Peter Chirinos, MA, LPC, NCC, DCC, Counselor in Arlington
I've been working in the behavioral health field since 1994. I have experience in working with a wide range of problems with couples, men and women. I am a professional coach and counselor with an expert focus in couple therapy and human sexuality. Services are unique compared to most practicing professionals in that it incorporates various mainstream clinical best practices with depth psychological approaches which lead to understanding conscious and unconscious forces contributing to long held, frustrating patterns.
I'm a professional coach, trainer/educator and psychotherapist specializing in working with men and couples. Professional coaching services focus on optimizing personal and professional relationships which lead to a sense of purpose and meaning. Services are provided in-person and online using a HIPAA/HITECH compliant video system.
I'm honored by my clients' ability to trust me in helping them work through deeply personal and professional challenges. Sessions are dynamic as I am open, affirming, interactive and support clients in clarifying and actualizing their personal and professional goals. Find out more at
