Understanding that Kathy wouldn’t want them to simply move on, they established Kathy’s Legacy Foundation to inspire dreams, change lives, and rekindle hope in her memory.

SAN DIEGO PSYCHOTHERAPY
San Diego Psychotherapy helps people create more life balance, facilitate self-growth, enhance their self-esteem and live according to their values.
We all have the capacity to engage with wisdom from within to move in a deeply meaningful direction through life’s transitions. Whether it be a career or relationship challenge, anxiety over the future, regrets about the past, loneliness, confusion, fear, stress, grief, or sadness, pausing and gaining a deeper understanding is key to emerging with wisdom, balance, clarity, and purpose.
Dr. Shea’s main therapeutic approaches are based on Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Motivational Interviewing (MI) and other empirically supported modalities are also used when clinically indicated. Pain, at times, can feel all-encompassing, but this therapy can help with learning the necessary tools to navigate those circumstances.
