Professional statement

Peter Stieglmayr is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in New York, NY. Peter enjoys working with adults who struggle to cope with the enormous stressors that they face in their daily lives. These stressors include relationship conflicts, pressure to achieve at work, and constant fear of not being enough. Many of Peter’s clients struggle with self-criticism, which looks like believing that they aren’t worth love, comfort, or success. Sometimes, these harmful negative thoughts can turn into mental health conditions like anxiety or depression. Peter helps clients unwind these thought patterns and explore the reasons behind their beliefs.

Peter utilizes several therapy modalities in his work with clients, however first spends several sessions getting to know his clients. He asks them about their backgrounds, support networks, and their current struggles. Through these conversations, he builds strong rapport with each client in the form of trust. From there, he teaches elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and psychodynamic therapy. Clients practice effective coping skills to use when they begin to engage with negative thoughts or feelings. They grow their feelings of confidence and self-efficacy, with Peter celebrating their progress along the way. He does so in a relaxed, down-to-earth environment that is free of judgment.

Peter earned a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Fordham University. He is a credentialed alcohol and substance abuse counselor and a certified trauma professional. He has extensive experience working in community mental health in New York City and is passionate about providing accessible mental health services to all, no matter their life situation.
