Meet The Team

Professional Pete.jpg

 Peter Dahlberg

I believe that everyone should have access to quality mental health treatment, that is one of the reasons I went into this profession. I also believe that you should be able to access psychiatric care without the associated stigma that is sometimes attached to it. Here at Mountain Valley Mental Health care is given in a non-judgemental and laid back atmosphere.                 


I am an Army veteran, I served as a 1st Lieutenant in the Army Nurse Corp.  I practiced as a registered nurse for over 20 years in the acute care setting, before deciding to become a nurse practitioner. I have been practicing as a board certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner for 7 years and have treated patients from ages 6 and up through the life-span. I have treated patients in both the inpatient and outpatient setting, and have experience with a wide range of mental health disorders.

Mr. Dahlberg is a California native, but lived in Texas for several years before relocating to Colorado to practice independently.

Mr. Dalhberg sees & treats all Colorado patients:
