Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My practice is limited to relationship counseling. I work with couples who want to stop fighting, be more intimate or comfortable with each other, face new life changes or difficulties as true partners, or just be happier as a couple. I also work with couples contemplating marriage, or thinking about divorce. I have a particular understanding and affinity for men having difficulty in their relationships with their wives or partners.

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.
