Kosta Petrogeorge LMFT, CSAT, MDiv

Rather than subscribing to the traditional adage of counseling, “meet clients where they’re at”, Kosta embraces the viewpoint, “meet clients where they dream!” (Steve Andrew).

 

Kosta understands that at heart, a person’s choices and behaviors, even when they prove to be unimaginably harmful to self and others, most often are coping mechanisms for the wounded self. Through compassion and intentional guidance Kosta helps men and women identify their true desires and aspirations, which are often buried in anger, sadness, shame and confusion. Corresponding to this, Kosta works with each person to explore the inner strengths they possess that enable them 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. His years of providing therapy in a wide array of cultures and various backgrounds enable his clients to easily connect with him.

 

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, both in North Carolina and Pennsylvania, Kosta is passionate about couple/family relationships. He is also certified in treating Sexual Addiction and Betrayal Trauma. Further, he also specializes in parent-child relationships and the young adult experience. For many years he has led highly engaging weekly parent-education groups. He has given many seminars on relationship dynamics, including dating, marriage and parent-child relationships.

In addition, Kosta offers a unique style and experience through attentive holistic care based on both ancient wisdom and evidence-based best practices. These include, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, the “30 tasks of recovery” (Patrick Carnes), Karpman triangle, somatic mindfulness and Accelerated Resolution Therapy. He works alongside each individual person in a safe and comfortable environment, while supporting them to be honest and courageous as they experience new victories in their journey. Watching his clients gain positive insights and make healthy shifts is Kosta’s greatest joy!
