Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Marcia's strongest asset is her ability to integrate her professional and intellectual knowledge with her own lived experience. She was propelled into becoming a psychotherapist wanting to work with patients facing life transforming challenges when her spouse was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. Some of the challenges she confronted were the threat that the illness and the loss of her husband posed to her own survival and the perils of widowhood.

Marcia is a recognized leader in the management of sexual dysfunction associated with chronic illness. More recently, she has developed programs focusing on helping widows and divorcees learn how to rebuild their lives, overcome grief and loss, repair relationships, make new friends and create an identity of their own.

You can expect when you come to Marcia's office: an environment that is safe, non judgmental, nurturing yet challenging; and, assistance is setting life goals and developing effective strategies to handle life crises.

Kelly Duggan Shearer, 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.
