    I have seen a number of therapists in my 56 years, and Dr. Jeff Peterson is the best one yet. What’s different? In our first session I felt comfortable sharing things that I never told previous counselors for fear of feeling judged. It felt safe with Jeff. He is nonjudgmental. He is sensitive and empathic — yet simultaneously challenging to help me view situations in a different way. I’m extremely grateful for his knowledge, insights and most of all, his caring demeanor. It’s my safe respite.
