About Beth Levine, LCSW
Hi, I’m so glad you’re interested in finding out more about me.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, having earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from the National Catholic School of Social Service, Catholic University. I have over 15 years of experience working with adults in individual and couple settings.
I specialize in couples therapy using a model called Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). It is a very effective and powerful way to work with couples to strengthen their connection and be happier together. To find out more about EFT, please click on the Couple Therapy Tab.
I earned my Certification as an Emotionally Focused Couple Therapist and Supervisor from the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy.
I also specialize in Internal Family Systems (IFS). To find out more about IFS, please click on the Individual Therapy Tab.
I am a member of:
- Greater Washington Society of Clinical Social Work
- International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy
- Clinical Social Work Association
- National Association of Social Workers
I participate in many educational opportunities to ensure continuous learning in the field of psychotherapy and I bring this knowledge to my work with clients.
My guiding principle in life and work is compassion. Together, we create a safe space that promotes reflection, understanding, and change.
I believe in therapy. I have struggled with depression, anxiety, and relationships. Now I’m happier than I’ve ever been and trust in myself to handle life’s challenges.
I am thankful to the many people who have shared their lives with me and taught me about people’s courage and capacity to heal and change.
