My personal objective is to help people identify and resolve the issues that brought them to therapy. While my theoretical background is largely psychodynamic, I am mindful that all individuals are unique and are respected as such. We work together on what matters; you. Life is a journey to be shared. Welcome!

Linda Levinson, CT, CDCA (therapist): I appreciate the clarification. What I hear you saying is that you sense that you two are not on the same page with your wants and needs from each other. Did you send the letter you had written to him? If so, did you definitively end the relationship?
