Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I specialize in working with youth and young adults ages 12-25, who are experiencing difficulty with life and family transitions, anxiety, and depression. Young adulthood is an exciting time rich with change and growth for most youth, but it may also be a scary or difficult time, particularly if there are other factors at play, including stress or changes within the family, school, or social networks. In addition to stressors, negative or maladaptive thoughts or behaviors can contribute to or exacerbate feelings of anxiety or depression. Through my experience and understanding of young adults’ needs and concerns, I am able to help clients recognize and change their thoughts or behaviors, leading to decreased anxiety or depression, and increased self-esteem. I am very familiar with the agencies and support available in Napa and life to work collaboratively with these resources, finding it greatly benefits my clients.

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.
