About Me

levana_web_finalLevana Slabodnick, LISW-S

My Education:

I graduated from The Ohio State University with both a BA in psychology and a Master’s Degree in Social Work. I hold an LISW-S, which is an independent license to practice clinical social work as well as supervise social workers in training.

 My Approach:

When you feel that depression and anxiety have been affecting all areas of your life, it can be difficult to know where to turn. My approach to therapy is to provide experienced care along with compassionate and non- judgmental support. My goal is help you identify the negative thoughts that bring you down, and replace them with healthy, self- affirming thoughts. I utilize my advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to teach you the skills to overcome your challenges.

LGBTQ Inclusive Treatment:

Many members of the LGBTQ community avoid or delay treatment because of negative experiences with healthcare providers. I offer experience, knowledge and great love for the LGBTQ community and for your specific needs. I respect and honor the diversity of identities in the Queer community.

Depression and Anxiety Specialty

Depression and Anxiety are two of the most common complaints that bring people to counseling. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as an effective approach in targeting the negative, anxious thinking that is leading to your symptoms and replacing them with healthier thoughts. At your first appointment you will identify what your goals are, and I will tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs

Sexuality and Gender Specific Services

When you are struggling to come to terms with your gender identity and/or sexual orientation, needing support in coming out to family, friends and work, or need a letter in order to pursue gender affirming medical treatments, it is crucial that you work with a knowledgeable and experienced therapist. As an LGBTQ ally and advocate, I offer you both. I am proud to be listed as an approved Pride Provider through the Greater Columbus LGBTQ Health Coalition.

Student Supervision and Educational Speaking

In addition to providing direct clinical care, I offer supervision to social work professionals who require it. I consider it an honor to a part of a social worker’s professional growth and aim to provide one on one training and feedback to help you build the skills you seek.

I am also available to speak at your organization on a variety of topics that would be useful to your staff. I can participate in cultural diversity trainings to provide education about LGBTQ related topics, in particular, information about transgender issues that are becoming more in the forefront in today’s society. Call for availability and rates.

Video Counseling

Video Counseling

For a variety of reasons, it may be difficult for you to attend traditional counseling sessions in an office setting. Whether you are short on time, transportation, childcare or struggle with anxiety, you may find video counseling to be a preferable alternative. Our sessions will have the same level of care and expertise that you would expect from an office based appointment, but from the comfort of your home or office. Call me at (614)500-3194 or email me at silverpsychotherapy@gmail.com for more information or to schedule an appointment.
