Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
You’re a unique individual I‘ve never met before. I don’t know who you are, and I’ll never know as much about that as you do. I’m not planning to offer some one-size-fits-all solution to your concerns. What I am planning is to have a private, confidential conversation that helps you know even more about yourself, so that making changes becomes easier. Let’s talk!

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.
