Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Peterson "My practice is a judgment-free and emotionally safe space, where compassion, respect, and unconditional positive support is central to my therapeutic approach.  I provide couples & marriage counseling, as well as individual counseling, psychiatric referrals, and psychological services for the Kansas City area.  If you are reading these words then perhaps you are feeling frustrated, anxious, inadequate, or alone.  Or maybe you are struggling to build a healthy relationship, dealing with a recent break-up, suffering from anxiety, or simply wanting to learn how to get more out of your connections with others.  My approach is humanistic with an emphasis on deriving existential or contextual meaning from all life events and developing the skill of mindfulness."
