Peter Chirinos, MA, LPC, NCC, DCC, Counselor in Arlington
I've been working in the behavioral health field since 1994. As a generalist I bring extensive experience to helping clients from all walks of life overcome varied challenges. Clients are typically drawn to my interactive and supportive style, while insightful feedback assists them in seeing solutions to long standing problems. 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 yet frustrating patterns.
I am a coach and counselor with an expertise in atypical sexual interests and mixed orientation relationships. I am co-author of 'Becoming a Kink Aware Therapist', the first textbook providing guidance to professional counselors working with clients who practice BDSM. Becoming a Kink Aware Therapist is a Routledge publication.
I focus on understanding and assisting in profound and longstanding personal and professional transformation while providing a supportive therapeutic environment for clients. Sessions are personable, dynamic, affirming and interactive. Find out more at CapitalCounselingServices.com.
