Curated to cultivate your dreams to life.

Psychologist, Poet, Educator

Aloha, Hello, Hola, Ola, Salam

I’m Dr. Elnur Gajiev—better known by most simply as Dr. El. I am a psychologist, a poet, an educator, and a facilitator of connection, empowerment, belonging, and growth.

I weave together poetry, writing, & storytelling in my counseling approach so we may compose and live into the visions that are most aligned with our highest values

As a coach, I draw inspiration from many sources—from the martial arts & mindful movement to the healing power of nature and the arts. I believe in blending best practices with individualized support as we navigate the inevitable crests and troughs of life with integrity, intentionality, flexibility, and a healthy bit of humor.

As a consultant, I offer my expertise and guidance in making mental, emotional, and holistic health as accessible, acceptable, and appealing as possible for all people. 

I’m presently licensed as a Psychologist in the States of Hawai’i and New York, and offer coaching, consulting, and speaking sessions domestically and internationally. If you’re interested in learning more and working together, please reach out below.
