Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
If you’re thinking about starting therapy, you have already taken the first step toward making a change. When you are ready to examine your life – what works, what doesn’t – in a safe, supportive environment, I invite you to get in touch with me. Together we’ll take a look at where you’ve been (your past) in order to understand how you got to where you are (your present) and work to make positive changes that will enhance your life.

In addition to working with individuals and couples, I specialize in parenting. I help parents change their family dynamics to encourage cooperative, respectful behavior in their kids. My approach aims to honor each child’s individual personality while supporting the parents’ role as family leaders. I advocate a loving but firm style of parenting. My articles on parenting have appeared in Parents, Working Mother, Woman’s Day, Healthy Kids and other publications.

Featured Therapist 

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.
