Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a licensed marital and family therapist who is dedicated to helping my clients through difficult stages and challenges in their life. My background is working with domestic violence and trauma/abuse victims/survivors - including sexual abuse - (and perpetrators, as knowing "why" and "how" is essential). I work with children from 0-11, adolescents, and adults, in individual/family/collateral therapy sessions. I am capable in social work, advocacy and case management. I can help with various relationship problems (intimate and family), addiction, conflict within yourself (depression, mood, anxiety), and uncertainty.

Featured Therapist 

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.
