An experienced psychiatrist, Dr. Schwartz works with patients at his private practice in Maplewood, New Jersey.

“I apply psychoanalytic approaches flexibly to encourage individuals to identify their conflicts and vulnerabilities gradually as they are prepared to do so. My technique has been influenced and enriched by teaching and supervising other professionals, forty years of clinical practice with a wide range of patients, and my own life experiences” expressed the doctor.
