Peter Fortunato, MFA, CHT
Poet & Artist, Certified Hypnotherapist, Ordained Minister

Welcome! You’ve found my website. Here is some basic information about me and my professional services.

I am a practitioner of complementary alternative medicine working in several mind/body modalities.  I specialize in hypnosis, Reiki, shamanic healing and Buddhist based counseling.   In essence, I help people to learn about themselves so as to enable their personal and spiritual growth.  I have experience with all of the classical applications of hypnosis including stress reduction, smoking cessation, phobia eradication, pain control, decision making, past-life regressions, preparing for surgery, preparing for birthing, and performance excellence. 

PETER FORTUNATO, MFA, CHTI am an educator and life coach, a spiritual guide rather than a mental health practitioner. My services are professional in nature, not “medical” or “psychological,” and so, I do not accept insurance reimbursements. I have been in private practice for more than 20 years in Ithaca, NY, and I have worked with hundreds of clients on many kinds of issues.

As well as being a healer, I am a poet, performer, ceremony maker, visual artist, and teacher.  Explore my website to learn more about my writing and artwork.

I have been associated with Cornell University and Ithaca College for most of my life, and I recently spent four years teaching at Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar. There, my writing seminars for the Pre-Medical Program introduced future doctors from all over the world to literature in English, as well as to such subjects as narrative medicine and psychology.

I am non-sectarian, and I am always interested in how others make sense of their reality. However, as a Buddhist practitioner for more than 40 years, I have applied the principles of its psychology and cosmology in many settings and with diverse people.  As an ordained minister in the Universal Life Church I frequently perform non-sectarian and interdenominational services, including weddings.
