Joshua Schwartz

I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from The Wright Institute. I have worked as a clinical psychologist for many years with a diverse population of families, children and adolescents in both K-8 and high schools settings. I also maintain a private practice in San Francisco, seeing a broad range of adult individuals and couples. In addition, I have supervised numerous clinical psychology doctoral students. I have a thorough knowledge of clinical diagnostics, and currently work as a federal contractor with the Social Security Administration on an interdisciplinary team of medical doctors providing quality assurance reviews of state decisions on mental health disability claims. In addition, I provide quality assurance oversight of psychologists working at the VA. I also teach courses on working clinically with adolescents and children. My areas of clinical interest include: Family systems therapy, play, art and psychotherapy with children and adolescents. Research experiences include issues of coping and chronic illness, memory across the lifespan and learning and plasticity in neuronal networks.
