Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a licensed MFT and board certified art therapist (ATR-BC), I work collaboratively with teens, adults and families who are in crisis, or otherwise challenged and stressed by anxiety, depression, or trauma. There may be relationship or family conflict, abuse, self-injury, anger, addiction, sexual orientation and gender identity issues, life transitions, and the pain of loss. Therapeutic change happens when there is a mutual trust and connection between therapist and client in a safe and supportive environment that is free from judgment or expectation. Talk therapy is hard for people with trauma histories. Body-based results of trauma are stored in the right hemisphere. Activation of the right hemisphere offers access to the stored physical and emotional traumatic memories, internal sensations, feelings, and thoughts that can then be expressed in visual form. In addition to art therapy, I also use mindfulness, journaling, and guided imagery - building a container for themes to emerge and providing a concrete way of 'seeing' and processing meaning. There is no need to have any previous art experience in order for this to be highly beneficial and is used with all ages.

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.
