Therapist Spotlight Peter Fashho MA, LPC

What do you specialize in? 

I’d say my specialty is working with clients struggling with a negative view of self. If that’s from depression or anxiety or some other factor, I think I do well with working with people that have negative self-talk.

What do you think is important about your role as a therapist?

I think it is important, as a therapist, to care about every individual that comes into your office. To see them as a holistic person and not just the diagnosis because without doing that I don’t think you can truly heal.

How do you help people, in your opinion?

I think I do a good job of helping people by reflecting back to them a true picture of themselves. I try to be an empathetic mirror, so people can get to see themselves with different eyes.

What is something you wish people knew about your specialty, or about therapy in general?

Therapy and therapists don’t have to be scary. Mental health is just like any other type of health, it is important to work at it. Therapy is what you make it and a good therapist can be the person you need to get you to your goals.

Name an influential person or experience in your life.

I experienced some trauma in my life that lead me on this path of helping people. I had some amazing people that worked with me and I made it my life goal to be that person for someone else.
