Dr. El

Aloha, Hello, Hola, Salam, Привет, & こんにちは⠀ ⠀ I'm Dr. Elnur Gajiev—better known by most simply as Dr. El. I am a clinical psychologist, a poet, an educator, a consultant, a coach, and a community collaborator. Essential to each of these roles is my commitment to embracing and empowering all those I encounter towards lives filled with meaning, purpose, connection, growth, and love. In my approach, I draw inspiration from many sources—from the martial arts and mindful movement practices to experiences in academia and senior leadership contexts, to the creative and expressive arts and, of course, the potent healing of mother nature and the great outdoors. I deeply believe that fostering an integration of empirically-efficacious practices and principles with those unique strengths that live innately within each of us is what catalyzes truly meaningful, impactful, and sustainable growth. And so, I offer my expertise and guidance to help connect individuals, collectives, communities, and organizations to their highest values as we navigate the inevitable crests and troughs of life together with a sense of integrity, flexibility, buoyancy, and a healthy bit of humor. Presently, I am licensed as a Psychologist in the States of Hawai'i and New York, and offer both Individual and Group Telehealth sessions as well as In-Person Retreats throughout the U.S. I thank you for venturing forth as you have and I look forward to connecting with you soon to support and to serve the growth that lies just ahead of us. With all my very best, Dr. El
