Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My background involves working with couples, children and family in a number of areas. As a License Marriage and Family Therapist, and as a divorced father, I am familiar with the difficulties faced by couples in their relationship with issues such as infidelity and the stressors of blended families including drugs and alcohol use, etc. In the case of a divorce with children the sense of loss extends to them as well. Children are often the silent victims in a divorce or custody dispute as they feel that the world around them is crumbling. They will express their inner struggle differently depending on their age and maturity, often acting out by aggressive or self-destructive behavior as a way to externalize the pain. I can help parents and children give voice to their feelings in a positive way. Divorce is a crucial time when therapy can be instrumental in helping individual/couples realize that, when feelings are suppressed and not dealt with they tend to emerge in different aspects of one’s life and can prolong suffering; in order to allow for feelings to emerge I will provide a supportive and caring environment. I have also been quite successful working with children with autism and developmental disabilities, and adolescents in need of behavior modification. My theoretical orientation (solution focused) allows me to provide results to my clients with brief therapy. Often, 3 to 8 sessions allow for significant progress, I mostly focus on issues in the present here and now, after a brief survey of the client and family’s history. I am caring attitude towards to my clients and I have a particularly good relationship with children and adolescents.

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.
