Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been a practicing therapist for a number of years. I have worked with a variety of different clients who wish to deepen their understanding of themselves. If you have been depressed or anxious, if you have experienced panic attacks or deep sadness that you are having a difficult time shaking, this kind of personal exploration can help you. I am also a certified anger management facilitator, as well as a certified grief and bereavement counselor. Through my training and practice, I have learned tools to guide you how to deal with deep-seated issues of anger and loss.

I work with people with cultural issues of individuation. Being from another culture myself, I can draw on my own background to help people work through adjustment issues surrounding the mixing of cultures. I understand that integrating families into a new country, and bi-cultural marriages, have their own challenges.

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.
