Psychologist and Therapist in Northridge, California, Carly Schwartz, PsyD

Carly Schwartz, PsyD

I became a therapist in order to help people feel better and function more optimally. I assist adults, adolescents, children, families, and couples with addressing/repairing the past and developing coping skills and communication skills, in order to heal and move forward in a more positive direction.


I have experience treating depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, bipolar disorder, substance abuse/ dual diagnosis, ADHD, PTSD, self-injury, suicidality, eating disorders, and autism spectrum disorders. I am neurodiversity affirming and gender affirming. I have a strong training background in psychodynamic child play therapy as well as family therapy. I have extensive experience treating adolescent high risk behaviors . My style is relational and integrative, and I frequently draw upon psychodynamic, dialectical behavioral, and psychobiological approaches depending on the unique needs of each client . My personal areas of interest include mindfulness, attachment, and trauma recovery. I have certifications in Seeking Safety as well as Motivational Interviewing.


I graduated from Alliant International University, Los Angeles, in 2008 and have been licensed since 2011. My doctoral degree is in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis in Multicultural Community Clinical Psychology. I am committed to inclusivity, diversity, cultural competence and social justice. I have experience working in outpatient, inpatient psychiatric, residential, and juvenile detention treatment settings.
