Pamela M. Levy, M.A., MFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
License # LMFT 42958
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) in the state of California who has been practicing psychotherapy for nearly 15 years, and I own and operate a private psychotherapy practice in San Mateo, California.
My path to becoming a licensed therapist has taken some time and seen some lengthy tangents. Along the way I’ve been a teacher, wife, mother, and volunteer, all experiences that have shaped my outlook on life and my current work.
Before opening my private practice, I worked in both middle and elementary schools and I spent six years practicing psychotherapy in a non-profit clinic. During my formal training as a therapist, I counseled diverse populations in a variety of settings, counseled individuals, couples, and families, and facilitated groups of children and adults.
Each client who comes into my office can expect to be treated with respect and compassion. From your first contact with me, I will be determined to help you find the services you need and the help you seek. I personally return all phone calls and e-mails in a timely fashion. I offer a free consultation in order to answer questions and give you the opportunity to make a considered decision about choosing me as your therapist. In the event you find we aren’t a good fit, I provide referrals to colleagues who may better suit your needs.
I am connected to my community of fellow therapists through a consultation network that I access on a regular basis. I am a member in good standing of two professional organizations, and I routinely acquire more units of continuing education than that required by the state licensing board.
My goal as a therapist is to create a relationship with clients based on mutual honesty and respect, as well as knowledge and compassion. I will strive to ensure you feel heard and supported, learn new coping skills, and begin letting go of behaviors that aren’t serving you so you can move forward in life with confidence that you are on the right path for you.
