Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Who am I? I am someone who has an intrinsic desire towards helping others reach their intra-personal and inter-personal aspirations. I am a California Licensed Marriage And Family Therapist with various experience in child, adolescent, adult, couples, and family therapy, as well as those who suffer from mental disorders paired with substance abuse. I attended graduate school at Argosy University-San Diego, where I received a Master’s in Clinical Psychology, with Honors Distinction in 2010. San Diego State University is where I obtained a Bachelor’s in Psychology, with Honors Distinction in 2005. I have a strong commitment in work ethic and providing respect towards clients and families. I stand by my integrity and work hard to be diligent at helping others integrate learned coping skills into their daily lives. Personal strength towards cultural awareness and regard for personal diversity is very important to me. I maintain an open mind towards learning about individuals and tailor my interventions based on the client’s specific goals desired while integrating theoretical interventions that have been scientifically shown to work. I have several years dedicating my clinical skills helping families and individuals improve their quality of life and look forward towards helping many more, and perhaps you!

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.
