People go to therapy to address a problem that is distressing them and causing interference in a significant aspect of their life (work, social life, interpersonal relationships, sleep, etc.) After the immediate problem is resolved or significantly reduced, most of my clients continue to stay in therapy because they have started noticing a change in themselves that they like! To me, therapy isn't just about reducing symptoms. It is about much more. It's about experiencing meaning in life. It's about connecting with the best version of ourselves and knowing that person is there within us. That's true self-confidence. My clients tend to tell me they feel more "whole". That's therapy to me.

Psychotherapy gives us the opportunity to understand and change something that is negatively affecting our lives that we do not understand. Examples: Work success unobtainable! I am not liked at work! I Feel hoeless and helpless at times! Romance illudes me! Friendships are few or don't exist at all! I can't get intimate easily! Realtionships come and go! I always seeming pick the wrong people for partners! Its hard for me to set goals! I day dream a lot! In Psychotherapy we will explore the problems, understand the causes, how they are impacting our lives today. We will identify the areas we want to change, seek out solutions, set goals and work toward resolution.

Sometimes the harder try to connect, the more distant and lonely you end up feeling. Yet you keep using the same ineffective strategies, because what else can you do? Or maybe you give up. You are probably spending enough time and effort already trying to make it work — you’re just doing it in the wrong way. I can help you channel your efforts more successfully using emotionally focused therapy (EFT).

In addition, unlike many other "therapists' or "counselors", he is a Clinical Psychologist (and one of the VERY few Clinical Psychologists holding Board-Certification). With more than 20 years of experience providing cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy, you can rest assured if you select Dr. Levine. He has been described as compassionate, warm & easy to speak to.

The process of therapy can be life-changing. It likely won't feel like it at first. You'll wonder what you're supposed to talk about and if you're doing it right. Some sessions will be inspiring and insightful; some will be boring and just plain hard. But over some time, we will develop a therapeutic relationship that will allow you to see yourself, life, and the people in it more clearly. You'll have a better understanding of your past and how you became the person you are today. You will likely get in touch with feelings, thoughts and beliefs that existed just below the surface. As we understand them and give them language, symptoms tend to diminish.

The most successful people have benefited from a course of therapy. Knowledge is power and self-knowledge makes you powerful. To learn what you don't know about yourself can help you avoid trouble at work, at home and with your own happiness. I think everyone deserves to invest in themselves, after all you take you everywhere! My first question is often, "If our conversations were successful and we were done, what would your life look like?" Not an easy question to answer because we are pretty clear about what we don't want. It's important to clarify what you want your life to look like if you had considered it successful at the end of it. My therapy is solution-focused.

Psychotherapy is a fun, engaging, and transformative process! As your therapist I will work closely with you to identify what is working in your life, as well as what is missing and what isn't working. We will identify your real, hidden and emergent dreams, and goals. I will hold you accountable to making the changes you desire real, and this will further assist you in becoming more of the person that you want to be. I have assisted countless individuals and couples in the process of self discovery, living your truth, and living an identity of your choice, not one ascribed to you.

We manage things on our own just fine, but some things just don’t get better despite our best efforts. That’s where psychotherapy can help. It helps by developing new ways of looking at the issue, gaining a better understanding of the situation, learning new ways of thinking and exploring other options and choices, all with the aim to get unstuck from the old unproductive pattern. People can and do change, and you can too. It’s like most things, if you ignore it, nothing changes. But if you focus on it and work for a positive change, it does happen.

I love helping people transform their lives and get the Aha moments that lead to real change. Therapy to me is about making internal changes to the way that we think, as well as, understanding why we feel what we feel. I believe it is the little choices we make that make huge impacts in our daily living. Great therapy transforms your relationships, your confidence at school or work, and your perspective on life.

My approach to psychotherapy does not involve years of talk about issues until the client reaches a "catharsis," and suddenly is cured. It is more of a collaboration and involves the client to engage in his own therapy. We look for solutions, rather than talking about "problems" endlessly. As a person-centered therapist, I believe an authentic, respectful and caring relationship with the client fosters growth and self-actualization. The use of cognive-behavioral methods, allows us to look for underlying beliefs the client may have about his place in the world, and unrealistic thought patterns, such as "all-or-nothing" thinking. These can be redirected to provide positive outomes.

A high level of trust and comfort for you in psychotherapy is a must. Working with an experienced therapist you can rely upon to listen skillfully will help you to learn to to lift negative moods, become a better problem solver, or improve relationships. Can simply sharing your problems with a therapist be enough to help you improve? I often hear from new patients that they were dissappointed in prior therapy because they were not helped to foucus and to use specific tools that not only made them feel better in therapy, but also in their lives. Therapy should be designed to help you learn at you own, most effective pace for you.

Does therapy really work? Yes, it does! Talk therapy is not only effective, but it helps you build neurons as you stretch your capacity to think and feel. Do you ever feel as if you are doing the same actions over and over and it leads to the same results? I can help you understand the patterns of behavior that in the past may have lead to less than desirable outcomes. Therapy is an incredible tool which enables you to see problems and situations from a different perspective. Finally, therapy is a safe place to talk about the things you may not feel comfortable saying to anyone else. Call me for a free 15 minute consultation.

Psychotherapy is an exploration of the internal world of the client, using that person's external experiences as a clue to what the person has experienced and believes about him or herself. When people discuss their life histories and their present difficulties I work with them to understand what the connections are, what they may be reliving and what may be preventing them from making positive and healthier choices and changes in their lives. The focus is on the present, using the past as a source of important information. Most clients experience a new, freer and stronger sense of themselves and a better ability to deal with their relationships and with life's unpredictable events.

In laymen's terms, psychotherapy is the opportunity to talk about and process your problems or challenges with a trained therapist. Sometimes, we don't need someone to try to fix our problems for us, which is what most of our friends try to do when we talk about them. Sometimes we need someone who will listen and be a sounding board so we can think through and process for ourselves. I want to support you with your goals and your needs and we can make a therapy plan (psychotherapy or other types) that you feel will best suit your needs. Most importantly, I provide that safe environment for you to be able to be vulnerable, talk about, and process whatever is on your heart and in your mind.
