Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I look at attachment patterns and intimacy interactions to change distressed relationships. What are the underlying needs and hopes that you are striving to get met and what gets in the way of having them heard and satisfied? Each of us has a grounded, functional adult self that wants intimacy and knows how to create it. Our reactive wounds can get in the way of our happiness. Please contact me to discuss your specific needs.

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.
