Marjorie Schwartz, PhD

Psychologist

Professional statement

I work best with people who have been struggling with difficulties in relationships, work, or are somehow dissatisfied with their lives, and have reached a point when they realize something needs to change. Many of my patients are bright and creative people who know they are capable of deeper satisfaction than they currently experience. Using compassion, wisdom, humor, and a good dose of intuition, I aim to help people get out of their own way and move towards creating lives that feel more genuinely satisfying. My approach is eclectic - borrowing from psychodynamic approaches, Buddhist ideas, and cognitive behavioral strategies - where nonjudgment is paramount and curiosity is encouraged. I believe therapy should be interactive, so while I listen with full attention, I am also responsive and involved. I work with adults and couples of all ages, including people in crisis and people with more persistent and challenging difficulties. In addition to my doctoral training, I've received specialized training in short-term psychotherapy and dialectical behavioral therapy. I've also worked extensively as a teacher and supervisor, lecturing internationally and coaching other therapists on how to listen more skillfully. I recognize how challenging it can be to share one's private struggles with a stranger, and I am extremely sensitive and respectful of my patients and each of their unique processes. I've found that many of my patients have come to look forward to their appointments because therapy has become a sort of sacred time when they can connect with themselves and connect to the present moment. From that space, much truth emerges. I feel extremely grateful to be doing this work and very much look forward to meeting you.

Dr. Schwartz is the first therapist I've seen and I'm very impressed. She's calming, insightful and adds enough structure to the conversation to make both micro and macro-progress without hindering what I want to discuss. I'd highly recommend her to anyone.

As someone new to therapy, I had my questions and reservations, but felt comfortable and relaxed the minute I walked in for my first session. Marjorie is thoughtful and genuine; she listens intently and responds with intention, empathy andsometimes a bit of humor. I feel very fortunate and grateful to be working with her.
