Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I specialize in grief counseling and in helping older individuals and couples navigate the challenges of aging. We live in a world that has no time for grief, and no patience for the physical and emotional challenges of aging. Because our culture has so little tolerance for these experiences, people are forced to push down their feelings and pretend that they’re not in any pain. As a result, it's easy to become lost in your grief, and frustrated in your efforts to find meaning and joy as you age. My approach is connected, warm, strength-based, and supportive. I work hard to be transparent; I answer questions rather than deflect them, and I don't keep secrets from my clients. My goal is for us to build a strong relationship, based on openness and honesty. For those in a 12 step program, I'm very comfortable working within a 12 Step framework.

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.
