Patient Care Philosophy
I enjoy helping people who are struggling with disability, illness and other changes in their lives. My goal is to help patients and their families function as highly as possible despite their challenges, as well as, to find ways to cultivate meaning and value in their lives. I particularly enjoy working with patients who are actively engaged in their care and willing to explore new ways of approaching and coping with their challenges.
Walking, hiking, yoga, spending time with my daughters and travel to sunny places.
Coping with disability and illness, mindfulness approaches and working with couples.
Dr. Schwartz's research interests include chronic pain, the impact of disability on the family and the relationships between family responses to disability and functioning.
