About Me

Hello,
I am glad you are reading this. This is the first step toward your change.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Richard Orona, and I can help you obtain the changes you are looking to make.

My belief in Christianity grounds me personally and professionally. The teachings of Christ are as practical and insightful today as they were two thousand years ago. I think that the shared beliefs between a client and a therapist can assist the counseling process and help problem solve using the lessons presented by Scripture.

I have been able to see success in my counseling practice with individuals, families and couples. (Please read the reviews of clients that I have worked with here on this site). I have always enjoyed the process of counseling and the opportunity to help people enhance their lives. I am committed to providing proven and research based counseling services for a wide range of concerns and problems. I have successfully helped people cope with depression, stress and anxiety, pornography addiction, relationship issues and methods to improve self-esteem. My approach incorporates assessing the concern and locating practical strategies to resolve the issue set within God's truth and message for our lives. I am focused on helping the client adopt skills for self-development and maintaining success. I have earned a Master's of Art in Marriage and Family Therapy and a Master's of Science in Psychology with a specialty in Behavioral Medicine.

I can honestly say that this program and more specifically my counselor has changed my life and in truth, saved me. With his advice and support I've been able to leave an abusive relationship and rebuild my life. I feel far more in control of my anxiety and my emotions and in my life thanks to Richard.

Richard is an active listener and asks questions and make sound proposals based on my responses. Caring, honest, yet truthful.
