Jonathan Levin is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Pennsylvania and also has temporary license for reciprocity in the state of New Jersey. Jonathan received his Bachelor’s Degree from The University of Michigan in 1991 and his Masters of Social Work from The University of Illinois at Chicago in 1998.
Jonathan has had a wide variety of clinical experience with different aged populations including children, adolescents, adults and the elderly for over 20 years in a variety of settings (schools, private agencies and in private practice). From working with the elderly in poverty stricken areas of Chicago to being a school social worker working with students with emotional difficulties, his broad clinical training using a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Psychodynamic, Narrative Therapy and Family Systems approaches accelerates positive outcomes.
Jonathan has had his own private practice for the last 14 years, and exclusively seeing clients online for the last 6 years. He works online in private practice and with students who attend online schools in Pennsylvania providing emotional and behavioral support. His clinical style with teens and families has been recognized by his medical colleagues as a unique ability to engage with compassion and empathy while helping them achieve their mental wellness goals.
Jonathan also took time away from his practice to travel to Sierra Leone during the Ebola crisis. It was there that he worked with citizens providing training to help them deal with the current crisis, and to train them to provide social service support to their communities. Jonathan is still connected to this project and provides mentorship and training online to many Sierra Leoneans.
Jonathan believes that each one of his clients has the ability to make the changes and growth that they are seeking. He believes it is the aim in therapy to empower the client and to help tell their story and learn to believe in their full potential.
Jonathan currently lives in Israel with his family and enjoys walks with his 3 dogs, running, and time with his family.
