Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I help adults, adolescents, and couples experience life more deeply; enjoy more satisfying relationships; resolve painful conflicts; and improve self-esteem, self-worth and emotional well-being.

I have a general private practice and specialize in anxiety, depression, addiction, relationships, and grief. I also help people prepare for big life changes and transitions (such as marriage, the birth or adoption of a child, starting college, adjusting to a new move, career change, etc.).

I aim for a reduction in a client's current symptoms, and provide an opportunity to address the broader and potentially more enduring changes in life roles and behaviors. This can require balanced attention to the importance of past events as well as the here and now.

My approach is collaborative, interactive, and supportive. I emphasize the growth and process of the client-therapist relationship by creating a safe, confidential, respectful and healing interpersonal environment.

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.
