Reviews of Orenstein Solutions

Dr. Orenstein and her colleagues at Orenstein Solutions have been excellent trainers and consultants; they share years of expertise in a variety of areas in an engaging and organized manner. I am continually impressed by this group.Kristen Trolenberg, LCSW

Susan Orenstein, PhD is a licensed psychologist and director of Orenstein Solutions; I never hesitate referring clients to Orenstein Solutions because the entire staff is attentive, gentle, professional and compassionate. Mental health and relationship challenges are approached and treated with respect in a clean, comfortable and private environment.Geralin Thomas, Metropolitan Organizing, Professional Organizer on A&E’s Hoarders

I’m one of the co-organizers for a local event for moms of kids with neuro-behavioral special needs, the Happy Mama Conference and Retreat. Dr. Orenstein gave a presentation about letting go of mama guilt to our moms, all gathered for respite/educational/networking/& community building, and she was wonderful! She gave us practical tools to let go of our negative self-talk and buoyed us up for our hard work as warrior mamas! At the end of our event we ask folks for feedback about the venue, the speakers, the food, the process, etc., and Susan got the highest marks of all our speakers! She was accessible, thoughtful, and empathetic.Adrienne Bashista, Organizer for Happy Mama’s Retreat

Thank goodness for Orenstein Solutions! They are a practice that genuinely and fully cares about their clients. Their therapists are skilled in several areas and are always willing to go the extra mile. Susan is the backbone of the practice and, unlike many therapists, she is results oriented. She’s not looking for the paycheck, she’s looking to help, educate and empower her clients so to grow and move on.Tracey Gritz, Business Productivity Consultant
