Svetlana Levak, Ph.D.
My approach to therapy is to create a safe space for patients to share what has been overwhelming and challenging in life, so they may gain clarity and find solutions. My role is to guide and support patients through change. I am an expert in Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and utilize evidence-based treatment models. Establishing motivation is key to enabling change, while CBT provides a foundational framework to understanding patterns of behaviors and changing them.
Life can get difficult, and sometimes a little help from a professional psychologist can make things better. I care about your well-being and provide you all the tools you need in order to change and ultimately live better lives.
