Get in touch with Dr. Burcin Ogrenir about life coaching, counseling and psychologist issues! We are waiting for you! After my higher education, which started with a Psychology degree from Middle East Technical University, continued with master’s and doctorate education in the fields of education and psychology in the USA. During the past years, I continue my career as a teacher, psychological counselor, administrator, researcher and most recently academician in the same fields.
