My Approach to Helping

My name is Dr. Audrey Levy, LMFT, and I live on a houseboat. I am experienced in helping my clients deal with issues such as Anxiety, Depression, Loss and Grief Recovery, Substance Abuse, Crisis Counseling, and Stress Reduction. My primary approach is Solution focused therapy, and I accomplish this through Compassion focused therapy, Eclectic therapy, Emotionally focused therapy, Family therapy, Grief therapy, Meditation mindfulness, and Positive psychology. "I typically work with individuals, couples, and teenagers. Issues mainly focus on Anxiety, Depression, Loss and Grief Recovery, Substance Abuse, Crisis Counseling, and Stress Reduction. My grieving clients experience closure through writing letters to their loved ones who have died. This letter writing is effective for all forms of loss. Reading the letters aloud is very healing as it encourages acceptance, and permits moving on to build a life filled with love and laughter.

As a Doctor of Psychology and psychotherapist for 40+ years, I've dealt with my own grief and loss by writing a book series, ""The Adventures of the Angel Oleo."" For all of my clients, I am currently writing ""The Dog Bible for Humans""!" I provide a calm, empathetic, and nurturing environment where you will feel heard, and most importantly, understood. Together we will work on ways to help you understand your feelings and compulsions. "In my early years, I witnessed and experienced my father’s old-fashioned method of discipline, which was a brief but certainly emphatic whipping with a red belt. His loud, frequent yelling was not music to my family’s ears. As an adult, I witnessed and experienced drug abuse, estrangement from my family, disinheritance by my parents, a 20-year union with a now-deceased alcoholic neuropsychologist, an attempted rape by an emotionally disturbed teenage male, and was told of three alleged family suicides, among other things. Pretty much the laundry list of dysfunctional family dynamics and co-dependency.

Despite all that, or perhaps because of all that, I like to say, I became a licensed Marriage and Family therapist and earned my Doctorate in Psychology. I also pioneered a journal writing method to help myself and others heal old wounds — finding hope, recovery, and redemption." Each session, we go over the events that influenced the client's mood and behaviors and from that content, a goal evolves for the following session. I ask people to tell me, in their own words, what brought them to me. Then we go through their current symptoms, health history, family history, work history, relationship history, highest level of education, substance use history, trauma history, risk assessment, therapy goals, and a treatment plan.
