Orie's interests lie in the field of neuropsychology and the interaction between thoughts, emotions and behavior.  Orie uses Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) as her main form of therapeutic style.  Orie specializes in a variety of mental disorders and emotional challenges and accepts both individuals and couples.  She welcomes individuals who suffer from chronic stress, anxiety, emotional regulation challenges, depression, and overall distress.   She especially welcomes couples where she uses an attachment-based approach, including elements of Emotional-Focused Therapy (EFT), to treat marital distress.  Additionally, Orie works with individuals of all ages on gender-related concerns and uses scientific research to provide clarity to such issues while working with clients on their distinct apprehensions.  Orie is highly interested in the struggles and challenges of foster and adoptive parents where she focuses therapy on the special circumstances of the children and assists parents to navigate the hardships of this distinctive relationship. 

Orie believes that each individual, couple, and family are unique and setting goals is a combined process between therapist and client.  Her years of research experience in the field of behavior allow her the flexibility and breadth of knowledge to meet each client where their needs lie and progress is achieved through an appropriate pace.  All therapeutic interventions are supported by evidence-based research.

Orie is currently working towards LPC licensure under the supervision of  Dr.Green, since July 2019.
