David Schwartz, LMFT, is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#87261) who works with individuals, couples and families in Westlake Village, California. His private practice focuses on relationship issues with couples and individuals. Whether it's communication difficulties with a spouse or family communication issues, his goal is to work on helping clients have better connections with each other. In addition to his private practice, David has extensive experience working with teenagers, having facilitated hundreds of group therapy sessions at Beachside Teen Treatment Center in Malibu and Hillcrest Adolescent Treatment Center in Agoura Hills.
In his work with adolescents, David is committed to helping them prepare themselves for a healthy future. Many teenagers don't have the perspective to understand when they are engaging in behaviors that may create long-term harm to themselves. Whether it's drug use, self-harm, or neglecting their education, teenagers may be harming their futures without fully grasping the potential damage they are inflicting on themselves. David works to help adolescents understand their value in the world in an effort to aid them in finding their path toward success in their lives.
