Amir Levine, Ph.D., LCSW-R

Co-Founder & Clinical Director
Hello, my name is Amir and I’m glad you’re here! My goal in co-creating Bhava was to build a nurturing environment and a healing home for both therapists and clients alike. Guiding the professional growth of our team of amazing therapists and the healing process for our clients we have the privilege to serve is one of my greatest joys in life.

For me, working in the field of mental health is a calling, and while incredibly rewarding, it is a role that is not without its challenges. Additionally, it is a role with unlimited learning and growth potential. Despite having decades of experience in organizational leadership and management, direct clinical work and clinical supervision, program creation, multiple presentations at national conferences, and in my day to day role as Co-Founder and Clinical Director, I never stop learning, growing and evolving. It is this passion for this field and the growth inherent in it, that I hope to pass on to all I have the privilege to work with.

Well-versed in many psychotherapeutic theories and models of care, I have learned most from the courageous clients that I have had the honor to work with throughout my 25+ years of practice. My approach to care is eclectic, holistic and collaborative. I believe that therapists and the clients alike flourish only when they are genuinely supported and cared for. It is most gratifying for me to be able to support our team of therapists in honing their innate strengths and in cultivating their unique therapeutic style and voice. Over the years, I have witnessed many individuals overcome tremendous pain and challenges with dedication, commitment, awareness and compassionate support.

The goal of therapy is to provide the conditions for clients to connect to their innate wisdom and inner resources and are empowered to have an active role in their treatment process. I greatly value equality, diversity and inclusion and fully enjoy working with a range of diverse clients from various backgrounds and the LGBTQ+ community.

I completed my PhD at Yeshiva University, I am certified in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and currently completing a training program in Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy.
