Orion is really great! I'm lucky to have found a good therapist in the first try. Orion made me feel comfortable and I was able to open up a bit more throughout our appointments. I highly recommend Orion! So thankful!

Orion is easy to talk to and provides good insight to the issues I am trying to address. I appreciate her candor regarding my situation. She doesn’t sugar coat my situation.

Written by A.L. on Jan 12, 2022 after therapy with Orion for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, and adhd

I love them honestly best therapist I’ve had. I’ve never had this many sessions with anyone. Super straight forward, easy to open up to, super chill person. I honestly commend teencounseling.com’s pairing quiz cuts out the bullshit of the traditional intake appointment and calling around.

great all-around

Written by M.I. on Dec 29, 2021 after therapy with Orion for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Orion is great at listening and adapting to our individual situation instead of trying to fit us into something "textbook". Conversations are genuine and sincere. The discussions are such that, after a session ends, my husband and I will continue after we sign off because the lines of good communication are open. Orion balances letting us direct the conversations by what we want to discuss and leading us to meaningful dialogue and enhanced perspective. I always leave the sessions feeling like I can work through very difficult situations and that my feelings are always valid. I highly recommend Orion, especially if you or your partner has difficulty voicing what's in their head or heart. Orion creates an environment that helps make it easier. My husband and I had a previous marriage therapist that we loved and they could not get my husband to speak much, but he has been sharing so much in our sessions with Orion.

Written by J.A. on Dec 28, 2021 after therapy with Orion for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

Orion is fantastic at guiding me in my healing - not pushy with anything I’m not ready to discuss but encourages me to explore my own thought patterns & to learn and grow! HIGHLY recommend!!

Written by K.E. on Dec 12, 2021 after therapy with Orion for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Orion is extremely helpful and is easy to talk to and to open up to and that is a very rare experience. This notion is based solely on trust and I trust him completely. He listens and knows when to step in to help and when to step back and listen. Someone that is always trying to help is a great but someone that knows how to help and most importantly when to help is crucial to any recovery process. He finds your strengths and incorporates them into recovery and doesn’t give a “one fit all” approach. We go through life at our own speed and we need to be kind to ourselves, it sounds so simple and cliche but there is a different between hearing that and realizing that. I am lucky to have him on my side.

Written by T.A. on Dec 08, 2021 after therapy with Orion for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Orion is always there for me and talks me through my anxiety. I’ve been able to gain a new perspective on how I look at situations and the people in my life. It’s been a relief to have someone that’s been so supportive to share with and I feel like I’ve been able to grow a lot in such a short period of time. Thank you, Orion!

It’s a pleasure leaving a review and it’s been a positive change I’ve seen in my relationship ever since Orion stepped in to help. If services are needed in the future I know who to contact, we highly recommend her. She is upfront, honest and not bias one bit.

Orion is great! I got through a lot in my life with the help of Orion's most honest, gentle and supportive counseling. You can depend on Orion to listen deeply and give honest feedback with all of the good vibe and energy behind it. I highly recommend!

Written by D.A. on Mar 29, 2021 after therapy with Orion for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and self esteem

Orion is really great to talk to and knows how to ask the hard hitting questions that give you a better understanding of the situation you feel some type of way about. They create a space where you can speak freely, and in this environment, they're very attentive to what you're saying and how you're saying it. There have been a few times where I asked a question about my feelings, and they showed me that I knew the answer whether I wanted to acknowledge it or not - because I had just said it moments before. Orion is an excellent therapist, and Peter (their cat) makes therapy a little more special.
