Anna O. Levin is a clinical psychologist at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. In her practice, Levin uses cognitive, behavioral and bio-behavioral (mind-body) techniques. Her aim is to support patients, their caregivers and families as they navigate the challenges of cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. These challenges may include making treatment decisions and communicating with medical providers, managing symptoms and side effects, and finding ways to enhance quality or meaning in life in the context of a cancer diagnosis.
Levin earned her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from The Ohio State University and completed American Psychological Association-approved internship and fellowship programs in the Palo Alto VA Healthcare System Behavioral Medicine service. Her research interests include the development, evaluation and dissemination of psycho-oncology interventions, with a particular focus on strategies for enhancing relationship and sexual functioning.
