Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a psychotherapist in San Francisco, and I have been working with both individuals and couples since 1993.

My style of working is warm, thoughtful, and collaborative. I offer people supportive feedback and guidance, and I use appropriate therapeutic methods to engage and facilitate a process of deeper change.

Some of the difficulties I work with include:
Relationship Issues
Depression and Low Self-worth
Anxiety, Excessive Worry
Grief and Bereavement
Effects of Recent or Childhood Trauma/Abuse

I also see people who need just to discuss a situation or who are simply feeling overwhelmed, without support, or somehow empty in their lives.

Therapy is an opportunity to use the problem we’re experiencing as an impetus to grow, heal and make positive change. Through it we can develop a more caring and secure relationship with ourselves, more satisfying relationships with others, and more creative, effective, and fulfilling life.

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.
