Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Gina Fahouri is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who is bilingual in Spanish and has been providing psychotherapy services for over 15 years. Her bicultural background gives her insight in how to help diverse individuals and families from all backgrounds manage issues ranging from family conflict to depression, anxiety, trauma, serious mental illness and co-occurring drug and alcohol issues. Gina chose a career as a Marriage and Family Therapist in part because of her own positive experiences with therapy as a teenager. She was fortunate enough to have a therapist who really listened and helped her through this developmental transition. After finishing her B.A. in Psychology at UC Berkeley, she decided to volunteer at a local peer counseling collective. She was trained in a style of therapy that emphasizes inherent worth and resiliency and saw how helpful this approach could be in her future work. She finished her M.S. in Counseling Psychology at Cal State Hayward and began her career as a psychotherapist working for several years in Los Angeles and for the last 12 years in the Bay Area.

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.
