Carolyn Levitan

(LCSW)

About Me

I have been working as a therapist for the past 15 years. I have diverse experience connecting with and building collaborative relationships with clients of various genders, cultures, sexual orientations and life stages. I mainly specialize in working with young adults, namely ages 20-35. I have a high level of expertise working with people experiencing a spectrum of emotions spanning from daily stress, emotional crisis and suicidal thoughts brought on by various life stressors such as relationships, work, school, finances, mental health concerns, isolation, addiction, and current events related to politics, social injustice and COVID-19. I find it highly rewarding to collaborate with clients in addressing various problems in their lives and identifying simple action steps that can be taken toward resolution and coping. Therapy does not need to be scary nor dull. My clients would say I come across as kind, unintimidating and understanding . No one deserves to feel alone when they are experiencing difficult emotions and I look forward to being on your team and working on addressing concerns together. I am also highly experienced in providing professional tele-therapy, especially online chatting and texting, which is often clients' preferred mode of communication. I have additional expertise in providing resources easily accessible and free for clients to utilize for support outside of therapy.
