About Me

I believe that each and every individuals has the tools to make their life better and it is my job as a therapist to help my clients learn how to use those tools and so each client can help themselves. I have worked with a very diverse population and pride myself in being truly understanding of all people and all lifestyles.

I like focusing on a client's strength's and and getting to know a client fully. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, the LGBTQ community, relationship issues, multicultural issues, religious and anti-religious issues, issues of race and feminist issues. I am a very open therapist that believes each client deserves a positive ear to talk to.

I also believe in reality therapy. If something in your life is not working for you we are going to talk about it and try and figure out how we can develop new and better reactions to different situations.

Peter is great. He helps me to keep in mind that a lot of the ways I feel, and the ways that I think, are actually quite normal!

Peter is thoughtful and insightful. I have been able to talk to him about things that I haven’t been able to talk to anyone else about. I feel like we’re on the same page about a lot of important things.

I’ve only met with Peter a few times but he has already made me feel heard, understands me and he does a good job helping me collect my thoughts and work through them when I get stuck in the process. I feel SO comfortable talking to him and am thankful I matched with a therapist like him!

Written by M.E. on Jul 23, 2019 after therapy with Peter for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and anger management

It's refreshing being able to talk to someone who can help me break down situations that bring me anxiety and giving me tools to develop an inner conversation that will eventually help me de-escalate situations on my own. Peter is really easy to talk to, and has a way to simplify my words into something less intimidating. Thank you, Peter!

He’s been great for me so far.

Peter was not the first counsellor I worked with and I was about to give up with this app, but I tried once more and got Peter as a match and it has been very helpful ever since. I love that I get resources to read as well as insight from him - this allows me to also learn what to look for online so even when Peter isn't helping me I can more easily try and help myself.

Written by L.I. on Jul 30, 2018 after therapy with Peter for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, eating, and self esteem

Peter is always there for me with a professional yet fresh point of view on things. I’m very easily hurt by words, but Peter has never said anything that would make me feel bad or worthless. I trust him a lot and I strongly recommend anyone to trust him too, and just let him help you, because he can definitely do that. Peter is not only an amazing professional, but also a great person as well. He has helped me a lot and I’m very thankful I got to work with him!

Written by L.A. on Jun 22, 2018 after therapy with Peter for 2 months on issues concerning relationship, family, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

I consider it a real treat and gift that I was partnered with Peter when I signed up 3 months ago. Peter is both a wonderfully patient and mindful listener, and also is able to help break down difficult concepts into easy-to-understand pieces. He is timely, and responsive, and also really, really, easy to chat with. I came to Peter with a lot of trauma and feeling very broken, and we were able to set some goals and do some work so that I now not only feel whole and less angry/sad/confused but energized about living and thriving in my life again. Peter gets 6 out of 5 stars from me. Such a lovely and gifted human being.
