Welcome!
Welcome to OC mental Health, the website of Dr. Arlene C. O'Connor, clinical psychologist licensed in the state of California and practicing in South Orange County. I am glad you are here!


When your feelings, thoughts, fears and relationships are so overwhelming and painful that talking to a friend is not enough, you may need the help of a specialist. Someone who is trained, experienced and skilled, and can provide you with a safe place in which you can let yourself be vulnerable, in order to understand the root of your emotional turmoil and initiate change.


Choosing the right psychotherapist is an important step, but it can also be a difficult one, especially when all you have to go by is a directory or a list of names from the insurance company.  

In my office, you will find an unhurried pace, where your relationship with me is respected and valued. I welcome you to look through this website and learn more about my practice, philosophy, background, training, services, and how I may serve you, a family member or a friend.

Please call me at (949) 916-0340 for a no cost phone consultation. 



You have nothing to lose, and a life to reclaim.
