Dr. Peter M. Rivera

Marriage and Family Therapist

I am dedicated to providing evidence-based therapy for individuals, couples, and families, ensuring it is culturally sensitive and fosters healing and restoration. My passion lies in supporting every person on their journey toward health and wholeness. I advocate for justice and reconciliation, and celebrate every step of progress, no matter how small.

SERVICES PROVIDED

TELEHEALTH

Can't make it to my office? I offer a convenient option to fit meetings into your daily schedule, and  are currently holding online telehealth video or phone sessions with clients.

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

Life is full of complex challenges and opportunities. We help people identify areas of growth by providing a safe and supportive space to process what’s going on in their lives. We assist clients in getting “unstuck” in the way they think about their problems and collaborate to find possible solutions to the challenges they face.

CHILD THERAPY

Working with children brings me immense joy. I specialize in supporting children and teens of diverse backgrounds facing various challenges such as trauma, abuse, family transitions, and behavioral or relational issues. Building trust and respect with children and their families is at the heart of my approach, fostering an environment where growth and healing can thrive.

COUPLES THERAPY

Couples navigate unique challenges, and there's no one-size-fits-all solution. I specialize in helping couples delve beyond surface issues to uncover the root of conflicts. My approach provides personalized support and practical tools to effectively manage the emotional and practical complexities of sharing life together.

FAMILY THERAPY

Families are both complex and a precious gift. My approach focuses on creating a safe and respectful environment where everyone feels heard and valued. I will carefully observe family dynamics to uncover underlying patterns contributing to challenges. My services include evaluating generational influences, offering boundary coaching, and fostering healthier family dynamics.

CLINICAL SUPERVISION

I provide clinicians with supervision rooted in a strength-based bio-psycho-social-spiritual systems approach. My goal is to create a supportive environment that encourages growth, creativity, and meaningful self-reflection. I offer a space where supervisees can engage in genuine interactions and cultivate their professional skills.

MULTICULTURAL ASSESSMENT

As a licensed Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) Administrator, I specialize in guiding individuals and communities to enhance intercultural awareness and navigate diverse experiences more effectively. The IDI, available in 17 languages, is a trusted online questionnaire developed by Dr. Mitchell Hammer, designed to provide valuable insights within just 15 minutes.

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

Life presents us with both challenges and opportunities. I offer a safe and supportive environment where you can explore and grow. Together, we'll work to identify areas for personal development and help you navigate through whatever you're facing. My goal is to help you break free from feeling stuck, explore new perspectives, and collaborate on finding effective solutions to your challenges.

SESSIONS

WHAT TO EXPECT

In our initial sessions, your therapist will prioritize understanding you and your concerns. Building a strong therapeutic alliance is key—it forms the foundation for effective therapy. We'll also conduct a thorough biological, psychological, social, and spiritual assessment to gain a comprehensive understanding of how these aspects influence your life and the challenges you're facing.
