What Are The Benefits of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Whether we fight our demons from the past, our stressors from the present, or our fears from the future, it is not always easy to cope alone. It is not easy to seek help either. It takes courage to seek support, but in the end, therapy turns out to be a helpful tool for many of us. If you are not sure that you can deal with your stressors by yourself, professional guidance with evidence-based techniques might help. Here’s a short video created by Psych Hub about how Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) works in our brain.

EMDR Therapy

EMDR therapy is a structured approach for treating trauma and trauma-related symptoms by reprocessing trauma memory by bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements); allowing the brain naturally complete the process and move forward to heal.


It’s easy to get caught up being busy with work and day-to-day life. Taking time out to focus on our experiences of the moment is crucial for a lived life.

About Me

I'm an experienced Turkish/English speaking clinical psychologist with the ability to work collaboratively and effectively with children, adolescents, and young adults. It is essential for me to connect individuals from different backgrounds and build trusting relationships by developing trust and gaining commitment. I value and respect intercultural differences. In my practice, I focus on mental, emotional, and social well-being of my clients. I mostly work with anxiety, trauma, self-confidence, school adjustment, life-work balance, motivation, parenting, and relationship issues. I provide psycho-education workshops for children and families as well as individual support in order to assist them to reach their full potential within a therapeutic setting. Looking for new opportunities where I can put my experience and skills to work, contributing to better lives. In my free time, I love writing scripts and short stories, traveling, learning, and experiencing something new. I enjoy following up on current research and technology to keep my practice updated.

“I would like to thank Mrs. Akdag for introducing me to EMDR therapy. I learned how my body stored trauma and did something great for myself by releasing it."
“Theraplay games were a great way of reconnecting with my son. I never knew that I was allowed to have fun when I play with him.”
