At CLARITY, we believe psychotherapy should be attuned to you. While many of our patients choose long-term insight-oriented therapy, a large subset come in seeking brief, focused treatment to address a specific problem or goal. Just as our society is goal-oriented and fast-paced, therapy can be too. Many issues can be addressed in 12 to 16 weeks. Our approach involves an initial session to tailor a treatment plan that uniquely addresses your goals followed by exploration, support, and gentle challenging to achieve your objectives - your clarity. Specialties: anxiety, depression, self-esteem/identity, relationships, health/weight management, LGBT, couples/families, adolescents, adults. Whether we work together in psychotherapy or in therapeutically-oriented assessment, at CLARITY, we provide a safe environment where you will feel supported, respected, and understood.

Psychological assessment is often a first step in the healing process. Psychiatrists sometimes request comprehensive diagnostic assessments to refine diagnosis before prescribing medication. Lawyers, advocates, or employers seek psychological evaluations during hiring or legal proceedings. Doctors may request pre-surgical screenings for bariatric surgery, LVAD placement, among other surgeries. Dr. Levenson is a skilled diagnostician and forensic expert. Dr. Levenson is an Adjunct Professor and Clinical Supervisor at Yeshiva University.
In addition to providing services in midtown Manhattan and the Hudson Valley, Dr. Levenson travels to detention centers and to medical hospitals to provide immigration or presurgical evaluations and/or bedside psychotherapy. Early intervention is often effective for patients who are experiencing stress related to a medical diagnosis, early signs of postpartum depression, pain management, or problems with adherence to medical protocols.
