Elif Angel Raynor, M.I.B.A., M.S., L.M.H.C.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
If you are suffering from depression or anxiety, please search no more. I strive to help you to find your happiness and peace. I offer unique techniques that are blended with arts and technology. I have a great understanding of diverse cultures, religions, and family dynamics. Whether you are dealing with depression, or anxiety, or need help with your academic, career, or business choices, I am here for you. I have a master’s degree in forensic psychology, a master’s degree in international business, and a master’s degree in mental health counseling.
I practice a client-centered approach that offers you a gentle, welcoming, and safe place to explore your goals. I believe everybody in life deserves to live happily. I also empower my clients for better academic and business choices.
I speak Turkish and English and I am very familiar with Islamic, Catholic, and Buddhist beliefs. I am experienced in counseling immigrants and second-generation problems with immigration. I am an immigrant myself. I have lived in the United States since 1994.
I am very friendly and my sessions are very calm. My office is decorated with the warmest welcome when my clients walk in and right away they verbalize that it is very peaceful. At the end of sessions if a client agrees we do a brief breathing session and meditation. There is always calming music in the background.
I am very sensitive to cultural backgrounds. I treat all my clients within their cultural values. That means nobody can hear anything offensive from me. I practice Ahimsa which means no harm in Buddhist belief.
My sessions are always educational. I also teach psychology courses at a state college. It is my pleasure to educate my clients about human psychology, diagnoses, treatments, etc. This way my clients understand and play a greater role in their treatment.
I believe I have great analytical skills and I possess excellent communication skills. I am observant and show great patience with my clients. Therefore all my clients tell me that I have excellent people skills. My focus is always on problem-solving and doing it with top-notch trustworthiness.
Dr.Justin Nepa, DO
I’m Dr. Justin Nepa, a board-certified psychiatrist located in the Davie / Fort Lauderdale Area, specializing in a combination of medication management and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy based psycho-therapeutic approaches for adults and adolescents suffering from mental health ailments.
I take a holistic approach to psychiatric treatment, recognizing the many factors that contribute to symptoms. I take the time with each client to discuss their goals and unique strengths and challenges. I believe that the practice of Psychiatry should go beyond just the relief of symptoms and should include approaches that help each client reach their full potential. I also have experience with helping patients get off of medications that they have been experiencing unwanted side effects.
Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, and graduated University of Tennessee – Knoxville with a degree in Psychology and Biochemistry & Molecular Biology. I went to medical school at Lincoln Memorial University – DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine and then completed psychiatry residency training at University Hospital and Medical Center in Tarmac, Florida.
