Rajani Venkatraman Levis
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist & Certified Trauma Specialist - MS, PPS, CTS, MFT
I feel fortunate to be able to integrate my education, skills and passion into my work as a therapist. I remain grateful for the honor and privilege of being entrusted with your fears, hopes and dreams. I am in awe of the growth and healing that occurs in our work together, and like you, I too, am immeasurably enriched by it.
I believe that life is punctuated by a series of challenges and transitions that set the stage for our growth. Sometimes, we can become burdened by negative interpretations of ourselves, or feel stumped by a challenge. My gift lies in helping each client to find and reclaim the unique healing impulse of their own psyche. Keeping in mind the uniqueness of each individual, I aim to honor your personal needs. Beginning with short-term tools to address the immediacy and urgency of the symptoms that have brought you in, I engage you in a co-crafted journey of discovery.
I find EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to be an invaluable companion on the healing journey. I also have the benefit of drawing from a wide pool of theoretical positions including Psychodynamic, Psychoanalytic, Cognitive Behavioral, Systems Approach, Solution Focused, and Existential theories.
I enjoy weaving in the rich wisdom traditions of the world that allow us to have hope during the dark times. I also find it meaningful to bring in the wisdom of the body. Mindfulness techniques and guided imagery can be another powerful tool for many clients.
I look forward to facilitating your unique journey to wholeness.
