Hi! I’m Pete Cannizzaro.

Lots of people call me “Dr. Pete.” If I were sitting in your seat, I would want to know some things about me before I took that first step towards scheduling an appointment. If after reading all of the following info, you still have questions, don’t hesitate to contact me and freely ask!

Dr. Pete Cannizzaro

Join me on Monday evenings via Facebook Live, where I coach and strengthen the soul of you, my friends.


My Passions:

  • I am passionate about helping people encounter God and connect with him deeply.

  • I believe in God's healing of the soul because I see it in scripture and I've experienced it in my life!

  • It is my pleasure to walk alongside you in your healing journey.

  • I have a special heart for young adults – those in their 20’s and early 30’s, recognizing the struggles unique to this age range.

  • I partner with the Holy Spirit as I counsel. I depend on the Spirit to speak to you and me.

  • I believe in healing the soul because I’ve experienced it and all of the abundance that comes with healing.

My Counseling Style:

  • I’m a good attentive listener. As I’m listening to you, I’m also listening to the Holy Spirit for direction, wisdom and words that will be helpful to you.

  • My counseling space is a small cabin right next to my home. It’s casual and warm – not clinical. You will find the atmosphere to be comfortable and relaxing.


My Family:

  • My wife of over 32 years is my soulmate. She's not in the counseling room with me, but I do consult her from time to time for a woman's perspective. She is a great advocate for SoulQuest counseling and ensures everyone who needs counseling get counseling.

  • My kids, Alisha, Josh and Jake, are all adults now. Ellen and I are having a great time watching each of them pursue their own passions.

My Experience:

  • I have been in the people side of ministry and life since my college days. Encountering God through his life giving and life transforming ways has been a highlight. I have had the joy of seeing this with each generation in multiple regions of our country. I have over 32 years of experience in ministry as pastor, leader, teacher, international life developer, and professional counselor. 


  • Undergraduate degree in Pastoral Ministries and Bible

  • Graduate Degree in Masters of Divinity 

  • Doctorate in Soul Care


  • I've lead and facilitated many missions trips over the years to over 12 nations. 

  • I've served in various roles over the years for the College of Prayer International, existing to help pastors and leaders be revived in God and their ministry.

  • I've taught and facilitated marriage retreats, seminars and prayer gatherings in Africa, South America, Europe and Asia.
