Despite what the movies show us, being a couple and being in a relationship is not easy.
The biggest challenge is communication. We all do it, yet it is not easy to communicate our thoughts and feelings in a way that the other person not only hears what you are saying, but also understands what you are saying to them.
When the other person does not respond the way you had anticipated them to do, anger and resentment can build leading to a cycle of continued miscommunication and the feelings associated with not being heard and understood.
In my experience working with couples, combined with my education and training, I have learned that if 2 people have the same ultimate goal, then my job is to help them understand how to communicate in a different way so that each partner is heard and understood.

Dr. Levey has helped my husband and I improve our communication and learn what is at the root of our arguments.
Great listener and quite resourceful! Would recommend as a couple’s therapist!
Dr. Levy is a very kind person who spent time listening to our concerns and gave advice and suggestions that were appropriate to the situations that we were in. He is very respectful, however his sense of humor makes him very easy to talk to.
Dr Levey is very Good and I highly recommend him
Dr. Levey is kind, empathetic, and easy to talk to. We came to him during a difficult time in our relationship, and he has been nothing but supportive and helpful. He took the time in the beginning to listen to us and understand what we needed help with, and he enabled us to communicate better with each other in a short period of time. Not to mention he’s funny and warm and just generally a cool guy. We can’t speak highly enough of him!
This is my first time doing anything like this but I feel comfortable and confident that this will lead to a positive outcome.
Dr Levey is fantastic! Very good listener and always makes himself available. He has helped calm my fears and think logically.
Dr. Levey is thoughtful, understanding and patient. He’s realistic and helps guide you in the right direction. I recommend him for anyone going through something!
Dr. Levey has helped my fiancé and I substantially in only a few sessions. He understands the both of us and speaks objectively. I would recommend him to my peers.
