As a therapist, I want to encourage others to reach out and experience the benefits of therapy. My therapeutic style is rooted in the belief that people are intrinsically valued and are deserving of fundamental human connection; to be seen, to be heard, and to be understood. These fundamental values hold the framework in how I work with the individual. I enjoy working with Asian American individuals who may have conflict with immigrant parents due to cultural and generational differences. Individuals who struggle with self-identity, and reconciling cultural issues and family dynamics.

Everyone has the potential for growth, healing, and self-discovery. In my career I have been fortunate to work with individuals, couples, and families from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. I have witnessed the resilience that each person has and how providing support can help people channel their unique strengths, resources, and insights. I aim to create a safe and supportive environment that empowers those I work with to explore their emotions and experiences, and to work towards developing greater self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-confidence.

Hi! My name is Peter Carnini (he, him, his), and I'm a licensed psychotherapist providing direct, interactive, authentic counseling and psychotherapy for gay, queer, and bisexual men in the San Francisco Bay Area. Counseling and psychotherapy are all about intentionally creating change, and it can be a profoundly empowering experience. Unfortunately, when we're struggling and need help, it can be difficult to know where to turn or what questions to ask, and far too many people end up picking a therapist based only on a referral, or from a list of names provided by an insurance company, or based on how many degrees a therapist has.

I’m thrilled to work with anyone feeling called towards expanding what’s already working, identifying and addressing what’s not, and increasing their capacity for compassion with self and others along the way. I'm a particularly good match for clients who bring a willingness to think and act creatively, are process oriented, and have a sense of humor and a desire to play.

You may, for example, be baffled as to why the same relational problems are repeating themselves. Or you may be wondering why you don't seem to be able to achieve your work goals. Sometimes these challenges are impossible to resolve on our own and we need professional assistance. As a seasoned psychotherapist I bring over 30 years of experience working with clients who struggled with a range of emotional difficulties.

I meet with individuals, couples, and families to help them overcome areas of emotional and relational difficulties. I have an active, open way of working and am curious, engaged, honest, and direct. I take people's need for change very seriously, and am an advocate for finding ways to help people live with greater depth, satisfaction, and choice. While this can involve diligence, resilience, and perseverance, play and creativity are also integral in the process.

I am especially passionate about treating eating disorders. I see clients of varying age groups with a particular focus on adolescents, transitional age youth and young adults. Changing one's behaviors and psychological states is a process and I aim to meet clients where they are at in terms of their readiness for change. In addition to specific graduate training and many years working at Stanford Health's inpatient eating disorder unit, I also have lived experience dealing with disordered eating, and find that my own recovery journey benefits clients and serves as a reminder that recovery is attainable.

I have specialized in two areas.  The first involves the treatment of loss, grief, trauma and the  anxiety disorders that sometimes accompany these events. With a new perspective, most people find it easier to incorporate new coping skills.  This can help you work through your feelings and losses. The second area of specialty is women's health, especially during pregnancy and the postpartum period of life. Having a newborn and the adjustment to mothering brings on many challenges. I work with women to help them cope with the changes to themselves, their bodies as well as their relationships.
