Aysem’s Perspective

Most of us carry around more than our share of worries. We worry about our romantic lives, our kids, and our parents. We worry about our work, our finances, and our health. Unchecked and unexamined, our worries can drain our energy and keep us from realizing our goals.

This is where counseling can help. If you have reached a place where the stress is too high, and you are ready to do something different to adapt and thrive, I’d be happy to meet with you.

As a relationship therapist, I help individuals and couples:

  • Build healthy communication and assertiveness skills
  • Actively maintain relationship health while managing the stressors of parenthood
  • Achieve emotional balance and fulfillment through mindfulness
  • Re-invent a relationship after an affair
  • Manage differences in sexual desire
  • Manage the impact of familial and cultural legacies on relationship health

For clients who are preparing for a commitment, I provide a 5-Session Premarital Counseling Series

For parents, I offer a free workshop called Relationship Tune-Up. The next workshop will take place on May 24th, 2018 from 6-7:30 pm in Edina. The maximum capacity is 24 participants, so register today!

Aysem’s Background

I grew-up in Montana. My family immigrated to Bozeman from a small town in Turkey when I was in elementary school. It was quite an adventure for us – bidding farewell to the Aegean sea and embracing the majestic Bridger mountains. 

I came to Minnesota to attend graduate school, and met my husband in the Twin Cities. We now make our home here with our two children and giant dog Bella. If you were to ask my family and friends to describe me, I imagine they would use words like kind, extraverted, and empathetic. 

I feel like a student for life. I have a Ph.D. in Family Social Science from the University of Minnesota and an M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of San Diego. I have post-graduate training in Mindfulness, the Gottman Method of Couple Therapy, and Clinical Hypnosis. I have taught about family and relationship health at the University of Minnesota and St. Mary’s University of Minnesota, and am a member of the Minnesota Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.

Since joining Rekindle Counseling, I have continued to seek out new and innovative trainings to keep up with emerging research in areas like neuroscience, and hope to keep learning for as long as possible. For more information about my training and activities, please see my resume.
