About My Practice

couples: Therapy with your mate can provide you with new perspectives and positive options. Powerful strategies and tools are needed to break old patterns and overcome the challenges. It is true that most adults enter into relationships today without having had the right tools to eventually be successful. This explains the rate of divorce and discontent. Couples therapy gives you the knowledge to learn how to speak, how to be heard, touched, adored, and grow old together. These tools are priceless for your lives whether you are fielding a current conflict or want to come in for preventive measures to insure a connected union. individuals: Whether you are coming in to try and resolve deep issues or are interested in gaining a better insight on balancing and integrating your day to day life, there is a space for you here. What is important to remember is that you are the expert on yourself! I will gladly guide you to the places you'd rather be in your life and help unfold some of the mysteries that have been lurking in order to heal and grow. Understanding how we became who we are is one of the tools to unfolding the true person we want to be. Healing does happen. No matter where you are in your life right now, BE KIND to yourself starting on the inside.

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.
