Chris Peters (He/Him)

Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT, EMDR, IFS
 therapist: Chris Peters,
Online in California
Hello! Welcome to my listing. Feeling a part of you that is overwhelmed? Is it making you want to stop and just give up? Hopefully I can help. I specialize in working with individuals and relationships (of all varieties) from tween to adulthood, in the areas of relationship distress, life transitions, self esteem, body image, trauma, depression, anxiety, and LGBTQ related issues. My approach is non-pathologizing, so you are not going to be labeled with a problem that needs to be fixed. Instead, we are going to understand why things are going the way they are and how that, at some point, may have actually helped your system. Then we have a chance to renegotiate it instead of just saying "go away". Knowing something is a challenge is not enough, we need to help the part of you that is carrying the burden to release it. My practice is LGBTQ and gender affirming, sex positive, kink-allied, takes on all relationship types (couples, triads, poly, families, platonic, etc) and body sizes.
