Professional statement

Dr. Christopher Schadt is a licensed clinical psychologist practicing in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles where he provides individual and couples therapy to adults of all ages. Many of Dr. Schadt's clients are thoughtful and introspective in their approach to therapy. They come with a strong desire to understand the patterns and dynamics at play in their relationships – whether it be within a romantic relationship, a parent/family dynamic, or a challenging relationship with a boss. Together, Dr. Schadt and his clients explore how their challenges in relationships can leave them with feelings of anger, depression, anxiety, perfectionism, difficulty with assertiveness and setting boundaries, guilt, shame and more.

As an interpersonally trained and depth-oriented therapist, Dr. Schadt views these psychological symptoms as reflections of difficulties functioning in relationships. Dr. Schadt works with his clients to both identify the root causes of these feelings, as well as help them develop the capacity to break free from repetitive cycles, leading to greater fulfillment and happiness.  

Dr. Schadt places a strong emphasis on creating an inclusive, warm and collaborative therapeutic alliance. He is currently offering both in-person and telehealth sessions, as well as hybrid schedules for clients who need greater flexibility in accessing care.  


Message to clients

I believe that interpersonal problems require interpersonal solutions. It is for this reason that while theory, training and interventions are vitally important, research shows that time and time again the quality and strength of the relationship between the therapist and the client is the most important factor in making therapy successful.

As therapists, we invite clients into the tremendously difficult task of entering into the therapy process with honesty, transparency and vulnerability; I believe it is necessary for myself as the therapist to do the same. In my work, I attempt to bring those values into how I interact with clients in the pursuit of forming a real and genuine relationship which will serve as the foundation for growth and change.

I believe that the right therapist for you is out there, but I know how overwhelming and frustrating that search can be. If you think that you and I might be a good fit for one another, I encourage you to reach out so that we can speak further and explore the possibility of working together.

Therapist's note

Due to the significant burden placed on mental health providers by health insurance companies, I unfortunately do not bill insurance directly and am not in-network with any health insurance company. I do understand that this may make accessing psychotherapy more difficult and I am committed to doing what I can to decrease the barriers that may stand in the way of you receiving care. If you have a PPO insurance plan, you likely have out-of-network benefits that may cover a significant portion of the cost. I am happy to help you understand and leverage your out-of-network benefits to supplement the cost of treatment. As a part of accessing your benefits I will also provide you with regular receipts (aka “Superbills”) which you can provide to your insurance to receive reimbursement for the costs of therapy.
