Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work with adults who feel stuck in patterns of anxiety and depression, or who are adapting to major life changes. You may feel that you're missing the immediacy and vitality of your life because your energy is sinking into habits of overthinking, arguing with yourself, and struggling with your emotions. You think there might be an easier way, but you're not sure how to begin un-learning years of self-blame and criticism. Or perhaps an unexpected transition in your life–a life-changing medical condition or the loss of a loved one, for example–threatens your sense of security and stability, and you're not sure how to move forward. I have a warm, relational approach that is grounded in mindfulness and acceptance. I see therapy as a place to explore the personal meanings of your experience, to broaden your perspective, to open up the heart, and to take steps for real change. My goal is to help you get to know yourself better from the inside-out and to build on your inner resources. I enjoy working with a diverse group of clients, and I have a special commitment to LGBTQ+ health and wellness. I specialize in working with gay men to break through shame and internalized homophobia and to build healthy and rewarding relationships. If you feel that we may work well together, please contact me to set up a free consultation.

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.
