Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Deciding to seek therapy takes courage and it's important to find the right therapist to feel comfortable. I provide a safe place to talk things out and get the support you need to move past the pain. Stress and low self-esteem can create problems like depression, anxiety and difficulties in relationships. Healthy relationships develop when you can look at yourself and stop blaming others. Often, I recommend support groups because peer support helps reinforce what's learned in therapy and decreases isolation. Together we will work together to set goals and practice skills that can improve your relationships and self-esteem.

Featured Therapist 

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.
