Graduate Interns

Didem Koc

I focus on interrelational skills, restoring connections and somatic applications to work with calm clarity and find functionality in the response to unique circumstances.

The genuine responses will come with paying particular attention to your intentions together. I am a bilingual humanistic therapist, providing therapy in English and Turkish to adults and adolescents of all cultures and backgrounds. My practice is mainly structured around emotionally focused attachment theories and Eastern psychological modalities to help identify ingrained problems about transgenerational trauma, cross-cultural patterns, anxiety and personality disorders, and behavioral issues. I worked with different mental health care systems in Turkey and recently in Seattle for years, providing care for substance use and eating disorders in residential and hospital settings.

The cultural competency in the practice has given me the absolute joy of being flexible and vulnerable with my clients. I am an advocate for contributing to equity and accessibility in the mental health field. My passion for mind and body integrity in psychology has led me to begin the Master’s in Existential Psychotherapy and Mental Health Counseling at Seattle University. I am curious to meet with you where you are and work collaboratively to draw interventions for healthy coping skills.

As a relational therapist, I believe that the potential of our work together is rooted in the quality of our therapeutic relationship. My primary role in co-creating this relationship is to provide an environment that fosters personal growth, liberation, and a secure attachment to your authentic self.

Your role is to show up, exactly as you are.
I always practice from a systemic perspective which considers the unique framework of your relationships, both past and present, as well as the broader social and environmental contexts shaping your life. I also integrate a variety of modalities like emotionally-focused, attachment, poly-vagal, and solutions-focused methods. Together, we’ll tailor our work to meet your needs.

Why see an Intern?

Feeling the need to see a therapist, but the cost is prohibitive? Do you wish you could see a mental health professional in a comfortable setting? Anchor Light Therapy Collective’s internship program makes mental healthcare more accessible to all members of the community.  It also provides mentorship and supervision for the next generation of therapists.

Who are our Interns?

Anchor Light Therapy Collective’s interns are master’s level graduate students from Seattle University. These students need clinical internship hours to complete their degree. By partnering together, Anchor Light and Seattle University are able to provide therapy services that benefit both the students and our community.

Things to consider:

Things to keep in mind when scheduling with interns:

  • Scheduling a consultation with one of our interns allows you to have a 20 minute conversation with them to make sure they are a good match, in order to achieve your therapy goals
  • Intern therapy sessions are not infinite. These students will complete their internship after 1 year
  • Interns are supervised by licensed clinicians. They may consult with these supervisors, who may then review your therapy notes
  • Interns cannot bill insurance for therapy sessions. Therefore, if you would like to bill your out-of-network benefits for services please schedule a consultation with our licensed thereapists.

How much does Intern Therapy cost?

Intern Therapy sessions cost $70 and are 50 minutes long.

Individual therapy sessions with a licensed Anchor Light Therapist cost $190 and are 50 minutes long.
