Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Currently, my practice focuses entirely on individuals who deal with eating/food/weight issues. I have an extensive background working in this arena, including running support groups for the graduates of Kaiser Permanente’s weight loss program in Santa Clara. I run support groups in downtown San Diego and La Mesa (East County), where I work with people who struggle with losing &/or keeping weight off. The focus of these groups is support, education and problem solving that leads to alteration in behavior and attitude. People realize their power; gain feelings of higher self esteem/self worth and learn to take actions and responsibility, which leads to long lasting change.

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.
