Professional statement

Special note: In this challenging time, people have even more of a need for someone to talk to about their feelings and thoughts. I'm happy to be able to offer tele-therapy to deal with how the current situation is effecting you. Even now, your goals for yourself are still important. Your struggles in life are still there. Let's talk about your challenges, your hopes, and your dreams.

Betsy Levine is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Midtown Manhattan specializing in anxiety, couples counseling, eating disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD and ADD), quarter-life crises, depression, and career issues.

Betsy’s style is eclectic, drawing upon psychodynamic methods, EFT (emotionally focused couples therapy) and some cognitive behavioral techniques. She works with her clients through an individualized approach, best suited to address each client’s concerns.

Betsy welcomes young adults, adults, and couples to her practice. She has a special interest in supporting couples and helping them strengthen their connection and happiness. Her practice is conveniently located, with access to Eastside and Westside subways.


Message to clients

I work with people who are looking to find a therapist to help them with their inner searching, an educated guide in their attempt to make sense of the world, their feelings, their situation and their life. My goal is to provide a safe space for you to work through things that block you from realizing your hopes and dreams.
If you're here, welcome. The most important question to ask yourself right now is whether I might be able to help you on your road to self-understanding, healing and growth. If so, give me a call or reach out through the contact form. We'll speak for a while and see if we should set up a time to meet.
I look forward to talking to you.
