Jen Berlingo, LPCC, ATR, Counselor in Los Altos
With compassion & creativity, I support women seeking meaning and growth. As both a licensed counselor and art therapist, I invite both verbal and visual processing into therapy sessions. Many clients prefer solely talk therapy, which is powerful in itself. However, the adult intellect can be adept at keeping old patterns intact (even ones that keep us stuck.) Art bypasses verbal limitations, allowing ah-ha moments to come safely and clearly. I delight in helping women during any stage of transformation and self-discovery, with emphases in perinatal psychology and supporting other helping professionals in mindfulness and self-care practices.
As a graduate of Naropa, a Buddhist university for contemplative study, I hold space for clients with transpersonal tenets of unconditional acceptance, compassion, and basic sanity. My approach focuses on psychological wellness rather than pathology. I work holistically, employing techniques such as art therapy, visualization, dream work, mindfulness, and ritual.
I am also available for art therapy supervision (toward ATR) and Reiki sessions. In addition to my private practice, I facilitate mother's blessing ceremonies as a sacred and artful way to honor the rite of passage of becoming a parent. [More blessing info available at: http://heARTfulblessing.com]
