I think of each my client’s concerns as experiences that have not yet found solutions or understanding. I approach my clinical work as a creative interpersonal problem-solving process in which together we will work to better understand the problem, the obstacles, and the solutions.

My personal creed is: Make the world a better place by finding your strengths and doing good. Remember, “A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.”

I work at Azimuth Psychological, a unique place where we see clients as a whole person, not just a diagnosis. Our clients work to gain perspectives and insights that help get them unstuck so they can reach their goals, whatever that may be. We make your process as easy as possible, whether that’s scheduling your appointment (have us call you!), completing your paperwork (all online), paying for your sessions (credit cards), locating ourselves next to a variety of public transportation options (T and Bus), and giving us feedback (anonymous electronic forms). Please don't hesitate to reach out — I am happy to answer an questions you may have.
