Daniel E Levin
Psychiatrist, MD
I work with people who are struggling as a result of both psychological and underlying psychiatric problems. These underlying problems can lead to problems developing or maintaining good relationships and or success at work or school. The problems can interfere with their leading a life that feels meaningful and rewarding. These problems can manifest as symptoms of anxiety, depression or behaviors that interfere with someone's ability utilize their strengths to live their life in way that works well for them.

The best way to get to know how I work is to come in and talk with me about yourself. I work with people who are dissatisfied with their lives as well as people who are struggling with mental illness. I will work with you collaboratively to achieve one or more of the following: greater freedom in what you choose for yourself, greater satisfaction in relationships and work, a sense of mastery over your emotions, symptoms, or sources of distress, deeper self-understanding and comfort with who you are.
