Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My experience as a Marriage and Family Therapist includes helping a wide range of clients. I can help clients work on their emotional challenges either in short-term solution-focused counseling, or in longer-term psychodynamic psychotherapy. In addition to my private psychotherapy practice I’ve had the opportunity to work as a clinician in non-profit organizations that provide mental health care services to the less advantaged population in Southern California. Although my work emphasizes on working with children, adolescents, couples and families, my extensive background in business management (MBA with emphasis in Behavior in Organizations) makes my services unique to those who seek career and business growth, or need to examine career options through personal growth, exploring life purpose at a deeper level. I’ve also helped management teams and served as mediator and business coach in several companies. I am bilingual and can conduct therapy sessions both in English and Farsi.

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.
