Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My work as a therapist is to help resolve conflict and promote peace. I assist individuals, couples, and families to achieve greater understanding of the important people in their lives – including themselves. Together we seek to improve communication and implement productive new behaviors.

As a couples and family therapist, I am influenced by Bowen’s Family Systems theory, which views the family as an emotionally interdependent whole. My role is to aid in fostering self-reflection, decreasing anxiety in the system, separating thoughts from feelings, tracing family patterns, and understanding the structure and process of their relationships.

I am also influenced by Weiss’ Control Mastery theory, which contends that, in order to survive psychologically challenging situations, people adopt negative beliefs about themselves that later make it difficult to find joy or fulfillment in life. I work as a partner with clients as they seek to understand and overcome these obstacles.

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.
