Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Sometimes it feels like few can relate to what we're going through. "Just stop thinking about it," while well-intentioned, often invalidates a valiant attempt at gaining support. If only it were really that easy to be rid of the anxiety, fear, shame, moodiness, self-doubt, flashbacks, and so on, caused by life events that didn't go quite right. I recognize that it can be frustrating to feel unheard and misunderstood; it may even lead to thinking that you're the only one experiencing this. It takes bravery to persevere and seek further support, and I applaud you for taking this first step. During our time together, we will work on creating and implementing a plan for you to feel better, improve your relationships, and meet your goals. My technique is very collaborative so that you get what you want out of therapy. I am also a certified yoga instructor and can incorporate principles of yoga into session upon request. Clients have described me as helpful, authentic, compassionate, and humorous. Therapy doesn't have to be stale! If you agree, please call or email me for a free 15 minute consultation, or use my online booking tool at https://www.therapyinsightout.com/book-online. I look forward to speaking with you!

Featured Therapist 

Donna J. Shanahan M.A.

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.
