Ashlee Orr

Ashlee Orr is an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and Associate Professional Clinical Counselor. She has a profound personal connection to firefighters, police officers, and military members. Her grandfather retired as a Master Chief Petty Officer in the Navy, her father-in-law served in the Marine Corps and retired as a Sergeant from LASD, her brother served in the Marine Corps and medically retired as a firefighter, and her husband served in the Marine Corps and is currently serving as a police officer/SWAT member. Ashlee has witnessed firsthand the mental health struggles and stigma that often accompany these professions.

Ashlee's journey into therapy was inspired by these experiences, which drove her to pursue dual master's degrees in psychology and clinical psychology from Pepperdine University. This academic foundation combined with her personal experiences has equipped her with the knowledge and skills necessary to address the unique challenges first responders and military personnel face.

In therapy, Ashlee employs an integrative therapeutic approach that incorporates evidence-based modalities such as EMDR therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and mindfulness techniques. This comprehensive approach allows her to address the complex interplay of trauma, stress, and resilience that characterize the experiences of those in high-stress professions.

Ashlee collaborates closely with her clients, recognizing their resilience and strengths while acknowledging the complexities of their roles. Outside of therapy, she is dedicated to ongoing education and advocacy efforts aimed at improving mental health outcomes for first responders and military members.

By blending personal insight with professional expertise, Ashlee is honored to walk alongside these courageous individuals on their journey toward healing and well-being.
