Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I embrace and integrative model that focuses on your needs, working with you collaboratively as we uncover your path to healing, balance, and aliveness. Having struggled with the challenge of many life transitions-endings and beginnings, some imposed, some chosen-I have a particular interest in helping you with yours. I am an older therapist engaged in my second career. You can always expect from me compassion, warmth and openness. With individuals, I work with your life story to transform the present, embracing both change and self-acceptance. With couples, I focus on fostering intimacy, whatever the issue, helping each of you to find your voice and feel heard by your partner. In addition to my practice with individuals and couples, I also see couples together with my husband, Dan Wile, founder of Collaborative Couple Therapy (www.dan@danwile.com). Twice a year we offer a weekend Couples Workshop in our home.

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.
