Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I use compassion and acceptance to provide a safe place for clients to process issues important to them; meeting clients where they are emotionally and spiritually so that I can accompany them on their current journey in life. I provide a structured environment and interactive therapy session which focuses on the client's agenda. As a therapist, I draw from different therapeutic approaches appropriate to the situation. When working with individuals, families or couples, I feel it is important to look at the individual - their personal story, thought patterns, and behavioral strengths - as well as their relationships with others. I have a Master of Science in Counselor Education degree and a Master of Public Health degree, as well as training and experience in cultural diversity. I can coordinate my client's care with other mental health and medical professionals when requested. I enjoy working with individuals, families and couples - helping people through the changes life brings. People possess inner strength and my task is to help them learn to access it. Each client is unique and I look forward to meeting and working with you. Please call to explore working together.

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.
