Allison Levine, LMFT, LPCC
Narrative of Services:
I have been in practice for over 18 years. About 50% of my practice primarily focuses on treating patients with: OCD, Pure O, depression, relationship issues, fear, grief, childhood issues, addictions, condependency, self esteem, anger and anxiety related disorders. I offer a variety of treatment options, experience and knowledge. My goals include helping clients achieve awareness and mindfulness, reduce symptom triggers and increase relief. I provide patients with an individualized consultation and treatment plan that includes: handouts, CBT/ERP exercises, self soothing techniques and coping skills. My therapeutic goal is to offer a safe place to work on difficult issues.
I usually see clients who are struggling with depression, anxiety or stress disorder simultaneously with an addictive disorder such as: alcohol, substance abuse, shopping, porn, food or internet addiction. I focus on unconditional regard and CBT techniques to reduce feelings of shame and increase positive self esteem, self image and self care.
Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes
I have attended years of workshops, seminars and conferences pertaining to the treatment and recovery from anxiety and OCD related disorders. I have been treating anxiety, OCD and Pure O patients for over 15 years.

My office in Burbank is close to: North Hollywood, Toluca Lake, Glendale, Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles. I have been in the area over 15 years and enjoy working with a wide variety of clients from various ethnicities, customs, religions and beliefs from all socio economic backgrounds. My door is open to everyone. “I love what I do!”
I have had the privilege of being able to work with people from many different parts of the United States and other countries. I feel it is important for me to be able to actively listen and provide relevant feedback. I offer a genuine sense of caring, openness and flexibility in the work we do and as part of the relationship and treatment.
