Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My private practice opened in 1989 with a location in Pacific Height & the Financial District of San Francisco. While my practice is a general one I have focused much of my ongoing development in the areas of Couples Therapy and All Aspects of Addiction work. The theoretical orientations include Family Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Brief Cognitive Therapy, Somatic & Attachment Perspectives. I am an avid student in this world of Therapy and will never stop learning new ways to help individuals and couples reach there goals. I begin working with clients by trying to understand what they want to accomplish and then, access with them the best approaches to use considering their own psychological make up , how long they have been dealing with a particular problem area and what methods seem to fit respectfully with their needs & wants. This is a collaborative evaluation with both the clients & myself seeing if we are a good fit. They are many roads to a healthier self and your choice in a therapist is a big decision. I generally work proactively with clients and yet your needs & strengths will help point the direction and type of work we do together. Much of the time the work is done in the session and there are also times I may suggest readings & observations you can make between sessions. However this is always an optional choice and never to add more for you to "do" in what often is a busy life.

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.
