Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I want to assist you in achieving your goals as quickly as possible. How long that takes depends mostly on how much work you do between sessions! A major factor for many is working to change the story you tell yourself about who you believe you are and what you can expect of others, Many years of experience with Trauma, both military and non-military, and how that has impacted your narrative. Was Clinical Director at VVSD, a nationally respected Veteran's Treatment Center.

Donna J. Shanahan, MA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 
Pasadena, CA 91101

I am a Marriage and Family therapist in private practice. I work with individuals, couples, and families in short and long-term psychotherapy. We work together to explore memories of the relational dynamics of the individual’s family, the feelings those dynamics created for the individual as a child, and how the individual now relates to those feelings and memories.
