About  Irene Alvarez-Schwartz

I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist who believes in the human potential to heal

from trauma, develop psychological resilience from adversity, and find inner strength to

purposely move forward in life. My focus is to empower individuals, couples, and families

experiencing depression, anxiety, communication difficulties, extramarital affairs, addictions

and co-dependency or facing vulnerable life transitions. I achieve this by providing a non-

judgmental, compassionate stance, and a safe space where you feel comfortable to share your

hurt, concerns, and vulnerability, and work towards your personal or marital goals. Additionally,

I have well-rounded life experience collaborating with families with neurodivergent family

members and a deep passion for empowering couples challenged by the unique constrains of

raising neurodivergent children. I am a native Spanish speaker, have lived in different countries

as well as many regions in the United States, and feel comfortable working with people from

different cultures. I will accompany you on every step of your journey. My goal is to help you

deepen your self- and other- awareness, get in touch with your inner strength, develop

resilience from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be

in your life.
