I have worked extensively with adolescents from ages 10 to 18 in both group and individual sessions. I have experience with violence prevention, depression, anxiety and couples counseling. I really enjoy working with youth and bring and honest and empathetic approach. One of the biggest challenges to our youth today is the idea of autonomy. How does a teen affect their own life when they still need to live under the rule of their parents, teachers and other authority figures. How does a youth make the biggest decisions of their life at an age where they barely have the autonomy to drive their own car. Being a youth is challenging and hard come and chat with me and let's work on making it better.

he’s super helpful, empathetic, and i feel like he understands me. he also remembers what i’m going through and asks me if I wanna talk about it each week
He's very helpful and understanding.
Peter was very helpful to my son, he supported him and gave him helpful advice when he needed it. I was extremely helpful for my son to have someone to talk to other than his parents with an outside point of view. He was timely in his responses to me and to our son. We plan on keeping him for my son as long as he needs it.
I feel like he understands and that he is willing to help you no matter what. He will reach out to you an ask how things are going which mean a lot to me
He has been very patient and understanding in listening to me. I really needed that. I needed to feel like I've truly been heard. Peter does that for me.
It's refreshing being able to talk to someone who can help me break down situations that bring me anxiety and giving me tools to develop an inner conversation that will eventually help me de-escalate situations on my own. Peter is really easy to talk to, and has a way to simplify my words into something less intimidating. Thank you, Peter!
Peter has been a great support for me during a chaotic time in my life. I can tell that he actually cares about helping me navigate difficult situations. I’m grateful for his knowledge & understanding.
He’s been great for me so far.
Peter was not the first counsellor I worked with and I was about to give up with this app, but I tried once more and got Peter as a match and it has been very helpful ever since. I love that I get resources to read as well as insight from him - this allows me to also learn what to look for online so even when Peter isn't helping me I can more easily try and help myself.
Peter has been a Godsend for me. He listens and helps and for that, I am so thankful.
Peter is always there for me with a professional yet fresh point of view on things. I’m very easily hurt by words, but Peter has never said anything that would make me feel bad or worthless. I trust him a lot and I strongly recommend anyone to trust him too, and just let him help you, because he can definitely do that. Peter is not only an amazing professional, but also a great person as well. He has helped me a lot and I’m very thankful I got to work with him!
I consider it a real treat and gift that I was partnered with Peter when I signed up 3 months ago. Peter is both a wonderfully patient and mindful listener, and also is able to help break down difficult concepts into easy-to-understand pieces. He is timely, and responsive, and also really, really, easy to chat with. I came to Peter with a lot of trauma and feeling very broken, and we were able to set some goals and do some work so that I now not only feel whole and less angry/sad/confused but energized about living and thriving in my life again. Peter gets 6 out of 5 stars from me. Such a lovely and gifted human being.
Very respectful and compassionate. Doesn’t forget about me.
Peter helped me get through a rough period.
Peter Agostino always responds quickly, in an understanding and empathic manner. He has great advice to cope with my situation and is excellent at helping me.
He’s been always understand and great. Easy to talk to. Which is very important. Don’t feel like I was ever judged. Would recommend him highly.
I really needed someone to give me affirmation and someone who sees me. Peter is doing a great job helping me feel seen, not alone, and able to find my way through the muck!
Peter has been a godsend. He has really met me where I’m at and has been patient but consistent. He checks in when I’ve been absent for awhile and he has encouraged new therapeutic methods that I have never tried.
Peter was very responsive to chat messages during our short time working together. He was kind and tried to be very helpful. Unfortunately, he cancelled at the last minute for our very first live session together.
Peter is a great professional. He has lead me to learn so much more about myself.
Peter provides insightful and thought provoking feedback!
Peter is super great. He always answer in a short matter of time to my messages.
Peter is a great therapist. He is truly professional and cares about his patients. Absolutely recommend to anyone that needs a listening ear or second opinion.
Peter has been very helpful and present when I've needed him. I strongly recommend him if you need somebody to hear what you have to say.
