Our Team



At some point in our lives, we may feel stuck, lost, and confused.

Sometimes, that state of being is an invitation for us to take actions. And that’s exactly how Arda’s personal transformation journey started, right there, in July 2006.

In the heights of his successful career and happy marriage, Arda started to feel anxious and depressed. He soon realized that he lost his motivation to continue in his finance career, and also felt extremely confused in his marriage. In this dark state, he turned his attention to self-awareness and looked for the underlying reasons of why all of a sudden he felt this emptiness within himself and in his life.

Now, a Life Coach, Reiki and Qigong Master, Author of The Seeker’s Manual, and a Spiritual Mentor to many, Arda has combined all of these tools and methods together in his profound method, called P.O.W.E.R. technique. He feels honored and blessed to have connected with his calling and passion for life.

My passion in life is to support others by sharing techniques and strategies that allow us to have inner peace, confidence, self empowerment and to become problem solvers.

I have a Masters in Educational Counseling and a Pupil Personnel Services Credential.

I'm trained in Restorative Practices and am certified in Reiki.

I've been a school counselor for the last 18 years and now have the pleasure of being able to reach more of the population by joining Rise2Realize.

Let’s take off to new horizons…
