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, Florida and Hawaii.
