Orion Harris LMFT

Professional Background

Orion Harris completed his masters degree in Counseling Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, CA. He also holds a bachelors degree in religious studies from UC Berkeley.

He brings a broad set of experience and expertise to the integrated medical-behavioral program at My Doctor Medical Group. In addition to private practice psychotherapy, he has served in the Peace Corps in Turkmenistan teaching preventive health care, as a counselor in a residential treatment facility for children in San Francisco, and as a wilderness guide.


Orion weaves together mindfulness based cognitive behavioral techniques, humanistic-existential and depth approaches, tailored to each individual's needs and preferences, with the goal of helping clients bring forth their best self and live with a wider range of possibilities, vitality and freedom.

His therapeutic toolbox includes trauma-informed somatic therapy techniques, expressive art therapy, and group therapy related to pain management, alcohol and substance use disorders, and mental health.  Orion draws on a variety of perspectives, both Eastern and Western, modern and ancient, to support his healing work.

"In my work as a psychotherapist I have witnessed the healing power of the human spirit to find wholeness and meaning amidst life's unpredictable twists and turns. The way is not always clear but through intention and courage one may find growth and the way forward. Whether you are are struck by the unpredictable undercurrent of inner/outer events or are seeking more insight and support in processing difficult emotions, my intention is to provide non-judgmental empathic listening and reflection.

"I draw on Jungian and Archetypal psychologies, which take into consideration the unconscious processes that inform our outer behaviors and perceptions of reality. My work incorporates expressive arts, nature-based, existential, and mindfulness approaches.
