Idil Levitas, MA, LMFTA
I work with couples, individual adults and teens, and families from a client-centered, relational, and strengths-based approach. I welcome clients who are seeking couples therapy to address any of a variety of issues, including relational distress, perpetual conflicts, communication difficulties, decreased emotional or sexual intimacy, and navigating through life transitions.
Other clinical issues I address with individuals, couples, and families include anxiety, depression, substance use and addiction recovery, grief and loss, shame, reducing stress, and healing and growth related to sexuality and gender identity. Supporting clients as they cope with vulvovaginal pain conditions is a focus of mine, as well as supporting girls and young women and their families as they come of age. I work with LGBTQ+, gender queer, and gender non-conforming clients, and am poly and kink friendly.
I believe it’s important to honor the cultural identities of my clients–age, race, class, nationality, gender, ethnicity–and to empower clients to utilize cultural strengths in our work towards their goals in therapy. I also strive to be attentive to how systemic oppression, privilege, and power impact my clients’ lives and intersect with the issues that we address together. I hold a Master’s degree in Couple and Family Therapy from Antioch University-Seattle, and a Bachelor’s degree from Wesleyan University, Connecticut.
