Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Reaching out for help can feel like a matter of life and death. You might delay the call, hoping that whatever is wrong will go away. Unfortunately, profound suffering usually can’t be wished away. It needs to be confronted directly. Though perhaps not obvious, your suffering may be an expression of unresolved childhood wounds. Emotions can reflect early painful experience and affect your well-being and communication style, and interfere with the quality of your relationships. Now might be the time to heal those wounds and reclaim your authentic self. By exploring the meaning of your behavior and emotions, we can work together to bring your child-self back to life. My practice is focused on uncovering the innocent self at any age, allowing more healthy and authentic relationships for children as well as adults. My life’s experience will contribute to understanding your pain, as well as your hopes for the future. Before becoming a therapist, I studied philosophy, worked in offices, raised kids, and became a grandmother.

Featured Therapist 

Donna J. Shanahan M.A.

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.
