Jennifer Bottinelli, LPC
Jennifer is an independent practitioner offering her professional services at Mifflin Counseling Group.
I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, and relationship issues. Our lives are as rich as the characters and narratives that we find in literature. However, stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other struggles tend to mask our awareness of this richness. Yet, it is the struggles themselves that help us to change and grow. Understanding this paradox is one way to find meaning and purpose in life. My clients benefit from slowing down, tuning into their inner wisdom, and finding solutions to the stress, emotional pain, or emptiness they experience.
The therapeutic relationship is one of safety and full acceptance. Together we will work to identify behaviors and beliefs that no longer serve you so that you may embrace and live from your strengths and truths. Expect a warm and honest environment in which to decrease anxiety, depression, and stress and find more joy.
I utilize mindfulness-based cognitive therapy along with elements of psychodynamic therapy to help you identify recurring patterns and make positive changes in your life and in your relationships.
I hold a Master of Science Degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Chestnut Hill College. In addition to being trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy through Reading Hospital, I have participated in workshops on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and trauma-informed therapy. I am also a certified yoga teacher (200 hr) who has lead groups using yoga to treat anxiety and depression. In addition to seeing clients at MCG, I am a faculty counselor at Kutztown University’s Counseling & Psychological Services.
At Mifflin Counseling Group, I see adults, adolescents, and children age 10 and older. I specialize in treating anxiety and depression, trauma/PTSD, adjustment disorders, self-esteem, relationship issues, and borderline personality disorder. My therapeutic approach is informed by my interest in developing mindful awareness of what contributes to and what detracts from a healthy, content life.
