Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My approach to psychotherapy includes the use of art therapy; a creative, and an easy way to access thoughts, and feelings. It is used with individuals of all ages, and requires no artistic skill. It translates the non-verbal into a verbal interpretation through creating symbols from one’s interior landscape and helps express what words often cannot. Art as therapy clears blocks associated with painful memories.

I believe that psychotherapy can be a wonderful journey of self discovery and acceptance. My goal is to provide a warm, accepting, and safe place where client can collaboratively explore their innermost feelings and discover new insight and meaning. I enjoy working with individuals who are facing transitions in their lives, or perhaps confronting feelings of depression, anxiety, loneliness, confusion and/or anger. I also have an interest in working with issues connected with aging; including coping with bereavement, chronic illness, death and dying.

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.
