I was graduated from Kadıköy Anadolu High School in 1991 and completed my psychology major at Boğaziçi University in 1996 as an Honor Graduate student.
I earned my Clinical Psychologist degree at Okan University in 2013. My graduation project "Literature Review of the Metacognitive Model of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder" was published in  Current Approaches in Psychiatry Journal in 2015.
I continue to my PhD on Clinical Psychology at Okan University.
During my graduate school, I conducted individual psychotherapy sessions at Okan University and Istanbul University Cerrahpaşa Hospital Psychiatry Department, under Prof. Perin Yolaç’s supervision. My psychotherapeutic approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
As a volunteered therapist I conducted psychotherapy sessions to university students at Boğaziçi University between September 2013-June 2015. Also I worked as a clinical psychologist in private clinics during September 2013 to January 2016.  I have been working at Face to Face Therapy Center since January 2016.
Between the periods of September 2013-May 2014 and September 2014-May 2015 I had been supervised by Dr. Emel Stroup in her CBT supervision group. I have been attending to Dr. Stroup’s consultation group since September 2015.
As a part time lecturer I have been supervising Okan University Clinical Psychology graduate students since September 2015. And still I am supervising students of Okan University Clinical Psychology Master Programme.
