Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
At some point in our lives, most of us have felt stuck. Whether you are in a job that you hate but don't leave, trapped in an unhappy relationship, struggling with an addiction or recovering from a traumatic past, the pain you feel is REAL. I help clients alleviate their pain and break out of dysfunctional cycles. I work together with the client to understand their role in the cycle and develop alternative, healthier responses. I enjoy helping clients discover their strengths and how to use these to create a more satisfying life NOW. I work with clients experiencing stress, lack of motivation, depression, anxiety, addictions, trauma recovery, grief and loss, self esteem or workplace issues. I work with individuals, couples and families and adolescents. Couples:Stuck in an unhappy "dance" with your partner? Do efforts to get close end in fighting or distancing from each other? Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)helps to transform destructive patterns into safe, secure and loving bonds, the foundation for a lifetime of intimate connection. What are you waiting for?

Barbara Witney, MA
Donna Yorke, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Temecula, CA

I’ve been in private practice in Temecula since 1990. I work with individuals, couples and families on a variety of issues, using a straight-forward approach to problem solving. While I listen with empathy, I am an “active” therapist, meaning I make suggestions, give direction and homework to partner with my clients so they can solve their problems in a timely, effective manner.
