Therapist Spotlight – Jessica Levy, MSW, LCSW

What drew you to social work?

I have always enjoyed working with children, and spent five years as a teacher. I realized that I was actually more interested in mental health and social/emotional growth than I was in teaching. Becoming a therapist was one of the best decisions I ever made. It’s so rewarding, and I truly love seeing clients flourish and develop skills and insight that betters their lives. In addition to my young clients, it’s also quite fulfilling to treat adults and couples as well.

 

What makes you stand out as a therapist?

I’m really proud of my versatility and my ability to connect with people of all ages. And yes, this includes teenagers who might initially not be as enthused about starting therapy. Clients tell me they feel comfortable engaging with me, and it’s so important to me as a therapist to have these genuine connections and strong therapeutic relationships. I believe clients can sense my authenticity. I’m creative in the interventions I utilize and enjoy using games, books and role-plays in addition to traditional talk therapy.

 

What was the last thing that made you laugh or smile?

My 7-year-old stepson cracks me up all the time! I love watching him dance, or show off his gymnastics moves. He also says some pretty philosophical things too, which can be unintentionally humorous coming out of the mouth of a little kid. It’s awesome to see him exploring his sense of self and what he believes in.
