Jenny Azam

LCSW, Therapist (spectrum & trauma)

Jenny’s approach is collaborative, integrative, and grounded in a belief that each of us possess our own internal wisdom and innate capacity to heal. She began her career in psycho-oncology, supporting clients and their loved ones in exploring the relational impact and psychic suffering that accompanies illness, grief and bereavement.

Jenny’s therapeutic vision draws from training in cognitive behavior therapy, mindfulness, trauma-informed care, sensorimotor psychotherapy, EMDR, neurodiverse couples therapy, and internal family systems work. She brings a holistic perspective to identifying and transforming the conflicts of mind-body-spirit that impede our fullest expression of self and ability to build meaningful connection. Your relationship with her offers a secure, nurturing, and non-shaming space to explore and rework maladaptive patterns and behaviors while operationalizing your inherent strengths. 

Couples therapy and neurodiverse couples therapy have many similarities, but neurodiverse couples therapy focuses on helping each partner identify their unique relational strengths and liabilities in a non-blaming way, providing psychoeducation around the role that their neurodiversity plays in a couple’s interactions, incorporates skill-building to support better perspective-taking, communication and navigation/tolerance of conflict, and attempts to support partners in seeing themselves as a team working to overcome the neurodiversity, rather than against each other. 

Jenny completed her MSW at Columbia University, as well as a post-graduate certification in Palliative and End-of-Life Care from Smith College. She offers psychotherapeutic services to individuals, couples and families, and has a special interest in working with those diagnosed with ASD/Asperger Syndrome in adulthood.

“The impulse to heal is real and powerful and lies within the client. Our job is to evoke that healing power… and support it in its expression and development. We are not the healers. We are the context in which healing is inspired.”
- Ron Kurtz


“Trauma is not what happens to us, but what we hold inside in the absence of an empathetic witness...Trauma is about loss of connection—to ourselves, our bodies, our families, to others, and to the world around us. This disconnection is often hard to recognize because it doesn't happen all at once but rather over time.”
- Peter Levine


“A lot of people assume that having OCD means liking things organized or hating germs. It tends to be treated like a quirk or an endearing trait. But it's so much more than that. It's the one thing that prohibits me from being free of myself.” - Whitney Amazeen


“Think of having ADHD in this way… You have a ‘Ferrari’ brain but with ‘Chevy’ brakes.”
- Jonathan Mooney
