My mission is to impact a generation by empowering individuals to identify the internal blocks that hinder them from discovering their true authentic self and living a fulfilled, purposeful life.
My goal in therapy is to help you remove the road blocks so that you can fulfill your greater purpose, live and enjoy the life that you want.
I am Caroline Kurkcuoglu. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I serve the Porter Ranch, Northridge and the surrounding communities. I have been practicing since 1994, providing treatment for individuals, couples, teen and families.
My specialty is working with trauma originating from your early childhood and adolescence, which might be negatively interfering in your life today. My goal in treatment is improving relationships with others as well as yourself. I create the space in a therapeutic relationship for your healing. Most of us have suffered some kind of loss in one way or the other, which leaves us feeling depressed, anxious, overwhelmed. The place I hold for you will allow you unfold the feelings of self doubt, self criticism, and fear in order for you to understand how these feelings were rooted in you originally.
I love what I do, I am very passionate about my work. I feel very honored to be part of your journey and to be given the chance to listen to your own story. I strongly believe and trust that the therapeutic relationship that we will be creating together will allow for healing of your very deep and personal pain while allowing you to unfold and discover your true authentic self.
I am from Istanbul, Turkey, which also makes me a very unique and different individual. I understand the challenges in transition from one culture to another. I also have studied and researched the effects of intergenerational trauma passed from one generation to another through immigration, genocide as I myself am a product of both. I speak Armenian and Turkish fluently, which also allows me to provide therapy in those languages.
