    Meet Jihan Eley

    I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist.

    I am passion about working with people who want to:

    • Improve their quality of life
    • Increase their self-awareness and learn to work with difficult emotions
    • Learn to manage and cope with depression, anxiety and past trauma
    • Learn how to be more mindful, present and cope with stress
    • Identify ‘blindspots’ in relationships and heal from relational trauma
    • Unpack family of origin issues and their impact on their life
    • Cultivate self-acceptance & self-compassion as inner resources
    • Commit to the therapeutic process and make an investment in themselves

    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 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. I have found Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) 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.
