Announcement icon When in-person sessions are not possible, I am able to provide phone sessions and some video conferencing. Please contact me for details.
I believe the ability to be genuine and create connections with other people are the most important factors in maintaining peace and happiness. I encourage my clients to strive toward this by helping them explore who they are and find the tools they need to evolve into who they want to become. My style is candid and compassionate. I challenge my clients, but I realize that each person comes to the counseling office with different needs, interests, and talents. I approach the treatment of each client with an eclectic perspective based on his or her personal qualities and situations.
I treat clients for many common conditions like anxiety, depression, and relationship issues, but specialize in helping clients find expression. My graduate research was on inhibited grief, and I treat many people for trauma, including women and men who are survivors of sexual abuse. I have been running a Group for Male Survivors since 2008.
I help clients uncover difficult issues at their own pace in a safe, confidential environment. I use whatever resources I can to incorporate into treatment, including creative assignments, writing, etc. Additionally, I have great respect for the humanity of my clients, and I never forget that I am human myself.

Mary Petersen's Groups

Male Survivors of Sexual Assault

This is a safe and confidential place to talk for men who have survived sexual assault in any form - either as children or as adults. If you are a male survivor, please contact Mary to see if you qualify for this therapy group. At first it may seem difficult for a man to be willing to participate, but once they do, most report feeling an overwhelming sense that they are accepted, not alone, and able to find support.
