Hello, my name is Pete Martucci and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, currently working in the state of Minnesota. I have been a practicing counselor for 6 years and I have worked in the mental health field for over 10 years. I am currently completing my PhD in Counselor Education with a specialization in crisis and trauma. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Counselor as well as a Disaster Mental Health Counselor and an Approved Clinical Supervisor. I have spent the bulk of my career studying the impact of trauma and how it can direct our thoughts and behaviors. I have worked with individuals across a broad spectrum of mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, panic disorders, personality disorders, mood disorders, relationship difficulties, body image, self-esteem concerns, addiction and other life challenges.
My therapeutic/counseling style is rooted in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. I believe it is an empowering framework that assists clients in recognizing and treating their mental health concerns, by challenging the way we think and how we act on those thoughts. I also will challenge you to move outside of your comfort areas and address those discomforts. In addition to CBT, I practice through a Solution-Focused approach that is helpful in addressing life challenges and stressors. I want you to feel comfortable in our work together and because of that I treat all individuals with respect, kindness and removed of any judgment.
It takes great courage to ask for help and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with you as you move forward on this journey to a healthier life and mind. I believe the work we do together, is a collaborative process and I will assist you to learn, grow, and make positive changes that can result in a more fulfilling life.
I look forward to hearing from you and beginning our work together.

Pete is awesome. He genuinely listens to what I have to say, and is really helpful if I have questions or trouble understanding something. I feel very safe during our sessions. Pete can be very gentle but also challenge me, and do so in a why that makes me feel like I'm gaining ground and really making progress.

Pete has been fantastic at understanding my day to day, being courteous to my brain, and making sure I’m heard. He also pushes back and challenges me to think.

I hate to make this short and sweet, because it would undersell Peter's abilities. To summarize it up, he is amazing at really providing a different perspective, where in the past therapists have really not provided that service. He is right in there to offer a different way of looking at the issue, while knowing the underlying issues, he utilizes that information, when asking for feedback or guiding me to a different way of thinking. Highly recommend Peter.

Pete has been a very welcomed bright spot in my life. He is a great listener but knows how to pick his places to push back or offer his alternate point of view. He is a master of his craft, consistently referencing scholarly concepts on the spot. He really cares about our time together and has helped me make significant progress, opening my eyes to a different way of life. I am lucky to have found him.
