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 and depression, or lead to engaging in an addictive substance or behavior. 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.

Message to clients

Embracing the power of vulnerability is an act of strength, not weakness. In the confidential space of therapy, I offer a non-judgmental environment where your unique experiences and emotions are honored. Whether facing challenges with addiction and the accompanying guilt and shame, anxiety about the future, or navigating the daily complexities of today's world, together, we can unpack these concerns.

Seeking support is a courageous step towards personal growth and resilience. I invite you to explore the therapeutic journey, where we can work collaboratively to cultivate insight, resilience, and well-being. You don't have to face it alone; your journey towards self-discovery begins here.
