Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I specialize in several areas:
  • EFT for rapid emotional relief
  • Relationship, with yourself and with others
  • Men's issues. I have led men's groups for 16 years and taught workshops as large as 400 men.
  • Spiritual practice: working with awareness itself, rather than the contents of awareness. Developing presence, clarity, inner peace. I have been doing spiritual practices for 30 years and been a student in the Diamond Heart School for 16 years.

    Featured Therapist 

    Kelly Duggan Shearer, M.A.
    Patricia Ravitz, 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.
