Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Pain and dissatisfaction are often what lead a person to seek therapy. I believe therapy is an opportunity to transform pain and dissatisfaction into clarity and more satisfying relationships with others and oneself. So often people choose to manage their pain with distractions such as food, alcohol, and unhealthy relationships. I am committed to helping my clients use their personal struggles to grow and achieve a higher level of functioning and personal happiness. My style is warm and intuitive, while at the same time thoughtful and engaging.

I specialize in couples work and issues related to pregnancy and family planning, in particular gay and lesbian family planning. I am also interested in working with couples’ intimacy and sexuality issues, and believe sexuality offers important insight into a couples’ relational dynamics. I speak Spanish and have several years of experience working with Spanish-speaking individuals and couples.

Donna J. Shanahan, MA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 
Pasadena, CA 91101

I am a Marriage and Family therapist in private practice. I work with individuals, couples, and families in short and long-term psychotherapy. We work together to explore memories of the relational dynamics of the individual’s family, the feelings those dynamics created for the individual as a child, and how the individual now relates to those feelings and memories.
