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. Above all, I am deeply committed to embracing and empowering those I work with towards lives full of meaning, purpose, growth, connection, and love. In my work, I draw inspiration from many sources—ranging from mindfulness, the martial arts, movement and yoga, to executive coaching, planning, and priming, to the creative arts, experiential metaphors, of course, the potent healing of nature. I believe that fostering an integration of effective practices and principles with those strengths that dwell inherent within you, your family, or your organization is what catalyzes truly meaningful and sustainable change. Therefore, I offer my expertise and guidance to help connect individuals, communities, and organizations to their highest values as we navigate together through those inevitable crests and troughs of life 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 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. With all my very best, Dr. El
