Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. My specialty is play therapy with children. In addition to verbal communication, I use the aids of games, art, sand, workbooks, and puppets to improve functioning. As a former teacher and middle school counselor, I work well with the schools. I also enjoy working with women on such issues as life transitions, divorce, substance abuse, depression, parenting, balancing motherhood and careers, and other challenges. Approaches are always custom tailored to the needs and goals of individual clients. I have experience with many issues including divorce, foster care, custody changes, child abuse, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, ADHD, developmental challenges, and relationship dysfunction.

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.
