Peach Tree Psychological offers online psychotherapy to individuals ages 18 and above in the state of Pennsylvania. Nicholas Del Pesco,MA,LPC began Peach Tree Psychological in 2016 with the strong belief that the internet is a convenient and viable platform for engaging in the therapeutic process.
Nicholas began his career in human services at Northeast Treatment Centers in Philadelphia, PA where, over the course of 7 years, he worked as Youth Advocate for adjudicated adolescents, lead clinician for a community based treatment team and outpatient therapist. After becoming a licensed psychotherapist in 2014, Nicholas worked as outpatient therapist for multiple companies in the Philadelphia area where he helped clients manage or overcome symptoms related to anxiety, stress, trauma, depression, bipolar disorder and adjustment and relational issues.
Nicholas’ therapeutic approach is strongly rooted in humanistic psychology. As described in an article from the Association for Humanistic Psychology, this approach offers a "crucial opportunity to lead our troubled culture back to its own healthy path. More than any other therapy, Humanistic-Existential therapy models democracy. It imposes ideologies of others upon the client less than other therapeutic practices. Freedom to choose is maximized. We validate our clients' human potential." Nicholas also utilizes aspects of Buddhist psychology including mindfulness, which enhances each client’s ability to monitor present moment experience. He specializes in stress management and mindfulness training but can assist clients with a wide range of issues.
