Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Have you experienced a change in your life that you are finding hard to handle? Sometimes life can present challenges which are difficult to overcome or cope with on our own. Having a trusted, caring, and competent individual on your side can help you overcome challenges, cope with unwanted changes, and grow individually. This growth can improve your relationships with self, significant others, family, friends, and in your profession. I offer you a trusting, caring environment where you can explore your responses to life's changes, examine who you are in relationship with self and others, and what changes can be created from within to achieve what you desire in life. I work from an understanding that we are whole unique beings with the capacity to achieve what can be fulfilling in life. Let's work together on exploring and overcoming obstacles that have been placed in your way of finding fulfillment in life.

Kelly Duggan Shearer, 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.
