Meet Ryanne

Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor

I’m Ryanne J. Peterson: wife, daughter, friend, sister, and healer!


My goal is to eliminate stigmas and debunk myths surrounding mental health in black and brown communities. Over the last 7 years, I have worked as a counselor with students and families in the Durham community to do just that. I am also the Founder and Executive Director of a Durham-based non-profit organization, MastHERpiece focused on training today’s teens to be tomorrow’s queens by helping them redefine the word success. We shape and mold girls and the women in their lives to take control over their mental health and wellness through modeling and exposure. 


I really want to normalize getting and keeping our mental health in check. 


I’m determined to help women and families break toxic cycles that have held them back from achieving true happiness and freedom! Let’s work together.
