Fernando Estupinian, LPC

Bi-Lingual and Bi-Cultural Therapist

Arise Albany

My name is Fernando Estupinian and I am a bilingual and bicultural therapist. I used to live in Northwest Arkansas for several years. I moved to the state of Oregon in 2018. I am passionate about justice, equity, and equality. I strongly believe that taking care of our well-being is an important part of our lives; therefore, I do like engaging in self-care activities to maintain a good balance in my life.

Can I help you ?

I offered psychotherapeutic services to adolescents 14+ adults. 

I do help clients to overcome, manage, and reduce their symptoms from a variety of issues. 

The areas of focus are the following: 

Anxiety, depression, grief & loss,

life changes, existential crisis, adjustment disorders, 

trauma and PTSD,

 OCD, self-esteem, bullying, stress, 

thinking disorders, and relationship issues.


My approach Life is a journey full of choices. The outcomes of those choices define who we are. We all experience an existential crisis at some point in our lives, which impacts our well-being. I help individuals to accept and to embrace unpleasant feelings, increase awareness of freedom of choices, encourage healthy responsibility, for the outcomes of these choices, and support finding meaning in life.

I support individuals by providing a comfortable, safe, and non-judgmental environment as a starting point to change unhealthy habits in their lives. I explore and acknowledge individuals’ symptoms and feelings, and work together to find solutions and/or answers to problems that have been affecting their well-being. 

Therapeutic Focus

My therapeutic approaches are Existentialism and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Existentialism primarily focuses on death, freedom, existential isolation, and meaninglessness. I also utilized the CBT approach and techniques to address unhealthy thoughts, unhealthy beliefs, unhealthy attitudes, and unhealthy behaviors. 


I have been working in the mental health field since 2018. I have worked with diverse populations and backgrounds in the past, including adolescents, families, couples, and adults; to address life and emotional issues, as well as unhealthy patterns during the therapeutic process.

I have a M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Arkansas, CACREP Accredited Program. I have a B. A. in Psychology, also from the University of Arkansas. I have an A. A. & A.
