Services
Psychotherapy EMDR Hypnotherapy Neurofeedback Art Psychotherapy ****************************** EMDR is one of my most special services as, in addition to Psychotherapy, it relieves so many issues in a brief period of time, compared to traditional therapies. (Such as PTSD, and other traumas, Anxiety (including phobias and Panic Disorder), Addiction and much more. As a Marriage Family Therapist, I find it beneficial to work, when possible, and when desired, in a relational way to support each other. (This is of course, only when the individual coming in desires that). ****************************** ART PSYCHOTHERAPY is a special kind of therapy in that it not only helps an individual (doesn't matter the age) access information that is difficult to talk about. It is especially effective with families where communication might be an issue and there are different ages involved. ****************************** HYPNOTHERAPY is special in that the client might respond better to that, if they choose. The client is always in control in this effective method of incorporating more positive messages and avenues that are beneficial for a more fulfilling life. ****************************** NEUROFEEDBACK is not just used for disorders (such as depression, sleep problems and ADHD) but also to help "any" individual try to achieve OPTIMAL BRAIN FUNCTIONING. Whether this be to function even better than you are now in sports, your job and other areas of your life. We're all unique and I am glad that I have these different, effective, options for my clients.

Barbara Witney, MA
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.
