Donna Shanahan is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years of experience serving couples and families. She works with all couples and relationships including couples who have experienced an affair, couples who are “fighting all the time”, and couples who have lost that “spark” for each other. Helping couples is not just an area of specialty for Donna, it is her life’s work.
Meet Donna Shanahan:
“I believe that balance and equality between partners are at the core of relational harmony. Whether it’s been years of tough times or you’re in shock from an event such as an affair, I am here to help you achieve a level of connection in your relationship that allows you to express yourselves without fear, blame, anger, or retaliation. My hope for marriage is that it can grow better and stronger if each partner is committed to working on it individually and together. This work is not just day-to-day—it’s minute by minute. You’ll find me to be an active therapist, someone who is in there with you. Marriage is a partnership. It teaches people to work with one another, to compromise, to think of others and not just themselves. Figuring out how to mend things is challenging. How to get from here to there is not an overnight journey. But I’ve made it my life’s work to know how to guide you on this path, and I have helped many couples reconnect in ways they could not have imagined when they started.”
