Dr. Sinem Akay-Sullivan, PHD
I am a Registered Play Therapist and Certified Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist. I have extensive training and experience working with children and teenagers. I can help your child with a variety of problems such as anger, oppositional behaviors, anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, and adoption related issues. I believe in working with parents and teachers as a team to help your child as effectively as possible. I often do phone consultations with teachers at no charge to gather detailed information about children's behaviors at school and give teachers additional support.

Care Philosophy

I am here to help you and your family to reach your goals towards a happier life! I believe in your child's resilience and strength to recover from even the most difficult life events. Even though I have training and experience working with all age groups, I am specialized in working with children and teenagers. I also work with parents on improving their parenting skills and discipline methods, as well as helping them with their concerns and questions related to adoption.

I will be happy to help your family to reach your goals to recover from emotional and behavioral issues. Give me a call for a free phone consultation today to get more information.
