Introduction:
Dr. Robbins is the Emergency Room Marital Therapist. What does that mean? Dr. Robbins specializes in bringing couples back from the brink of divorce. The type of therapy needed for those who are seriously considering divorce is very different from your typical marital therapy. It's direct. It's concise. It's active. Having worked with couples for over 30 years, he is well versed with the challenges of changing the course of a wayward marriage. Often, finances are a part of the problem, if not at the core of the problem. In fact, poor financial management has been deemed as the number one cause of divorce by many divorce studies. As a financial advisor, he brings his expertise to these challenges as well. Often, Dr. Robbins is the person couples go to when "all other things have failed."

In addition, Dr. Robbins specializes in working with parents of out-of-control children and teens. When parents are bombarded with conflicting advice about how to deal with defiant kids, Dr. Robbins cuts through with tried and effective tools to bring peace to your home.

He also enjoys helping those struggling with depression, anxiety, panic attacks and phobias.

Being in business for the past 30 years, the owner of five businesses, a licensed mortgage broker, and trained in financial planning, Dr. Robbins brings a full perspective to the challenges that business owners are faced with. From balancing family and business success, employee challenges, family owned business challenges, and a host of other issues that owners are faced with, Dr. Robbins brings clinical and practical experience to your challenges.

Peter Robbins is great in helping you work through challenging family matters. He asks the right questions and keeps the discussion moving toward a resolution. He has made seeking counseling a very easy decision when we have had a family issue to work through.

Dr Robbins is a Therapist that understands the challenges of everyday life, and that the harder parts can take a tole on all of us. He is not a typical "backseat therapist" that espouses abstract ideas that look good on paper. Instead, he works with and engages YOU, to help with the issues/conflicts you're dealing with.  I have seen and experienced  first hand the amazing work that he does and the healing that can occur when he is given the opportunity to help. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is thinking about seeking counseling/therapy. He can help.

Dr. Pete gets it!!  His style is different than your typical counselor/ therapist. He is able to get to the root of the problem quickly, which means you solve your issues quickly and you save money in doing so.

My marriage was done; I thought we were at the point of no return. I thought after 19 years of marriage and 25 years of having my Husband in my life that we were through.  Dr. Pete helped us save our marriage and family. We had been to several counselors & therapist through the years and Pete has been the only one to cut through the crud and get to the point.  Thank you Dr. Pete!!
