Know that mood shifts, anxiety, depression , etc.
After suspending my practice in early March, 2019, I have notified my clients that I have placed my practice on hold until pandemic conditions permit. Remote therapy can help many people but it does not conform to what I bring to my patients. It has been very meaningful to have worked with those of you I have seen over a 40 year career. Thanks for your trust in sharing your "stories" with me. I encourage, but you have displayed the courage it takes to make meaningful change. I hope to resume my practice when conditions permit. See the movie, "Good Will Hunting." It is beautiful and "therapeutic." Dr. Levine

I specialize in helping people - just like you - struggling with anxiety, depression , trauma, major life transitions, and relationship difficulties.
Feeling overwhelmed is all too common these days. Sometimes, uncomfortable thoughts and feelings even keep you up at night. You spend a lot of time trying to convince yourself that everything is "fine,” but deep down you know it's not true. Hoping all of this would just go away hasn't worked. Instead, you feel sad, isolated, and scared. If you're being honest with yourself, you know things won't improve unless you take action, but it can be hard to imagine what would make a difference.

I have significant experience working with clients who have a wide range of concerns including sexual trauma, depression , anxiety, family difficulties, peer problems, self-injurious behaviors, grief and loss, and adjustment and life transitions.
Chocolate, snowboarding, and shopping can be therapeutic, but sometimes they're not enough. I see teenagers, adults, and families when struggles get in the way of fun and suffering becomes too familiar. Friends and family hopefully are there when we need them, yet therapists can provide additional essentials: nonjudgmental, individual attention in a safe setting. Relationships are central to our well-being, and the therapy process involves building a relationship. Clients lead, and I listen to your goals and help you to identify unhealthy patterns, reduce negative self-talk, and learn more about how you view yourself and the world.

It is not uncommon for people to talk and think their way 'better'. They have made sense of their problems and wish to 'just move on'. However, they can't seem to rid themselves of the emotional turmoil and physical pain that remains. My clients say to me, 'I just want to move on but my anxiety, depression , trauma, bad habits, pain, guilt, shame, family members...just won't let me'.

I am a certified Developmental and Relational Trauma Therapist, who specializes in PTSD, anxiety, depression , grief and loss.
Sometimes life is rewarding and energizing, sometimes painful or overwhelming, and sometimes stagnant and colorless. There are times we thrive on our own, and other times if we listen to our inner voice, we are led to seek the support we deserve. I believe we all hold unique qualities, characteristics and beliefs, that make us unlike anyone else. I work with clients to identify and cultivate their innate strengths and resources and to inspire positive changes towards a more balanced and meaningful life. I utilize psycho-education, mindfulness, and cognitive behavioral therapy to teach and implement positive coping strategies.

“When we deny the story, it defines us. When we own the story, we can write a brave new ending.” -Brene Brown. Life has its challenges. Relationships can be complicated. During hard times, you may pull away from others fearing the personal connection or believe you just need time on your own to figure things out. By looking at your own story and learning from what did or didn't work, you can grow and still achieve the ending you want to your story.

Pornography, affairs or internet sex controlling your life? Afraid you or your loved one is a sex addict? As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, sex therapist and psychotherapist providing counseling and sex therapy to the Madison Wisconsin area for over twenty years, people often tell me that before therapy with me they had never told anyone the extent of their pain from sexual addiction, abuse, assault or other sexual problems. Shame, hopelessness and embarrassment fed isolation and depression . Clients tell me my respect, compassion and sound clinical strategies build safety and hope as we work together as a recovery team.

Whether you’re struggling with addiction or unresolved trauma; healing from domestic violence; enduring a relationship breakup; or concerned by your child’s mental health and behavioral issues, let’s work together on a positive path forward. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in addiction and substance abuse and certified in trauma and domestic violence therapy and as divorce and family mediator.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Middleton. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
