INTERNET (Video-Chat) & PHONE SESSIONS AVAILABLE. Within 5 miles radius of Beverly Hills there are currently only 10 BOARD-CERTIFIED CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGISTS and Dr. Levine is one of them! It is difficult enough to select a competent and experienced PSYCHOLOGIST from the listings of so many different types of "therapists," "counselors" and "psychotherapists" (NONE of which are the same as as a "Psychologist"). It is unlikely that you would ever purposely select a physician who lacked Board Certification in their specialty area. In a similar manner, the American Board of Professional Psychology ("ABPP") awards Board-Certified status only to PSYCHOLOGISTS (the highest professional credential in clinical psychology) who pass their rigorous credentials review and comprehensive written and oral examination. Look for the letters "ABPP" after a psychologist's degree as evidence that they are indeed Board-Certified. After earning his Ph.D. degree at Hofstra University in NY, Dr. Levine then completed a 2-year Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) at the prestigious Temple University Medical School in Philadelphia. Dr. Levine was also honored to be among a select group of doctors to have served on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Behavior Therapy & Experimental Psychiatry, one the pre-eminent research journals in the field. After moving to LA in 2012, Dr. Levine served as a Psychologist at the UCLA School of Medicine and opened a private practice in both Beverly Hills and at Cedars-Sinai Medical Tower. Prior to moving to LA, Dr Levine had previously served as the Chief Psychologist at Mt. Sinai South Nassau Medical Center in New York. He is currently licensed as a psychologist in California, New York and Hawaii.
