Thomas Peterson, LPCA, NCC, CCMHC, BC-TMH

As a person-centered counselor, I am non-judgmental in my approach, and I acknowledge the client’s experience in a respectful and empathetic manner to foster self-discovery. I have a preference for utilizing many of the counseling techniques within cognitive behavioral therapy because I believe that although individuals will undoubtedly experience hardship and difficulty within their lives, I feel that problems with emotions and behaviors are many times a result of how one thinks and feels about a situation.

 

I take great pride in consistently maintaining an understanding of the critical roles that a client’s culture, identity, ethnicity, race, gender, and other aspects of diversity play in the counseling process. In practice, I have counseled adults and children with mental health issues including, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, trauma, adjustment disorders, substance use, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, physical and sexual abuse, eating disorders, personality disorders, as well as disruptive, impulse-control, and conduct disorders. Because I believe that counseling is not a “one-size-fits-all” process, I will always maintain awareness of the uniqueness of a client’s situation and adapt my method to suit his or her needs.
