Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe how we perceive and response to daily interactions effects the relationship with ourselves and others. These moments, whether you are experiencing joy or discomfort are opportunities for personal growth; practicing kindness and compassion to all. I assist clients with learning and practicing mindfulness; paying attention to the present moment, enabling them to see clearly what is needed in the moment to make wise choices. These choices and actions will help them overcome the obstacles keeping them from the life they seek. My therapeutic training and mindfulness practice has helped me with maintaining a presence with clients, one of acceptance and compassion. Teaching and facilitating Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills has helped me maintain a non judgmental stance and understanding with clients. Acknowledging their pain, confusion and desire to make a better life. Being mindful of my daily difficulties allows me to be empathic with what clients bring into therapy. I think we each have the desire to live in a harmonious world. We are all doing the best we can.

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.
