About Kosta Petrogeorge, LMFT

Rather than subscribing to the traditional adage of counseling to “meet clients where they’re at,” Kosta adheres to the saying by noted therapist, Steve Andrew, “meet clients where they dream!” He knows that a person’s choices and behaviors, even when they prove to be harmful, may actually be a coping mechanism for the wounded self. Through compassion and intentional guidance, Mr. Petrogeorge helps clients identify their true desires and aspirations, which are often buried in anger, sadness, shame and confusion. Utilizing effective modalities and skills such as motivational interviewing, love and logic, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and somatic mindfulness, he works with each person to explore their inner strengths to develop daily, proactive choices and healthy, long-lasting habits. Specifically, he encourages his clients to identify positive, eternal views about all aspects of life including sexuality, relationships, work, sacrifice and health. Drawing on years of therapy in a wide array of cultures, he connects with each unique client in a safe and comfortable environment while inviting them to be honest, vulnerable and courageous as they realize their dreams. Watching his clients gain positive insights and make healthy shifts is Kostas’s greatest joy! He is fluent in Hellenistic Greek and Modern Greek.
