Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I use a variety of practices and therapies, including: Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, EFT (Emotional Focused Couples Therapy) and Motivational Interviewing. I'm here to help you to figure out where your pain lies, where you tend to stumble and to work collaboratively with you to move into a space of insight, wellbeing and empowerment. My private practice is located in both Long Beach and West Hollywood. I work with Individuals, couples, and teens. My approach is always affirming, non-judgmental, and strengths focused. My experience includes trauma recovery, substance abuse, mood disorders and building healthy relationships. Additionally, I have worked with transgender, gender non-conforming, queer, gay, lesbian and bisexual youth and adults.

Donna J. Shanahan M.A.

Donna J. Shanahan, MA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 
Pasadena, CA 91101

I am a Marriage and Family therapist in private practice. I work with individuals, couples, and families in short and long-term psychotherapy. We work together to explore memories of the relational dynamics of the individual’s family, the feelings those dynamics created for the individual as a child, and how the individual now relates to those feelings and memories.
