If you're reading this, there's a good possibility that some aspect of your life is currently unmanageable, stressful, maybe even crippling. Perhaps you're struggling with a relationship or parenting issues. Maybe you're just wondering how you got to this place and why things haven't turned out as you once thought they might have. Regardless of what you are experiencing, psychotherapy has proven to be an effective form of dealing with any number of situations, conflicts or life issues.

With a degree in Communications from the University of Southern California in Communications and a Masters degree in Psychology from the Phillips Graduate University, assisting individuals and couples through whatever problems, pain and challenges they are experiencing is what my practice is all about.

Working from psychodynamic and family systems models, I help clients look at the origins of behaviors and emotions which can then lead to shifts in present behaviors. With couples, I have training in emotionally focused therapy which is geared towards assisting partners towards communicate in a healthier, more effective manner.

Matthew Levy's Groups

PARENTS OR RELATIVES OF TRANSGENDER KIDS

Does your child or family member identify as transgender? Are you looking for a place to process your feelings & gain understanding so you can most effectively navigate your way through this journey? As a parent of a transgender teen myself, I've found that speaking with other parents going through their similar experience has been incredibly helpful. It's informed and assisted me in things like being a better, more supportive parent/advocate, understanding what's actually happening, and realizing that I am not alone. This group is now forming. Please email me if you would like to join.
