Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
In my psychotherapy practice I work with individual adults, couples, and families and help my clients to overcome emotional distress, anxiety, depression, problems related to weight and eating, relationship problems, life-changes, and other challenges.

I view psychotherapy as a creative process through which a person discovers their hidden potential to heal and grow. In my work I focus on the transformative process and help people access their depths, and bring forth their inner strengths and abilities. My integrative approach is beneficial for psychological healing because it recognizes and honors the human being as a whole. My methods are eclectic, and I take into careful account each person’s specific needs and benefits. When my clients are so inclined, I use creative and expressive art techniques (i.e. painting, writing) along with psychodynamic and cognitive approaches.

My office is conveniently located in Woodland Hills and has a peaceful and quiet atmosphere.

Featured Therapist 

Kelly Duggan Shearer, M.A.
Patricia Ravitz, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
San Rafael, CA

My therapeutic style is non-judgmental, supportive, and interactive. My work is based on establishing a safe environment where trust can grow. I view symptoms as a way to call attention to unrecognized needs and unexpressed feelings. The goals of treatment include; learning to identify and express emotions, learning to set appropriate boundaries, developing skills such as self-soothing and impluse control and improving self-esteem.
