Roger Schwarz, JD, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Los Angeles, CA
Online & In-Person
You know you’ve found the right therapist when you feel heard and understood.
The path to achieve that is to work with me to heal your relationship with your Self.
Roger offers group couple and individual therapy together with individual, couple, family and family-business therapy. See his website rogerschwarz.com for what makes him uniquely suited to this discipline.
Psychotherapy is not just about how you feel. Relieving suffering is a major objective of course. It is also about a realistic search into who you are and who you want to be. It is about developing solutions and practicing them regularly in a safe environment.
Roger evolved an approach that avoids judging and blaming. It combines compassion and truth-telling in an active collaboration with clients. They come to make sense of thinking, feeling and behaving in ways that resulted in suffering, of themselves and often, those they love.
He shows them how to deal with the world as it is – having to do for example with interpersonal business and personal relationships around money, sex, politics or religion. He invites them to wake up to the parts of them selves they don’t like and then how to repair and cherish them. The words them and selves are words he uses separately to emphasize that the key to psychotherapy is knowing one’s self, and how that self ticks, so that one can know others and how they tick.
Clients learn about reactive experiences that aren’t an authentic expression of who they are. They learn how to regulate their body-mind systems to manage reactivity and relieve suffering. They learn to read themselves and their mates and then employ communication and other skills to avoid conflict or distancing and instead, foster compassion and understanding. They access wisdom they never knew they had.
