills and lifestyle changes to reduce stress and anxiety.


    My approach

    My approach to therapy is one that is based upon empathy, compassion, curiosity, authenticity and acceptance. I am an integrative and experiential therapist with a deep interest and curiosity in transforming one’s emotional experience in a way that allows them to embrace their lives in more creative and life-affirming ways.

    I strive to meet my clients with whatever they bring and engage in continuous learning and clinical supervision. I am a Level II AEDP Therapist and an EMDR trained Therapist. I have found Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) essential to my work with my clients as it harnesses the innate capacity and wisdom of the client in a safe, relational container of the therapeutic relationship and cuts through the source of the client’s distress.
