Seyma Calihman's bio

This content was provided by Seyma Calihman "I was and raised and educated in New York City and taught Chemistry for several years before deciding to become a psychotherapist. I received my Social Work degree from The University of Texas Graduate School of Social Work at Arlington. Soon after arriving in Texas, I met the Texas who stole my heart and still has it. We live outside of Austin-proper with a succession of rescue dog-pairs, who travel with us everywhere. I am an enthusiastic gardener and make beaded jewelry. I have loved minerals since childhood. I also love books and good friends. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Seyma Calihman "More than 40 years of study and practice allow me to help you define and accomplish your goals in a timely manner. To this end, I am an active part of our conversation. I am interested in changes that improve the present and future in recognizable ways. Whenever relevant, I help you explore historical events that have an impact on present feelings and relationships. It is possible to heal early abuse and neglect.

Married almost 40 years, I have learned a great deal about nurturing the good in relationships to keep them alive, meeting inevitable difficulties with resolve and creativity, and using problems as motivation to create a path to deep healing for the couple and the individual. To paraphrase Jack Nicholson, love can make you want to be a better person.

Occasionally I work with an individual or a couple in a relationship beyond repair. If a client decides to end a relationship, we work toward an ending that is respectful of everyone involved. "
