Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Therapy is about how life’s ordinary (and sometimes extraordinary) issues affect you and your relationships to people and the world around you, but you are not the problem. Therapy is work --- your work. The therapist’s role is to facilitate, ask, wonder out loud, suggest possible alternatives, encourage (instill courage), and assist. My therapeutic approach grows out of Adlerian individual psychology. Everyone’s life tasks include cultivating positive experiences about work, love, the community around you. Everyone is “becoming.” “Everything can also be different,” and it can be different most likely, most directly, and most dramatically by thinking about it differently; soon we will react and behave differently and discover that it IS different. The therapist’s (my) job is to en-courage you, to instill courage to make the decisions and take the steps you want in order to improve the relationships you have with the world around you. “Homework" is a vital part of the therapeutic process. The completion of homework is necessary if the client is to get the most from the therapeutic experience.

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.
