She worked at a training hospital as a psychologist for 15 years until moving to Canada in 2002. Her research interest has focused on parents’ attitudes, family environment and the effects of these factors on children. She has also been interested in the effects of video games on children. She has two published articles about these subjects.
After completing some certificate programs in the field of mental health and community services in Ontario, she launched a project in July, 2013 –a volunteer initiative- called Mental Health Counseling Services for Multicultural Community. The mission of the project was to offer psychological support and counseling to adults, seniors, youth, parents when they have emotional difficulties. This service reached out more than 170 people. And, Filiz provided individual and couple psychotherapy and facilitated some group sessions. People come to this service to seek help for various issues such as Immigration stress, depression, PTSD, addictions, LGBTQ, grieving, generation gap and family issues. Because of insufficient budget and strategic decision of sponsor organization, Filiz had to peter down this project in 2017.
Filiz continues to provide her services through her private practice.
