Peter Sharpe

(MA, LPC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado with ten years experience working with adults, teens, and families. I have my Masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Naropa University, a program which blends western psychology with eastern traditions such as mindfulness practice. I have helped people with issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, and stress-management. In addition to my work as a counselor, I founded and co-led a musical group that played and traveled the world for several years. I am particularly interested in working with artists and musicians (or aspiring artists of any sort), as I have personally experienced and worked through some of the struggles that go with those pursuits. I am open and interested in working with people of all backgrounds, ages, races, sexual orientation, etc...

My approach is compassionate, non-judgmental, genuine, and client-centered. I believe that healing starts with self-compassion and understanding of your personal history. I will work with you to define your goals and then help you as an ally to meet those goals. I believe that the solutions to problems often can be found in our own experience, and that a therapist's role is to help uncover that inner wisdom while providing support along the way.

It can be hard to reach out for help. I'm so glad that you took the first step and I am really excited to work with you on your goals! I look forward to getting to know you and being there to provide support along the way.

Written by M.O. on Apr 14, 2019 after counseling with Peter for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and bipolar disorder

Very patient and empathetic, his experience shows. Somehow he doesn't seem distant despite the fact that he is in a completely different location.

Peter is very attentive. Is a good listener and really cares. He also provides ways of coping with stress that are helpful.

Peter is excellent and I have no regrets about seeking his support. The only reason I did not provide "Extremely satisfied" responses and an "8" for recommendations is simply that I know the online modality works better for some than others and that needs to be taken into account.

Peter is great. Honest and responsive and his support is felt strongly.

Peter Sharpe has been an excellent, down to earth, unbiased perspective for me. When I needed direction, he was able to have me see my issue in a clear and logical way and helped me work through them, especially how to help find what I needed to help myself.

Free of judgement and full of support, he always keeps in touch and is fast to respond to any problems.

A great friend and resource for those in needs. Always able to listen and then give his input. He is very intuitive and quick to understand one’s needs and habits. He has been a great person and a huge part of my support system. The best psychologist I’ve ever had.
