"...You and I are on a team, working together to build the sort of life you want to live..."

Hi, I'm Peter. There’s a chance that if you’re reading this right now, you, or someone close to you, is going through a challenging time. It’s an unfortunate reality that experiencing pain, loss, and struggle in life seems to come with the territory of being a human. While these experiences often leave us feeling isolated and stuck, you do not have to work through these issues alone. I’m here to help.

My approach to your treatment is one grounded in a radical sense of acceptance, validation, and equality. You and I are on a team, working together to build the sort of life you want to live. Unsurprisingly, it goes without saying that this process isn’t easy. If your mind is anything like mine, it sometimes has a tendency to get caught up in a web of difficult thoughts and feelings, which can make this work tricky. The time we spend together will be dedicated to practicing skills to unhook from and defuse these difficult thoughts and sensations as they show up and learn to approach them from a place of acceptance and self-compassion. Building these skills takes a great deal of courage and can be uncomfortable, but know that I’ll be with you every step of the way. We’re in this together.
My style of providing individual therapy is informed through a lens of trauma-focused acceptance and commitment therapy (TFACT) and compassion-focused therapy (CFT). As I alluded to above, this is an involved, experiential process that centers on our teamwork and meeting you where you’re at. Naturally, this process looks and unfolds differently for everyone. However, at the core of all of our work will be the ongoing practice of cultivating a new sense of mindful awareness, kind curiosity, and compassion.
In addition to TFACT and CFT, I’ve found myself especially drawn to psychedelic integration work and hope to factor its varying models into my therapeutic approach.
