Dr. Levisay is a licensed clinical psychologist in Denver, CO who works with adults struggling with a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties and stress related to parenting, career, school, adjustment concerns, and overall self-fulfillment.
Dr. Levisay is trained in several evidence-based modalities including Cognitive and Dialectical Behavior Therapies (CBT, DBT) and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT). She also draws from her extensive expertise as a neuropsychologist to help clients better understand the role of the brain in behavior and how therapy works to rewire it. Her unique approach approach focuses on three main components:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:
Learning how to identify and challenge the stressful beliefs that cause emotional suffering and lead to behaviors (addiction, isolation, troubled relationships) that impact our well-being.
Teaching clients the mechanics underlying how the brain works in order to better understand how and why we develop stressful thinking patterns and how certain therapeutic strategies can permanently rewire the brain to promote healthy and productive behavioral changes through sustainable peace of mind.
Mindfulness and Meditation:
Retraining the brain to be more present through mindfulness and meditation, facilitating our awareness of the painful, often unconscious beliefs that cause stress and suffering.
Overall, Dr. Levisay's approach is collaborative, compassionate and action-oriented. No matter what the presenting problem, her goals are to tailor treatment to each individual and to to teach a powerful, straight-forward, and life-changing set of skills that can be used to manage stressful life events long after therapy has ended.
Her office is located in southeast Denver, a mile from the University of Denver, near the I-25 / Evans exit.
