Announcement icon During the COVID-19 crisis, all sessions will be via a HIPPAA compliant, Zoom telehealth platform or by telephone.
Dealing with difficult life situations is harder when decision making is clouded by emotions that make us feel stuck or act in ways that lead to unwanted outcomes. By learning to think clearer and to safely express emotions, you will discover healthier ways to respond. I work with people whose blocked feelings cause physical and/or emotional pain. I help couples who are caught in problematic relationships develop clearer boundaries. I encourage self care. I help you challenge what gets in your own way. I also have expertise in helping ailing people facing end of life issues and welcome those who need to explore these concerns.
I see people individually, as couples, and in groups. Therapy is a powerful laboratory to experience how we trip ourselves up and learn new, more effective means to communicate, testing out what feels too hard to try in our lives. When we can see more options, we can choose new options. Group can be a cost effective place for this work.
My aim is to help you become more resilient, to support and challenge you at your own pace, so that you become less driven by anxiety or fear. As a board certified physician in Internal Medicine and psychotherapist for over 30 years, I offer a respectful, therapeutic environment and will be with you as you safely explore your situation and learn new skills.

Ilana Bar-Levav's Groups

Monday Psychodynamic Group

Ongoing group of up to 8 people that meets weekly. The group is an interactive "lab" where relationship and other issues that have caused problems in your life can be revealed, explored and worked with in a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental setting. The group is supportive, while providing opportunities to respond to one another more honestly and openly that what social and family conventions often allow. Seeing reactions in others that can be hard to see in yourself provides the distance needed to reflect on how you impact others, thus allowing for changes to detrimental behavior.
