andy orayfig, psyd
in-person: st. louis – clayton
Dr. Andy Orayfig has been practicing psychology for 6 years. He has a PsyD from Regent University with a specialty in Clinical Psychology and Religious/Spiritual issues. He believes that every client brings strengths and resources to the table from which to draw upon, and every client has an internal motivation to change and grow to some degree.
He comes from a community mental health background and connects with the value of accessible, affordable healthcare for those who need it. He operates from a cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, mindfulness, and trauma informed perspective, depending on the client’s need. For example, a client may be working on depression and self-esteem but have a trauma history that informs how presenting issues are discussed and the pace of therapy.
Dr. Orayfig is trained in trauma treatment approaches such as Dr. Van Der Kolk’s methodologies, internal family systems (working with parts of a person), and cognitive processing therapy. He hopes every client leaves feeling empowered to continue making positive changes even after therapy ends. When not working, Dr. Orayfig enjoys playing with his daughter, playing with his dog, playing guitar, reading, listening to music or podcasts, or just relaxing.
