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 look forward to the chance to work with you.


Dr. Petersen works at Azimuth Psychological. Azimuth  is a lifestyle-focused psychological services company specializing in helping clients with mood, transitions, relationships, and performance problems stemming from a broad range of psychological issues. Azimuth was founded on the idea that many real-world problems cannot be resolved through a single clinical approach. By employing only doctoral-level psychologists who are each trained in a variety of treatment modalities, Azimuth allows our clinicians to be as flexible and dynamic as our clients need them to be.
