Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
At times, the intensity of our situations and surroundings becomes difficult and it seems hard to navigate or find balance in our lives. We may be overwhelmed and confused when trying to manage what goes through our minds and feel as if we need help coping with our struggles. It is only human nature to feel this way, however, that does not mean you have to go through it alone. I believe everyone deserves a chance to shake free from the mental restraints that try to hold them back and instead experience the life that they hope to have. I facilitate discussions aimed at helping you gain a deeper connection to values within yourself and the world around you in order to confront your problems. I hope you leave with new insights and perspectives on issues in your life and I strive to act as a supportive resource while you embark on this journey. Over time, our conversations may help you work towards personal growth and self-exploration. I look forward to connecting with you through these transitional times and aim to help you overcome obstacles, explore identity, and live a healthy and meaningful life. If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to schedule an appointment, please call (949) 298-5251. If you would like to know more, please visit www.ocholistictherapy.com/about.html. I wish you well on your path towards mental health and wellness!

Featured Therapist 

Donna J. Shanahan M.A.

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.
