My name is Ari Peck and I received my Master’s in Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh in 2021. I’ve previously worked in an intensive outpatient unit with clients with depression and other mood disorders.
I use a multi-modal approach, working collaboratively with clients and using a diverse set of techniques to help manage mood, self-esteem, and life adjustments. These methods include creating strategies to manage difficult relationships, exploring one’s under-met needs, and challenging unhelpful beliefs about oneself. I am particularly interested in working with clients who are neurodiverse, LGBTQ+, disabled, or otherwise facing obstacles to self-actualization.
I believe that people deserve a safe and supportive space within which to learn about themselves. My goal is to help clients deepen their self-knowledge, empowering them to make choices that reflect their values and create healthier relationships within their communities.
I believe that all people are connected through relationships to other people and institutions. These connections are often unbalanced in terms of influence, resources, and safety. I promise to be aware of these imbalances in my therapy practice and to respect the diverse identities, beliefs, backgrounds, and decisions of my clients. I promise to honor the autonomy of my clients and the inherent worth of all people.
