Rachel Levine, PhD




Clinical Psychologist

Description of Practice/Services Offered

I provide psychotherapy to adults and adolescents. I treat a broad range of psychological challenges including anxiety, depression, traumatic stress, and emotional dysregulation, and have a particular interest in helping individuals develop meaningful relationships and navigate family, social and work-related stressors. I am an integrative therapist and utilize interpersonally oriented psychodynamic psychotherapy combined with CBT and other evidence-based practices. I collaborate with my clients to find the most effective treatment venues.

I worked for several years as a supervising psychologist at the Women’s Health Project at St. Luke’s hospital before the clinic was closed. My work focused on working with individuals who experienced complex and developmental trauma many of whom struggled with substance use issues as well. This is an area I continue to focus on in my private practice as well as broader women’s mental health issues including pre and postnatal anxiety and depression, parenting concerns, and other life cycle stressors. I particularly enjoy working with young adults who are navigating new challenges in relationships and career. I work extensively with men and women from Orthodox and Hassidic Jewish backgrounds.
