  • ·Anxiety and panic conditions

Peter provides a warm, comfortable, and confidential environment where you can discuss your concerns and be understood as together you identify specific goals, talk about the treatment options, and formulate an effective plan.  Therapy should be a collaborative process where you and your therapist work together.  Good psychotherapy for anxiety, depression, and stress-related problems are not just what happens in the therapy session, but what happens in the time between sessions as well.
