Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
A long journey of personal growth, education and training has culminated in my private psychotherapy practice. I received my MS degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Kentucky with a focus on trauma recovery and gender issues. After completing my MS degree, I lived at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA for 3 years. During that period, I completed the training to become a massage therapist, earned a certification in Somatic Psychology from Santa Barbara Graduate Institute, and participated in many Gestalt process trainings. Since moving to the San Francisco Bay area, I have provided therapeutic services at Buckalew Programs and Marin Services for Women. Currently I am employed as The Behavioral Health Program Director at the Ritter Center, as a consultant to Esalen Institute and as a clinician in my private practice.

Featured Therapist 

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.
