Sarah Levinson received her MSW at SUNY Buffalo and her JD from Columbia University School of Law. Sarah has developed a specialty in ACT and CBT for anxiety (panic, trauma, social anxiety, agoraphobia, OCD, body image and eating disorders) and mood challenges. Sarah’s expertise in ERP and exposure/experiential based CBT/ACT is particularly relevant for anxiety disorders that have not responded to conventional intellectually based interventions and traditional talk therapies.
Sarah specializes in culturally aware sexuality and relationship dynamics across a wide variety of relationship structures, including navigating the complexities of dating, long term relationships and consensual non-monogamy (CNM). She works extensively with communication, intimacy, sexuality, BDSM, consent and infertility for individuals, couples and moresomes. She led monthly women’s CNM discussion groups for ten years in NYC. Sarah has also created and facilitated various workshops, panel discussions and podcasts on consent and CNM. She works with adults of all ages and adolescents, and is experienced with local CNM, BDSM, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, asexual and neurodivergent communities. Sarah has extensive training through the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy in both the sex therapy (STC) and gender and sexuality (PCGS) divisions.
Sarah also has career counseling expertise from her prior career as an attorney and legal recruiter, with a focus on professional decisions and transitions, office politics and executive-level management strategy. She understands difficult personalities, high stress environments and hierarchical power dynamics.
Sarah’s passions include knitting, burning man, backpacking and kundalini yoga.
