Hello and welcome to Turning Tides Psychological Services. My name is Peggy Cummiskey and I have my Masters Degree in Professional Counseling. I am currently working towards completing licensure for Professional Counseling in Pennsylvania. I am a veteran and was a military family member. I have experience with addiction, PTSD, grief, long term illness, anxiety, depression, building up positive self-esteem, relocation, divorce, empty nest, and change in career. I work with adults, couples, and families.
I utilize person centered therapy in which I build a therapeutic relationship with my client(s) by providing a safe space in which trust and respect are built. I believe in meeting my client's where they are at in their life journey and assisting in helping them accomplish their goals and vision for themselves. Depending on the needs and goals of the client's we build a treatment plan focusing on specific accomplishments and direction of change the client desires to achieve. My modalities are chosen based on the treatment plan in which Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Impact Therapy approaches can be utilized.
I believe counseling to be a dynamic alliance that allows a client to grow stronger mentally and emotionally. I am honored to have the privilege of assisting you to meet your goals for mental wellness and look forward to meeting you.
