Peter Fowler, LPCC
Director of Education
Peter is a licensed professional clinical counselor. Prior to becoming a therapist, Peter spent two years as a high school history teacher in New York City. It was during this time that he recognized the unique needs of adolescents and became more focused on their individual growth. Currently, Peter is the Director of Education for Discovery Mood & Anxiety Program. Peter had served in various capacities for Discovery since 2013, from being a mental health technician and therapist to a program director and executive program director for the substance use facilities in Long Beach, California. In addition, Peter has over 15 years of experience working with adolescents in other capacities, including youth organizations and summer camps.
Peter loves helping adolescents navigate the difficulties of this stage of life to get on a path that leads to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healthiness and personal success. His goal is to create a safe environment where he can work with the patient on developing self-awareness of their strengths and needs and identify healthy short- and long-term goals. Peter also loves helping families reconnect and grow together after years of chaos and pain. With his roles focused on the education aspect of treatment, Peter hopes to support Discovery programs and families by ensuring they receive support on getting their academic needs met and understanding how to navigate through this process when mental health struggles are involved as well. During his free time, Peter enjoys all things outdoors, from playing volleyball to running, hiking and surfing, and also loves spending time with his family.
