Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Accepting New Clients! If you or a family member is suffering emotionally, I can help ease your suffering. If you are having trouble in relationships or if you are unable to function as well as you would like to, we can find solutions together. I believe that you have the ability to live a fulfilling life despite having had negative personal experiences. In a safe, supportive environment we will work together to help you live a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life. I am a Licensed Therapist with almost 9 years of experience treating individuals (adults/teens/children) and families. While I have extensive experience helping clients with depression, anxiety, trauma & other painful conditions, I also offer specialized treatment for women seeking healing from Perinatal Mood & Anxiety disorders. My clients describe me as deeply empathetic & caring while also highly effective at facilitating growth and positive changes in their lives. My approach is client-centered, based on mindfulness, holistic studies and Cognitive-Behavioral theory.

Donna J. Shanahan M.A.

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.
