Mel Schwartz is a psychotherapist, marriage counselor, author, 2xTEDx speaker, podcaster and leadership consultant. He earned his MSW from Columbia University in NYC and Master of Philosophy from Lancaster University in England.
Mel has enjoyed several defining moments in his life, which have enabled him to live the life of the self-actualization that he espouses.In mid-life, in business and with two young children, Mel had been living the life he had planned. Yet, he felt a desire for deeper fulfillment, longing for a calling with far deeper purpose. In one of his defining moments, Mel chose to welcome the uncertainty that lay ahead as he embarked on an entirely new path.
He closed his business, applied to and enrolled in graduate school to follow his emerging passion–serving others as a psychotherapist. Mel became excited by new ways of thinking that propelled him to transcend the limiting protocols taught in graduate school. He began to immerse himself in emergent ways of thinking coming from quantum physics, philosophy and other areas beyond the field of psychology. This evolving perspective enabled him to forge a singular new therapeutic approach from which to assist his clients.
