Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
• Help for individuals to heal depression, anxiety and trauma • Facilitate couples resolution of relationship distress • Improve family harmony, communication and functioning • Brief and solution-focused therapy (typically 6-8 sessions with possible monthly follow-up for a few months) • Living in the past is the source of sadness, living in the future is the source of anxiety and worry, experiencing now is the source of peace and joy • Build self-esteem, confidence and happiness • Strength-based focus on what is right not just what is wrong • Free your true self, authentic/true self is always a powerful person • Be able to have self-control and be self-determining • Express pain without being stuck in self-pity Utilizing both ancient principles and modern science, Mindfulness Psychotherapy and Positive Psychology help free trapped energy that is used to maintain habitual thoughts, postures, worries and regrets. We can learn to discover intelligence beyond thought, and use our minds as a powerful and effective tool while not being a slave to it. We can learn to control our emotions, which are thought driven, and cultivate deeply spiritual states of being such as love, joy and peace, which are not dependent on fluctuating emotion or the chatter of our minds. You can learn to increase awareness and use intent to focus attention on affirmation of life, ending fear based agreements.

Kelly Duggan Shearer, M.A.
Patricia Ravitz, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
San Rafael, CA

My therapeutic style is non-judgmental, supportive, and interactive. My work is based on establishing a safe environment where trust can grow. I view symptoms as a way to call attention to unrecognized needs and unexpressed feelings. The goals of treatment include; learning to identify and express emotions, learning to set appropriate boundaries, developing skills such as self-soothing and impluse control and improving self-esteem.
