Mr. Mel Schwartz, LCSW
Social Work, Certified Masters (Connecticut: 005646)

Overview
My work is focused on assisting people through life transitions such as relationship, divorce, anxiety, depression and career issues.

My approach to therapy is non-traditional in that I am singularly proactive and focus more on change and transformation, and less on reductive analysis and causes. I have come to see that most people have a good idea of why they have become who they are.The question of how do we get from here to there is the goal of my work.

I have developed a model for personal transformation which is informed by the emerging sciences. I call this process Emergent Thinking(R) which enables people to come out of the groove of old thinking and old behavior, supporting the shifts of mind that move us forward.I have encountered excellent success in helping people overcome chronic and acute struggles with anxiety and depression through this approach.

I have written a book on relationships, The Art of Intimacy, The Pleasure of Passion and am currently writing, A Shift of Mind. My work in relationships is at the core of my passion and I have developed an effective and solution oriented approach to relationship challenges. I have authored over 70 articles which can be viewed on my website, Melschwartz.com, as well as my blog, A Shift of Mind.
