About Me

Teisha Y. Levi, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #101104, based in the Bay Area region, (Oakland/San Francisco) California.

I currently provide direct care in Psychiatry and run a private therapy practice-Mental Wellness with Teisha. I lead with experience in teaching Family Crisis and Co-Dependency – for two years, at San Francisco State University, San Francisco; offering knowledge in the area of family crisis, resilience and coping; teaching primarily with a focus on mental health and substance use, with undergraduate level-upper-division students. I currently spend time, leading weekly supervision groups for interns working to complete MFT/LCSW licensure in California.

I work with a wide range of emotional, cognitive, and behavioral issues. Providing experienced therapy in the areas of depression, forgiveness, anxiety, trauma, grief, anger management, and serious mental illnesses.

“It’s been extremely rewarding to support those who struggle with their painful past, or who turn to the emotion of anger, and who are vested in the unwillingness to forgive, I can help change that prospective” ~ Teisha.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by J.A. on Nov 22, 2021 after therapy with Teisha for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, anger management, and adhd

Teisha helped me with some of the most difficult thoughts and times I had recently. She understands my concerns and offers suggestions that are realistic and achievable. Teisha also challenges me to think deeper instead of letting my surface feelings consume me as it’s something I struggle with. She is the right balance of compassionate and practical, I would recommend her to any one of my close friends.

Teisha is an amazing counselor! She is a really good listener, and is very organized. I feel like she is very understanding, and I appreciate that she can refer back to things we have discussed in previous sessions.
