Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that good therapy happens when we can have an honest and compassionate conversation about the life you want to lead. When we feel heard, understood, and encouraged we begin to open to more of our authentic selves. People often enter therapy in feeling stuck and frustrated in relationships or with significant others or children that concern them the most. I work with couples facing relationship challenges and individuals living with depression and anxiety and have or are currently facing challenging life events. I offer intellectual curiosity, and an emotionally present space for you to make changes needed. I work relationally incorporating a psycho-dynamic as well as a Gestalt approach to help you explore your behavior. I bring a large dose of humility, non-judgement and kindness to my work.

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.
