    I have been with Serap for about 8 months now, and I am so thankful to have found her. I have been dealing with the ending of my 15 year marriage and longstanding depression I have struggled with since the age of 12. Serap has been very helpful for my depression and for my continued learning about myself and better ways to cope. It is easy to accept and hear her point of view, and I never feel judged at all (which was an issue with a previous therapist I was seeing). My depression has been stable for about 7 months now. I am less depressed than I have been in about 5 years. I have never taken meds. I am still healing from problems in my youth and upbringing as well as trauma from my past relationship. I look forward to talking or seeing Serap every week. I have found her very helpful and in the past I have never been this happy with a therapist as I am with Serap. I hope to continue with her for the long journey ahead.

    Serap ist die beste Therapeutin. Wir sind eine multikulturelle Familie, die erstes mal nach USA ausgewandert sind. Ich war super verzweifelt wie ich mich hier in USA anpassen würde. Dann habe ich Serap kennengelernt, und hat mein Leben angefangen, wie eine Magie zu ändern. Sie hat nicht nur unsere Ehe gerettet sondern auch der Sinn meines Lebens. Ich war in einem sehr dunkeln Tunneln und habe mein Weg verloren und sie hat mir am Ende des Tunnels das Licht gezeigt und mir wie eine Navigationssystem den Weg gezeigt. Wenn ich sehr Schwierigkeiten und Verzweiflung hatte, war sie immer da für mich. Es ist nicht genug, wie viel ich mich Serap bedanke. Vielen Dank Serap, Du hast total mein Leben geändert und mir mein erwünschtes Leben gegeben. Wenn Sie Serap als Therapeutin auswählen, würden Sie nicht enttäuschen und innerhalb der kurze Zeit die Änderungen in eurem Leben und euren Beziehungen zu spüren.

    Serap is such a compassionate listener, and has a remarkable ability to help me shift my own perspective on the concerns I have. I leave my therapy sessions each time feeling more empowered. I really appreciate how she suggests 'homework' or thought exercises I can do during the week; when I come back to my session, she remembers all the details of what we last discussed, and follows up on the thought exercises. She hasn't been the kind of therapist who just listens without saying anything and takes notes - rather, she listens, takes detailed notes, but also offers me tools for understanding my experiences. She shares aspects of her own lived experience too (with humor!), which makes our conversations feel like those between two friends. I'm so grateful I started working with Serap!

    I have been seeing Serap for over 6 months now, and I cannot begin to say how grateful I am to have connected with a therapist like her! She is very warm yet respectful. I have benefitted immensely from her guidance, in managing and reducing my anxiety through various techniques, such as mindfulness, meditation, journaling and CBT. She has gone out of her way to help me find various ways to make my life and my relationships with my family, spouse and colleagues much more fulfilling. No medications, just through mindfulness, understanding oneself better, and by living in the moment. It would not be an understatement to say that she is a blessing in our lives. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, self-doubt, imposter syndrome or relationship issues, do yourself a favor and talk to her. Her methods may take some time, but they are very, very effective. Although she is a thorough professional, you will also end up making a great friend!

    I can't thank Serap enough for the difference she has made in my life, so far….She is the reason I am able to function better in Grad School at Harvard. I was able to find my inner strength through working with Serap and have continued to grow into a more confident person. She was extremely helpful with providing Psychoeducation; teaching me DBT and CBT skills to regulate my negative self talk and control my obsessive thoughts. I can manage my Perfectionism & OCD by using all the tools she has given me. Serap used IFS/Internal Family Systems and challenged me to face my childhood trauma and set me on my feet to go forward into life.

    Serap has been working with me for four months, and had initially been helping me with a heartbreak. She has not only helped me deal with this, but also helped me address issues related to multicultural factors, childhood trauma, and overall self-esteem. She is a highly gifted and talented therapist - very empathic and intuitive. She’s open-minded and very committed to self-growth and knowledge. She cares about her clients, and makes you feel understood and heard.

    Serap has been working with me for four months, and she has given me the emotional tools I need to make drastic, positive changes. I came to her suffering from depression and lacking the skills to identify the root causes of that depression. Her patience, kindness, and ability to push me to examine my life choices with a critical eye have empowered me to make tremendous decisions that have landed me in a place so good, I could not have imagined it the day I walked through her door.

    I started seeing Serap during Covid19. I was hesitant to see a therapist but encouraged by my brother to seek guidance. I am so happy I have met Serap! Knowing that I can connect with her and have her help me seep through the different cobwebs and future struggles is a great relief. I am a young college graduate trying to get into medical school. My parents have always tended to push my brother and I - helicopter/tiger parents. Serap has been extremely patient with me. Many times, I would call in an emergency, crying and stressing out. She easily calmed me down, welcomed me to enjoy using her office to study, and is helping me change the misconceptions that I have grown up knowing. I also have some issues with my temper and reaction to receiving help; Serap is quickly changing my perspective. My mother has joined in on therapy sessions and together with Serap we will better understand each other and grow and navigate this life more calmly.

    I approached Serap after struggling with depression for a long time - in denial and later resisting help. After working with her, I have realized what difference a good therapist can make and that therapy works for real. I am lighter, more positive and see myself on the upward curve to healing. Serap is a genuinely warm and kind person who visibly enjoys her interaction with clients. She is nuanced above all in her process - understands cultural differences, unlocks difficult emotions in thoughtful ways and sees through your limiting behaviors.

    We are an LGBTQ couple and have been having couples therapy sessions with Serap virtually during COVID19. Despite being virtual, Serap has been able to identify specific difficulties, offer insights, and give us work that improves our relationship outside of counseling hours and well after counseling is over. I highly recommend her.
