Peter Rivkees is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, National Certified Counselor & Board Certified Coach
Counselor in Clermont, FL
I provide a non-judgmental perspective intended to help you make sense of the complex emotions and feelings that may be confusing. Together, we consider and explore your personal situation in a way that leads to fresh understanding. The hope is that these new perspectives will inspire you to change your thoughts and behaviors.
When working with clients I believe that it’s important to look at the whole context of life – family, work, finances, physical health – as well as broader currents in society – the pressures to be successful, or to achieve a certain lifestyle – in order to understand how problems have formed.
Everyone has a unique story and unique needs. We pride ourselves on offering the most flexible solutions tailored to you. From flexible hours to determining the best course of treatment, we work with you every step of the way. At Clermont Behavioral Health, we take the time necessary to fully understand what prompted you to reach out for help and support. We work with the individual and family to develop a wellness plan that is realistic and mutually agreed upon that will lead to a successful experience.
After twenty-five years of experience in business, Peter decided to address a need he saw in the field and provide mental health support to men, their families, and fellow business professionals. He believes there is a gap in this industry that has not been addressed and is confident he is uniquely qualified to address the issues and concerns of men and the business professional population.
At some point in our lives, we will be touched by someone we know or a loved one with a substance addiction or behavioral addiction. Addiction to alcohol or prescription medications is just the tip of the iceberg for the many addictive behaviors that we face today. Behavioral addictions such as work, gambling, exercise; emotional eating, Internet pornography, sex, shopping and video games are all very serious and can impact daily functioning and quality of life for the addict and the family system. Many times addictions are rooted in dealing with emotional issues through unhealthy behaviors. We can help you identify and take responsibility for your behavior to regain control of your life. Stress and anxiety from work spill over into a need to “let off some steam,” while stress and anxiety from substance abuse or addictive behaviors cycle around and impact one’s work life.
We can help identify if there is a need to be concerned and help establish a healthy relationship with technology. With the expected resistance, we can help both you and your child develop an appreciation for the positive and detrimental aspects of technology.
