Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Therapy is exercise for your mind. I want to work with you, stretching your mind to see the roadblocks in life from a different viewpoint. I am here to work with you to find new ways around those roadblocks. I work with you to identify what does work, what's not working and what keeps you from doing what works. I help you to discover new coping tools that you can take with you and use for new challenges that you face. Many issues come down to experiencing grief and loss - whether it's loss of job security, loss of a friendship/relationship, your health, or actual death. I work with you to integrate these experiences into your life so you don’t stay stuck. I also have experience working with those who have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, acculturation challenges, stress management and health care concerns. I have extensive experience working with teens and adults. Home visits are available when the client is unable to travel due to health. Call today for a FREE 15 minute consultation.

Kelly Duggan Shearer, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
