Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
The focus of our work together is to expand self-awareness and promote deep self-transformation. This work is rooted primarily in a moment-to-moment encounter with your own authentic experience and in the relationship between us. Our work draws upon: traditional methods of psychoanalysis (life narrative, in-depth exploration of dreams, examining your family of origin, emotional and relationship difficulties, and exploring the intersubjective field between us); psycho-synthesis; visualization; and spiritual inquiry. Though our work together I can help you to recognize, explore and heal the deep dimensions of your experience-your physical, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual identity, and deepen your personal and professional participation in the world.

Donna Yorke, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Temecula, CA

I’ve been in private practice in Temecula since 1990. I work with individuals, couples and families on a variety of issues, using a straight-forward approach to problem solving. While I listen with empathy, I am an “active” therapist, meaning I make suggestions, give direction and homework to partner with my clients so they can solve their problems in a timely, effective manner.
