Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
A therapy relationship provides an opportunity to develop compassionate self-understanding, a deep sense of personal integrity; it supports your ability to express yourself honestly. and to develop one’s capacities to create growth-enhancing relationships that embrace mutuality in relatedness as well as authenticity and genuine tenderness.

With an attitude of gentleness toward meeting all aspects of yourself, we can explore how certain patterns, beliefs, and old hurts may be influencing your present inner dialogue and relationships in ways that prevent you from moving toward what has heart-meaning for you.

My approach with individuals and couples is influenced by intersubjective, existential-humanistic and contemplative perspectives.

Joan Fenold, MFT, is a licensed marriage and family therapist, psychotherapist and consultant in Berkeley, Mill Valley, and San Francisco, CA. She has taught and supervised at CIIS, and John F. Kennedy University. She is a long time practitioner of meditation in the Buddhist tradition.

Barbara Witney, MA
Donna Yorke, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Temecula, CA

I’ve been in private practice in Temecula since 1990. I work with individuals, couples and families on a variety of issues, using a straight-forward approach to problem solving. While I listen with empathy, I am an “active” therapist, meaning I make suggestions, give direction and homework to partner with my clients so they can solve their problems in a timely, effective manner.
