Professional statement

Therapy is most powerful when there is respect, honesty, and acceptance as you and your therapist can explore your strengths and challenges together. Peter is committed to providing a space each session where you feel you can process and express yourself freely without fear of judgment.

Coming from a background in religious studies and philosophy, Peter's approach to therapy focuses on trust and unconditional acceptance. The therapeutic experience includes exploring the ways you create and define meaning in your life and how you can find a sense of belonging in the world.

Peter's style is client-centered and exploratory, meaning that you will help direct the process. He may integrate approaches like CBT and mindfulness exercises as tools to improve self-awareness and grounding in the present moment. Examining the relationship between your thoughts, emotions and behavioral patterns will help guide your work together in order to cultivate healing and change.

Peter's goal is to join you in building a shared vision of restorative growth and a sense of belonging and connectedness in the world.

Message to clients

Who am I? What am I doing with my life? Why am I having such a hard time? Many of my clients are searching for their place in the world and struggling with big and small questions alike. They might be exploring themselves and their spirituality, or they might be having trouble coping with anxiety or handling relationship issues. My belief is that all questions- large and small- are worth exploring thoughtfully. My goal is to help clients gain a deeper sense of insight and purpose while doing so.

My primary role in working with clients is as a reflective listener. I believe that humans are uniquely capable of finding meaning in and through times of suffering. It's my job to identify and develop the strengths my clients may not see in themselves, and empower them to be their own catalysts for change.

Many people feel lost in the chaos of the world. However, with the right motivation and support, though, you can rediscover the richness of life and find your place in it all.
