Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you having problems in your marriage? Arguing, criticism, blaming - or trust issues, jealousy, struggling to rebuild trust after an affair? Is your partner unwilling to make the changes you want them to make? Do you feel misunderstood, frustrated, and not sure how to move forward? I specialize in helping couples communicate more effectively, rebuild trust and restore feelings of love and respect. With enthusiasm, warmth and a great sense of humor, I can offer you and your partner practical guidance based on cutting-edge relationship research that will help you repair your specific relationship problems. Not sure that you want couples therapy and would prefer individual counseling? Do you need help dealing with a personal issue that is affecting your relationship? I provide individual counseling that can help you better understand yourself and your relationship. I'm also an Adjunct Professor at Pepperdine University and enjoy teaching graduate students to become highly effective and compassionate therapists. Call or e-mail me today with any questions. I'm happy to talk to you to figure out what counseling option is best for you.

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.
