I've been seeing Dr. Levinton for 2+ years now and I've thrown a lot at him. Without exception he's been right there with me, helpful in sorting it all out and, even more impressively, helping me manage my complicated life. I recommend him highly to anyone struggling or seking help. And you should know he actually answers his own phone, finds that extra time when it's needed, returns calls and emails promptly. Not just from me but from doctors, insurance companies, my family, everyone. He's never dropped the ball for even a second.

The Bigger Picture--As a health care professional, I received a recommendation from a friend who had worked with Dr. Levinton earlier in his career. Although I was a bit skeptical, the friend suggested Dr. Levinton has a particular ability to see things from "The Big Picture," or "three-dimensionally." (Maybe this has to do with the fact that he studied architecture earlier in his career.)

Despite my skepticism, I was heavy-hearted because of some relationship losses, panic attacks, and persistent physical health issues which my medical doctors could not fully resolve to my satisfaction. So, I decided to give Dr. Levinton a try. From the first meeting, Dr. Levinton was very cordial, pleasant, showed strong interest in my well-being, empathic, held me in high regard, gave me some psychiatrist referrals, asked for and received copies of my medical records from my physicians , and answered every email and phone call from me promptly. He drew up a treatment plan with specific treatments to directly address my issues, always checking in with me, and explaining to me what each treatment was.

Dr. Levinton was always present with me, consulted and worked with me interactively to help me process my losses with the view of what I could take away from my life experiences while deepening my insight. I can't think of enough positive things to say about this psychologist. After about six months, he helped me turn my life around, and now that my work with him is done, I gently urge anyone who needs a helpful hand to see things from a wider perspective, go see Dr. Levinton.

Dr. Levinton has shown outstanding commitment and diligence in his work with me. He helped me overcome some very difficult personal issues. Dr. Levinton is very caring, and shown enormous empathy for my feelings. I'm particularly impressed with his theoretical and innovative clinical interventions, and his appropriate therapeutic stance with me. Dr. Levinton is very ethical. I highly recommend him as a psychologist and as a marriage family therapist.

Dr. Levinton has helped me work through so many personal issues. I went to him for a few specific issues and am more than happy to say that they are resolved.

I would describe his style as a 'gentle depth' that effectively found my root causes of suffering.

I would highly recommend therapy with Dr. Levinton!

Maybe his prisoner research was useful for someone, not sure, but he didnt work for us. Unprofessional in style and unconventional and controversial techniques.

Would recommend that you keep searching. He definitely did not work for me and my wife. He makes recommendations about people he has never met and does not promote transparency. He takes steps that other therapists find highly unusual.....keep looking, there are many therapists out there. Good luck.

Dr. Levinton is honest, straight forward, and calls it like it is.

In this time of moral and ethical relitivity Dr. Levinton has the ability to cut through all of the defense mechanisms that keep us from making real and lasting progress toward becoming better human beings.

If you are interested in making real progress in your life and moving toward your goals and dreams go see Dr. Levinton!

Dr. Levinton is a rarity in the field of psychology, a thoughtful, highly intuitive person who really understands how the mind works. He doesn't just sit back and let you talk your hour away, he directs you to exactly what you need to look at to resolve your issues. If you're ready to really deal with your emotional state, he's the guy to go see. He's the real deal!

Dr. Levinton?s lengthy and career and CV speak for itself. He has worked in human development since 1968. As a patient, I found Dr. Levinton to be an exceptionally experienced psychologist with an impressive knowledge of the inner workings of the human mind and aptly able to handle an avalanche of emotions with great ease. He possesses amazing people skills. He is truly concerned and sensitive to your various individual needs. After a session with him I felt confident and ready to face the next challenge or conflict. I also learned valuable breathing, coping and relaxation techniques from him through visualization.

When it comes to Bruce Levinton, I must say ?the doctor knows best?.

I cannot think of a single positive thing to say about this man. His style is to stare at you, occasionally throw out a jab (you sound bitter; I see no evidence of what you're saying), and insist that you are a victim of sexual abuse! I have no idea where the "abuse" slant came from, it seemed he was completely clueless, had nothing useful to say and as a result was trying to pull something from the air. His home office is unpleasant, too.
