Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
We live in a world of growing pressures amidst a weakening sense of community. One can easily feel stressed, isolated, confused or stuck in such an environment. You’ve probably thought a lost about these experiences on your own but may still feel locked inside unwanted feelings and patterns. I can help you to unlock these old habits of being by creating a relationship where you’ll feel understood, card about, and accepted. I’ll follow your lead, since the important concerns come to light in this way, while also offering you the fresh perspective you want.

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.
