Dr. Lev specializes in integrating acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and Schema Therapy to address interpersonal problems and unhelpful patterns in relationships.
She is a coauthor of three books integrating ACT and Schema Therapy to help improve relationships. The first, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Interpersonal Problems, presents a complete treatment protocol for therapists working with clients who fall into unhealthy relationship patterns and helps them overcome maladaptive interpersonal behavior. The second book, The Interpersonal Problems Workbook: ACT to End Painful Relationship Patterns, combines research and evidence-based techniques for strengthening relationships. The third book, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Couples, integrates ACT and Schemas to help couples feel more satisfied and fulfilled in their relationship.
Dr. Lev has also provided supervision, workshops, and didactic trainings at The Berkeley Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies Clinic, Haight Ashbury Psychological Services, Argosy University, The Wright Institute, and at Palo Alto University. She has presented her research at regional and international conferences.
My approach to couples therapy is active and directive and offers practical skills for couples such as Nonviolent Communication, mindfulness, polyvagal regulation, and assertiveness training. We integrate interventions from Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), IMAGO Couples Therapy, Gottman Couples Therapy, Polyvagal Theory, Attachment Theory, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Schema Therapy. For your convenience, I offer online couples therapy through video or phone and have offices in San Francisco and Oakland.
