Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
GET OVER IT, THEY SAY!! It's not that easy when you are feeling alone, like no one understands you or what you have been through. When you are having FLASHBACKS, NIGHTMARES, TRIGGERS, AND DISSOCIATING!! When you live with constant anxiety, depression, and physical symptoms. TRAUMA CONVERSION THERAPY is a new way to get rid of OLD PAIN! We all have different "parts of self" that help to protect us during traumatic events. Sometimes those parts can cause us pain later on in life. Together, with TCT we can relieve this. YOU ARE NOT ALONE ON THIS JOURNEY! The therapy session is yours, not mine, and we go at a pace that is comfortable for you. Let's work together to finally relieve the "Old Pain" of PTSD, TRAUMA, AND DISSOCIATIVE DISORDERS! IT'S OK TO ASK FOR HELP! Some try to say a person is weak if they seek out help through therapy, but I say seeking out therapy shows incredible strength! It is hard to ask for help, so when you do, it displays exceptional strength!

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.
