Peter McMullen, LAPC

Peter McMullen, LAPC Peter McMullen is a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor in New Jersey who has been practicing since 2022. He has a BA in English from Boston College and an MA in Mental Health Counseling from New York University. Many people wait the entirety of their lives for the “perfect time” to make improvements, yet this moment merely does not exist. We are all human and therefore face adversity or struggle in some capacity, whether it be individually as humans or collectively as a society. Throughout this therapeutic counseling process, you and Peter work together to help you discover and establish the required insight and coping skills needed to adequately address your overall mental health.

Working alongside a wide range of individuals including children, adolescents, adults, and elderly, Peter ensures his clients live authentically, while maximizing their potential in all facets of life. His therapeutic approach is driven through a psychodynamic and humanistic lens. Utilizing an empathetic, collaborative, and transparent process, Peter initially focuses on helping his clients develop a general awareness and understanding of their mental health and well-being. Next, the objective is to help them find relief from present mental health symptoms and other personal struggles by integrating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Strength-Based therapy, Mindfulness, and Solution-Focused Therapy techniques.

Outside of work, Peter’s hobbies include spending quality time with family and friends, passionately rooting for his favorite sports teams, and spending time exploring the outdoors
