How is Peter different?

As a coach or consultant

As a sought after consultant and coach Peter is a leading expert in the field of atypical sexualities and counseling/psychotherapy. He is a sought after specialist and speaker in the area of emerging alternative sexual expressions.

His professional services are unique and different than most coaches/consultants in that he combines unique psychotherapeutic approaches and theories (Depth Psychology) to community education and advocacy. This unique approach embeds real sustainable changes in social understanding and acceptance of atypical sexual expressions in various age groups ranging from adolescents through older adults.

various mainstream clinical best practices, like cognitive-behavioral therapy, are integrated with depth psychological approaches to understand conscious and unconscious forces contributing to long held and frustrating patterns within individuals, couples, families and educational systems. Peter

Peter also provides expert consultations and coaching to schools, professionals, and parents on emerging sexual expressions (BDSM, kink, transgender and polyamory [poly-dynamic relationships]). Well-informed and ethical training in this area is lacking professional education. Therefore, his goal is to correct misinformation and change attitudes about atypical sexualities. As a consultant, services focus on maximizing personal and professional growth potential in various contexts (business acumen, career advancement, inter- and intra-personal relationships, etc.).
