Brooke Schwartz, LMSW received her Master’s Degree in Social Work at the Columbia University School of Social Work (CUSSW). While in her master’s program, Brooke was a fellow of the Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Training Program under the supervision of Dr. André Ivanoff. Brooke received intensive training in DBT through Behavioral Tech, LLC and practiced at the NYU Child Study Center for her clinical internship. In addition to practicing DBT, Brooke has experience treating anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Exposure Therapy, depression with Behavioral Activation, and body-focused repetitive behaviors with Habit Reversal Therapy.
Prior to starting a Master's Degree, Brooke worked as a Research Coordinator at NYU in the Center for Early Childhood Health and Development within the Department of Population Health. There, Brooke supported the research and implementation of ParentCorps, a family-focused, school-based intervention program that promotes high-quality learning environments for Pre-K children and teaches evidence-based practices to promote social, emotional, and behavioral regulation skills.
Brooke is passionate about delivering evidence-based interventions and learning about how the therapeutic alliance influences progress in therapy. She follows her clients’ leads and always welcomes humor when it asks to enter the room.
Brooke was born in Texas, raised in Connecticut, and spent four chilly and wonderful years in Montreal (although she remains a proponent of New York-style bagels). In her free time, Brooke enjoys writing, trying her hand at plant parenting, and being an aunt to the sweetest goldendoodle named Lady.
