40 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I enjoy working with individuals and couples: helping people communicate better and learning assertiveness skills. I also work with people who are grieving. I use visualization, role playing, split chair, and conflict resolution. My goal is to teach you skills and help you develop your own skill set. I enjoy working with people in their 20's and 30's and 40's. Younger people are challenged with anxiety, PTSD, and surprisingly, the need to be perfect. Another group close to my heart are those who have been hurt and/or who struggle with forgiveness. I want to listen to you, ask questions, and hear what has worked as well as what yet hasn't worked. Feedback is very important. What have you tried, what parts were successful, and what do you still want to do? How can I help? My work experiences include: child welfare, counseling teenagers in residential treatment, working as a supervisor then family counselor in corrections (women’s treatment center), counseling in a Christian-based private practice, mental health outreach for the elderly, medical social work including ER support, kidney dialysis social work; and, in retirement couples’ classes and counseling.

I have been in the mental health field for twenty years with a wide range of roles from activities specialist, case management, vocational services coordinator, management and as a professional licensed counselor. I enjoy working with all ages and mental health disorders. Cognitive behavior therapy is my main approach in the office. it is proven to help individuals better under stand how their beliefs and values form over time so that it becomes possible to guide them back to a healthy place if those beliefs and values about themselves contribute to distorted thinking. I have completed multiple CBT seminars through the Beck Institute and have developed the skill of interweaving dialectical behavior therapy, solution focused therapy, strengths based therapy and motivational interviewing into the process. I have a great deal of empathy for individuals with adverse child and adult experiences. I respect each individual for the strengths they have demonstrated in getting through difficult times. I want people to feel safe in my office to share their stories even when it becomes an emotional experience. Through identifying an individuals strengths and attributes, building the level of confidence in an individual to make change becomes possible. I am a strong believer in the individual leading the way to achieve changes in their behavior; I simply provide them with the tools and skills to be successful.

14 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Career and work issues are two of my primary areas of emphasis, helping people who want to stay in their present job with its difficulties, make a decision to leave and how to prepare for it, or even explore a different career and/or educational path--with all the emotions those things can evoke. Relationships, which are so important can be affected by these issues and a host of others. Many of those with problems in either area that seemed overwhelming began by talking about them and when ready took small steps that in themselves brightened their outlook on the future and eventually led to improved outcomes. My mission is to see the world through your eyes, to pose questions to help clarify how you see that world, and to always be in your corner whatever you decide. What I will do consistently is listen intently without judgment, show sincere empathy, look for and validate strengths, do collaborative problem solving, and even share some humor along the way. I find that these practices help good solutions rise to the top. My name is Eric Levine. I’m a licensed Counselor based in Washington State having worked 12 years in the field of counseling after earning my Masters specializing in Counseling Psychology at UCLA. Like many counselors my preference is to work with people in person. But since remote counseling has come to the fore (even more so after the pandemic hit) I find the next best mode is talking on the phone which brings with it a sense of "presence," along with inflection, emphasis, feeling tones, humor, and most importantly the ability to immediately clear up any misunderstandings with the sensitivity of the spoken word. In that regard I’ve been told I have a very calm and pleasant voice that I owe to my father, a newscaster whose warm emotionality came right through the radio, even more so to those of us around him. After a fairly long career in education and counseling programs, I seek to return through this venue to a similar position I held in a university setting where I was able to work individually with students, staff, and administrators, young and old. The shared openness involved was something I could never take for granted, the life stories amazing in themselves.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Nespelem?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Nespelem therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Nespelem therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Nespelem therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Nespelem therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in WA, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 99155 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Nespelem counselor?

Before seeing your Nespelem therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Nespelem.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Nespelem licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Nespelem counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Nespelem, Washington can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Nespelem has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
