Licensed Counselor & Art Therapist in Private Practice

Los Altos, CA 94024

Jen is passionate about inviting others to engage in a more authentic, awakened, connected life. She is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, a Nationally Registered Art Therapist, and a Master-level Reiki practitioner. Through her private practice in the SF Bay Area, she supports women in various stages of self-discovery and transformation, with particular emphasis on the transition into motherhood and helping caregivers actively engage in their own self-care practices.

Jen’s creative, in-depth, process-oriented approach to art psychotherapy is rooted in transpersonal psychology. Transpersonal psychology includes the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of being human, and goes beyond to embrace our more universal identities and our spirituality. She holds unconditional acceptance, compassion, and the belief that we all intrinsically move toward health and wholeness. Her strength-based approach focuses on psychological wellness and basic sanity rather than on pathology. Jen employs a variety of techniques such as guided visualization, dream work, mindfulness meditation, art therapy, body wisdom, and energetic healing.

Jen also offers customized, creative blessing ceremonies to help women celebrate the transition into motherhood. A blessing ceremony is a gathering of loved ones for the purpose of honoring the mother-to-be by acknowledging this profound rite of passage.
