Peter Harakas, Ph.D.

I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in Cognitive Behavioral Treatment (CBT) for coping with chronic illness, such as chronic tinnitus, misophonia, and chronic pain and/or fatigue. I help clients cope with the symptoms of tinnitus, learn to manage their emotional reactions, and disassociate the condition from burdensome negative behavioral responses. In addition to CBT, I also incorporate elements from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Progressive Tinnitus Management (PTM).
