More about me

Licensing: LMFT
Years in Practice: 12
State: CA

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.

I have only been working with Orin for a few weeks, but he is always attentive and engaged with the challenges that I bring up in sessions. Orin listens, reflectively inquires, and then suggests tailored practices to help me toward my goals. He is clearly experienced, compassionate, and professional.

I have worked with Orin for over a year, and found his therapeutic approach to be compassionate, attentive, and always focused on presenting me tools and ways of seeing things that will make a difference for me in the "now" and in the "long run". I would recommend Orin to anyone looking for an experienced and compassionate therapist.

Great l

I’ve been with Orin for almost two years and he really was a special send to help save my life. Before Orin I was lost in bad relationships one after another, he helped me navigate through my past trauma to help find more meaningful relationships. I was riddled with anxiety and had been muted so long I didn’t know how to have healthy communication and boundaries. Life still brings challenges but with his help I am able to navigate and live a more fulfilling life where my needs are a priority. I even applied for my dream job and am loving every day of it! I recommend BetterHelp to everyone I meet and refer Orin to people all the time. I’m in such gratitude.

R.E.·Aug 06, 2021


Orin is an amazing therapist. When I first came to him I was lost , couldn’t sleep, riddled with anxiety and was just barely getting through life. Now I’m doing better everyday and always on a path of healing. I have tools that help me get through the struggles of living this life. I was also from a family that doesn’t believe in therapy and have encouraged some of my siblings too attend therapy too. I truly believe Orin is helping break that cycle. I’m so grateful for therapists like Orin that really want to help their patients.

K.A.·Jul 16, 2021


Orin is wonderful and compassionate. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Orin has helped me understand myself in so many ways. I really enjoy his personality, and he's like a really good friend that you can tell anything to and not be judged. I feel free to say anything that's on my mind, and Orin is an excellent listener and understands where I'm coming from. Orin really wants to help. He's genuinely concerned and puts his heart in it. He has an excellent memory, and is real good at reminding me of things we've discussed in the past (I may forget things; he'll remind me). I've been doing sessions with Orin for quite some time (I've taken some breaks in between).

I had almost given up on finding a compatible counsellor till I met Orin. I am very grateful for having found him. His guidance was crucial in helping me with my family issues.

Orin has one of those personalities that immediately makes you feel at ease. He's provided me with a lot of tools for managing my anxiety, and I really appreciate his advocacy for meditation.

I feel much more confident in handling my own anxieties and issues, and am so thankful for being paired with him!

Orin has been a calming presence and a dependable calibrator for the voice inside my head. He does an excellent job of asking open-ended and non-judgemental questions to find solutions to my underlying issues and keep me focused on what's important. He gives advice when needed, with plenty of compassion and understanding, and not before he's come to a working knowledge of the specific details of the problem I'm having. I'm grateful that I found Orin and I would recommend his counseling to anyone who needs someone to listen attentively

M.I.·Dec 03, 2020


Orin is a great great listener and I am very happy I chose him as my current therapist. I feel like I can simply express myself and have him give me the right guidance with our sessions. Analogies are always on point and his expertise says a lot about the people he’s helped! 10/10 would recommend (:

H.E.·Dec 01, 2020


Orin has been a wonderful resource in helping me receive the appropriate counseling and support that I need. He has such a calming presence and is very knowledgeable in providing you tools and tips for how to help you in your current life situations. He's non-judgmental and incredibly supportive. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for someone that you can trust and gain useful insight from.

C.E.·Oct 26, 2020


Orin is thoughtful and kind, he has helped but things into perspective for me.

S.C.·Oct 05, 2020


Orin is a wonderful counselor and I consider myself lucky to have been matched with him on the first go. From the short time we were able to connect, I am able to say that I would definitely recommend him to anyone dealing with anxiety and stress. Right off the bat, speaking to Orin is like speaking to an old friend. His voice is calming, he is very understanding and open, and makes it very easy to open up to him. I know the tools he has given me will immensely help my day to day life and mindset overall.

J.A.·Sep 24, 2020


Thanks for all the support and kindness. You listen and you stay in touch. I hope you have someone like yourself in your life to talk to. Always thought therapy was not for me “who needs that stuff - you have a problem you fix it, it’s all in your head”. Thanks so much for the help Orin. I’ll get there yet, with your help.

A.L.·Sep 04, 2020
