Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Psychiatrist

Houston, TX

About Dr. Peter Wu

I am a psychiatrist skilled in psychotherapy (talk therapy, counseling, life coaching, and psychoanalysis). I specialize in helping people reach their full potential by answering difficult life questions such as, "What's happening," "What does this mean," and perhaps most importantly, "What should I do?" With years of clinical experience treating patients of all ages, from children to adults, I meet my patients where they are, and work to offer what they need, whether that be medication, short or long-term psychotherapy, or a combination that fits the person. I use evidence-based (scientifically proven) practices that are tailored to a person's lifestyle, family, and culture. I often ask myself, "If this person were my family member, what kind of care would I want for him or her?" Call today for a brief initial phone consultation. Feel free to leave a voicemail, as I will personally return your call within one business day. Same day and next day appointments available. Please note that I am considered out-of-network for insurance purposes in order to work with you for the amount of time and using the therapeutic approach that we agree is best. The standard fee for each session is $400 for 45 minutes. If appropriate, documentation can be provided to assist you in obtaining out-of-network reimbursement from your insurance company.

Dr. Wu is fantastic. Before the initial meeting, he called to get an idea of what was going on, and tolet me know that he is not in network with any insurance. In the initial consultation, he provided outside resources that could help with the situation. I was very comfortable talking to him, and appreciated his medical view.
