Elnur Gajiev, PsyD

Creative Psychologist       Educator       Wellness & Empowerment Coach


 Hi there,

I'm Dr. Elnur Gajiev — or simply, Dr. El. I'm a Creative Psychologist, Educator, and Wellness & Empowerment Coach, supporting purpose, presence, well-being, & growth. 

I am passionate about cultivating the wisdom within each of us by weaving together psychology with mindfulness, movement, neuroscience, coaching, and the creative arts.
This integration fosters deeper insights, key connections, & empowering behavior shifts.

I believe in making mental & holistic health accessible, accepting, and appealing for all.
As a Fulbright Scholar, I've been involved in numerous projects & initiatives that champion communally uplifting causes through culturally reverent means: from developing innovative, wellness 
programs for socially-dedicated organizations to supporting the integration of the creative & healing arts into therapeutic, community-based programming.

I offer individual counseling, coaching, & consulting, as well as lead workshops, seminars, talks, courses, & retreats. I also founded the Creative Psychology Symposium: an annual event dedicated to integrating the creative arts with innovative psychological approaches.

If you're seeking to grow toward greater intentionality & true expression of your creative power in this life, I'm here for you. Let's connect & discover what we can create together.




I offer three distinct services to support your growth & evolution:

In addition to the services above, I also compose a weekly newsletter—Weaving Wisdoms, a collection of wisdoms I have gathered, integrated, & crafted from inspired exchanges shared with incredible people & places all around this world.

Our weekly newsletter aims to weave these moments together to offer you reflective & nurturing wisdoms to hold, delight in, consider, & carry into the days to come.



"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."
