My name is Orly, and I am a therapist trained in California and Tel Aviv.

My partner and I moved from Oakland, California to Barcelona for a more relaxed lifestyle, and the opportunity to grow through new cultural experiences.

After having experienced the challenges of moving to a new country, I feel excited and prepared to help others who are going through a similar life transition.

So, what does working with me feel like?

A therapeutic relationship of safety and trust.

In addressing the challenges you face, we’ll bring to light the resources you have always had within.

I provide a space of unconditional acceptance.

I am here to listen, ask, and learn about who you are, without judgment.

I specialise in working with trauma and loss.

Even if we have been scarred by past events, we can do the work to live a more fulfilling life, and end—or diminish—the impacts of trauma and loss.

I hope to help you feel safe, cared for, and empowered.

I bring the values of honesty, authenticity, and acceptance. I am warm, compassionate, and empathetic.

I have an integrative approach.

I offer evidence-based tools from Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), with elements of Humanistic, Positive Psychology, and Mindfulness-based approaches to therapy.

I help adults
and teens 16+

Difficulties that we can work on together include (but are not limited to):

Deep self-exploration, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, emotional imbalance,
major life transitions, migration and living abroad, loneliness, social anxiety,
stress management, divorce, existential questions, attachment issues,
relationship challenges, abuse, worry, self-esteem, family conflict,
dating challenges, bullying, peer pressure, pessimism, desire for growth.

I view trauma as any deeply life-altering
experience or past event that has left psychological scar tissue
and continues to heavily impact a person’s emotions, thoughts,
behaviors, and beliefs about themselves and the world.

I have extensive experience and passion for
working with survivors of relational trauma,
including but not limited to abuse,
sexual abuse/assault, and domestic violence.

I knew that I wanted to be helping people in some way from a very young age.

I had always been deeply empathic and introspective, and understood early on that everyone carries difficult experiences.

When I discovered that I might be able to help people as a therapist, I felt like I had truly found my calling.

I have found therapy to be immensely helpful throughout my own life, and I am honored to be able to provide others with this incredible tool.

How did I realise my calling in life was psychology?


details about me

I am a ceramics artist. I  am constantly humbled by the intricate and challenging process this ancient craft entails.

I love hiking in the mountains and being out in nature. I also love long city walks exploring  Barcelona.

Food is my favourite entry point into a new culture. I believe food brings people together, holds ancestral stories, and is always meant to be shared.
