Elnur Gajiev, PsyD

Psychologist       Poet       Educator


 Hi there,

I’m Dr. Elnur Gajiev—better known by most as Dr. El, or simply as El.

I am a psychologist, a poet, and an educator. 

I serve by providing online counseling services, coaching, and consultation to individuals and collectives.

I weave together poetry, art, mindfulness, movement, and neuroscience in my approach to facilitate reflection, connection, empowerment, and growth.

I believe in cultivating the unique wisdoms within each of us so that we may move through life's peaks and valleys with a sense of integrity, intentionality, flexibility, and love.

I also believe in making mental & holistic health more accessible, acceptable, and appealing for all. 

And, I love poetry — a lot. I've found that it can catalyze and sustain truly beautiful transformations.

If this all sounds like a good fit for you, let's connect and explore just what we can create together.

Thank you kindly,

Dr. El

In addition to online counseling services, poetry can serve as a looking glass, a mirror, a window, or a mosaic of our inner worlds. Poetry holds the power to unlock and transform our understandings, our actions, and our ways of being in our lives. As a poet and a psychologist, the poetic influence is integral in the transformative work that I share in with clients.



"I began working with Dr. El at an extremely difficult time in my life. What I found in Dr. El is someone safe who I could reflect into. He helped me find stillness and gently nudged me to turn inward and learn from my own reflections. He patiently nurtured and inspired a new practice for me in creative writing that has become an incredibly potent tool. I appreciate his expansive curiosity and his reflections that tend to make poetry of my stories. Our talks have catalyzed some of my biggest personal transformations, and I attribute that to his skills in attentive, nuanced listening and his loving, supportive presence."
