Elvan Okaygun, M.S. & LMFT-A
Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern in Florida, M.S.
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate in North Carolina

Hello! Here at Beyond-Counseling, I provide short and long-term therapy to individuals and couples and families who seek help individually or as a couple in Florida and North Carolina. As a relational therapist, I bring trauma-informed, insight-oriented perspective while my clients improve connection and communication. My past experience includes working with multinational companies in the printing and publishing industry, Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at American Intercontinental University, Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Florida International University and Master's in Family Therapy at Nova Southeastern University. My cross-cultural perspective emphasizes comprehensive well-being ensuring inclusivity and respect. I offer EMDRIA approved EMDR therapy to those impacted by trauma in addition to utilizing Gottman and EFT modalities for couples to help my clients improve connection and communication. My clients report gaining insight, feeling empowered and having more options in life.

Keeping up with the crazy pace of life, dealing the stresses of relationships, health, and work can throw you out of balance. I am here to help you bring stability back in to your life by working with you to uncover your strengths already present within you, but lost in the chaos. In a safe and supportive environment, I aim to guide you look at past and present experiences from different perspectives and create the shift you need.

Having a cross-cultural perspective guides my practice to emphasize comprehensive well-being ensuring inclusivity and respect. My systemic training and life experiences help me stay curious about how your past experiences influence your relationships today. So, when I work with individuals, couples and families, I pay attention to their language, family dynamics and value structures. I believe my clients are resourceful, skillful and with the guidance they want, are capable of attaining the goals they desire. My clients describe me as kind, compassionate, and they feel easy to open up. Embark on a transformative journey where your unique story is honored. I invite you to a collaboration dedicated to your growth, authenticity and well-being. Please reach out to me for a free consultation. My services are available in English and Turkish, in-person or through Tele-health.
