Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a therapist in WLA/Santa Monica for over 25 years, I enjoy working with diverse problems and populations. One specialty is working with women in life transitions facing life/self changes, mood disorders, esteem issues, addictions, relationship problems, parenting, and issues in daily living. As an artist I have an understanding of people in creative fields and the challenges they face. My personal and professional experience as a cancer survivor adoptive parent & yoga practitioner and meditator has added to my expertise as a therapist. In addition to individual and couples therapy, I lead women's support groups.I work collaboratively with my clients doing insight work and cognitive behavioral work.to create healthier, more empowering life patterns. I am committed to helping clients gain self knowledge and effective life skills, improve their relationships and create joyous meaningful lives.I am 12 step friendly

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.
