More about me
Years in Practice: 12
Hello friends, my name is Orin and I am so grateful to be doing the work that I love. I am from Central California, born and raised, so I know the In-n-Out menu by heart, flip-flops are a wardrobe essential, and eating outdoors was the norm way before the pandemic. I am known for wearing colorful tie-dye shirts, because I love the symbolism of peace, love, and understanding. Those are the ideals that I try to embody.
I am driven by a desire to help others meet themselves with love and understanding, wherever they are in life. This is what gives me fulfillment. I accomplish this objective by collaboratively working with clients to establish a mindfulness lifestyle, focused on kindness, acceptance, respect for others, positive-states-of-mind, inner-peace, and love. In a world filled with constant distractions, demands, and stresses, it becomes clear that mindfulness provides needed focus, clarity, and (ultimately) fulfillment and happiness. Mental health services should be laser-focused on helping a client foster a way of life that can lead to greater peace, wisdom, and joy.
Life is full of so many challenges – everyone goes through some sort of difficulty over the course of their time on earth. There are important skills and concepts, which we can consistently apply to our everyday life, for improved personal insight and habits/behaviors. I teach my clients skills and concepts based on empirically proven forms of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), including Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP). I have had special training in all these evidence-based modes of therapy.
Scientific studies have confirmed that practicing mindfulness regularly allows you to begin to change the way that you experience life. As a direct result your brain is less stressed, focuses better, is less prone to automatic responses, becomes more resilient to future challenges, and becomes more efficient in regulating emotions. Your body also becomes less tense and improved at fighting disease. These factors help to improve relationships and to become more engaged in work/school. You may very well experience greater levels of happiness and peace in your life by living with mindfulness.
My education has consistently been geared toward my goal of humbly understanding the human experience. My undergraduate (BA) degree in psychology was completed at California State University, Fresno. I gained my master's degree in Counseling Psychology at National University, Fresno Campus. I have been licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist, since 2011. My credentials and granted by the state of California.
I have worked, as a clinician, in addiction/recovery settings, in community-based family mental health programs, in foster-care services, in group-home clinical services, as a child therapist, and as a crisis co-responder/clinician going out with police to address crisis situations. Prior to licensure I held over 20+ years of human-service work experience. In all these capacities, I have been dedicated to creating and maintaining an atmosphere of respect and acceptance.
I am looking forward to working with you.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
