Laura Levin, Ph.D., ABPP is the Director of Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, Coordinator of Psychiatry Residents Program in Couple and Family Therapy and a Board Certified Couple and Family Psychologist on staff at The Family Institute at Northwestern University. Dr. Levin’s work with younger children involves play, while her work with adolescents and adults is more focused on “talk therapy.” Through play therapy, children in her practice often enjoy gaining understanding of themselves, their lives and their relationships. Dr. Levin works with adolescents and adults to find healthy ways of expressing themselves, while her focus with parents is to understand, support and advocate for their child.
