Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel balanced and quietly empowered, on a positive path to growth and well-being. I don't know you yet, but if you are looking for therapy, I want you to know that it takes courage to accept that your life needs improvement and even more courage to take responsibility for it. We cannot change the past but we can change the future. I believe that people have a deep need to be seen and to be heard and that any challenge becomes lighter and more approachable when you have someone at your side. My goal is to provide you with a secure and safe environment in which you will be comfortable to address whatever bothers you, major crises or everyday hassles. In the process of therapy you will learn how to cope with and eliminate the challenges in your life. You will discover new resources, learn to use inner strengths, uncover your true self, and lead a life that is worth celebrating. If you are looking for support and guidance through a challenging situation or you are ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you. I will be honored to be a part of your journey towards inner peace and well being.

Featured Therapist 

Barbara Witney, MA
Donna Yorke, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Temecula, CA

I’ve been in private practice in Temecula since 1990. I work with individuals, couples and families on a variety of issues, using a straight-forward approach to problem solving. While I listen with empathy, I am an “active” therapist, meaning I make suggestions, give direction and homework to partner with my clients so they can solve their problems in a timely, effective manner.
