As a clinical psychologist, I help people overcome anxiety (general anxiety, panic, OCD), depression, trauma, negativity, and anger, as well as develop better self-awareness and insight, self-compassion, and more productive and fulfilling life. I do this with a cognitive-behavioral theoretical framework utilizing techniques that include motivational interviewing, psycho-education, mindfulness, positive psychology, and meditation – all science-driven approaches to mental health. Because I use a cognitive-behavioral framework, I prefer working with people twelve and older, as brain development beginning at age twelve is more conducive to cognitive-behavioral work.
The truth is that change can sometimes be uncomfortable and unpleasant, but the fact that you are considering making changes in your life is the first big step. The truth is also that if you approach change with curiosity instead of fear, the feelings will be less uncomfortable and less unpleasant. The door to your future is in front of you. Go ahead and open the door and be curious. I am waiting for you.

Happier Living was a lifesaver for me today. By some miracle I was able to see Dr. Schwartz at the last minute today to help with some pretty big changes in my life recently. She was very kind, attentive, a true professional, but also very fun and relatable!
