Therapeutic Style:

I think of myself as an eclectic therapist, pulling from a variety of therapeutic orientations including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, solution-focused therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy just to name a few. I strongly value active listening and consider it vital to encouraging healing with my students. Working with people from marginalized backgrounds is a passion of mine as it gives me the opportunity to provide insight and expand upon students’ understanding of systemic barriers that may contribute to their adverse mental and emotional health experiences. I believe that it is important to understand what is in our control and how to pour our energy and strengths into that work in order to promote a healthy sense of being well-adjusted.

Supervision Style:

My supervision style is collaborative. I like to connect with my supervisee based on their stage of clinical development so that we can appropriately and effectively build clinical skills and competence in a way that is not overwhelming. Supervising is a privilege and I am humbled by the vulnerability that supervisees trust me with in this area of clinical work

Professional Interests:

I enjoy working with people who are struggling with identity formation. It is a privilege to sit with students throughout their formative college years and help them to better understand how their identities and lived experiences intersect to impact society and the world at large. I also find deep fulfillment in helping students of color process through race related traumas.

ODI Scholars can begin to explore mental health support services by scheduling a phone screening with CCS. Choose the option of “ODI Scholar” when signing up in order to see Peter’s availability for a phone screening.

Groups and Liaison Roles:

As an Embedded Therapist in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, I will extend CCS services to students who come from a multitude of diverse backgrounds including: LGBTQ+ identifying, racial minority, disabled and neurodiverse lived realities. I also facilitate the process group ‘You Good Man?’ for Black male identified students.

Educational Background:
