He received his Bachelor of Science in Honors Psychology and Master of Art in Counseling from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He is a member of the American Counseling Association and the Alabama Counseling Association.
Peter spent nearly a decade designing security systems for correctional facilities prior to his calling to become a counselor, and rather than working to keep people locked-up, he desired to help others free themselves from the chains that kept them from achieving success. Affected by his own personal life experiences, Peter has developed a passion for working with children and adolescents, especially at-risk youth, to overcome the behavioral and emotional obstacles to mental stability and healthy development. His working experience as a mental health professional, youth director, spiritual advisor, and school guidance counselor has further molded his interests in assisting others in obtaining a balance of body, soul, and mind.
Peter works with children, adolescents, adults, and couples to develop the necessary skills for effective communication, positive interactions, healthy relationships, and practical methods of coping and stress management that are essential to achieving and maintaining mental wellness and stability. Peter also works with parents to develop effective parenting techniques and communication skills to present a united parenting style and has helped many families move through difficult situations that prevent positive parent/child/sibling relationships and achieve a healthier family structure.
