Dr. Levinson's
Personal Message to You:

"I specialize in defining the person’s difficulties in reaching her goals and ambitions. Ones defined, therapy sessions focus on constructive ways of fulfilling and achieving these targets in a timely manner. The ultimate goal of therapy is to re-shift attention and regain personal responsibility and growth.

I make sure therapeutic sessions are conducted in a confidential and supportive setting. Whenever appropriate, I am geared toward short term, goal-oriented modality. In treating patients, I am aware of and appreciate cultural differences; specifically, the importance of understanding and relating accurately to culturally diverse patients.

My clinical orientation and training is Integrative, as it combines Psycho- dynamic and Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) perspectives with Eastern one. Although the main focus is on the "Here and Now", I examine how family history and early attachment styles are repeated and manifested in today’s life. I probe for problematic thinking styles and attitudes that are often part of personality disorders and self-handicapping strategies. In many cases, this plays a central role in depression, anxiety, phobias, and mal-adaptive decision making- both in relationships and in career choices"

Doctorate Abstract Dissertation:

The current investigation was prompted by the pervasive phenomenon whereby women adopt educational and career goals which appear inappropriately low in comparison to their abilities. It appears that a large percentage of these intellectual women engage in self-sabotaging behaviors such as procrastination, denigration, and de-valuation with respect to their careers. Fear of success (FOS) has served as a vehicle for the study of women's achievement motivation and related women's issues. The present study examined the relationship between procrastination and FOS. The author hypothesized that (a) there is a positive correlation between FOS and procrastination, (b) there are differences in levels of FOS-and career procrastination between employed and unemployed women, and  (c)  in  contrast  to  the  third hypothesis,


there are no differences in levels of procrastination and in FOS between mothers and women who do not have children. The results of this investigation fully support the first hypothesis: a significant positive correlation was found between FOS and both general and career procrastination. The higher the FOS, the more women tend to procrastinate in their daily life and in their careers. Also, it was found that women who are employed fear success significantly less than women who are unemployed. Finally, no differences in levels of procrastination or in FOS were found between mothers and women who are not mothers. Implications in the clinical-therapeutic realm, such as clinical interventions that might promote greater career involvement and progress among women, are discussed.
