Jennifer Del Castillo

(LPC, CRC)

About Me

Hello, my name is Jennifer and I am a therapist who has practiced in various settings for 10 years. If you'd like to know more about me, feel free to go to my website. | https://www.doublespirals.com.

My counseling style is a person-centered, nonjudgmental, eclectic, compassion-focused, and integrative approach: to healing and change, observation and action, connection to self and others. All of us experience struggles and suffering in our lives. The focus is to acknowledge what is going on in your life while working towards change from a place of compassion. Focusing on your strengths, building upon them, and helping you to move towards the values are important to you.

I approach counseling by way of collaboration between the therapist (myself) and you (the client) in a safe space. It is you that is permitting me to be on this journey with you. Therapy is individualized to the person I am working with; not a one-size-fits-all approach. Observing what you are dealing with from a multifaceted perspective, not only in parts. Meeting you where you are at and us working together towards insight and understanding. Helping you learn tools for you to utilize them and to make those decisions on your own.

Thank you for your time and for taking the courage to seek out support. Therapy is all about what each participant, therapist and client (you), put into it. This is an empowering 1st step you have imparted for yourself.

If you are ready to begin, I am here to accompany and support you on this journey ahead.

Written by C.L. on Nov 30, 2020 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Not only is Jennifer a highly skilled therapist but her instinctual cues are very strong. Jennifer creates a very safe space to discuss a spectrum of emotions, ideas & hence I feel supported by her. Outside of the therapy sessions, she sends me very interesting information to read & areas to approach! Highly recommend Jennifer as your therapist.

Jennifer has always gone the extra mile and helped me through this chaotic year and the various points in my life where I struggled more than usual. She has provided insights, resources and exercises that have helped me heal from past trauma and move on to a healthier life. She recognizes my strengths and always encourages me to tap into them during periods of hardship. I'm very grateful to have her as my therapist.

Jennifer is very knowledgeable, also extremely creative, with different methods of counseling. She is easy accessible, and responsive, in a very timely manner. She is the best counselor I've ever experienced. I would recommend her and better help.

Written by A.M. on Sep 28, 2020 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, self esteem, and career difficulties

I can’t even put into words how amazing Jennifer Del Castillo has been, I am so happy we met. As some what of a veteran to counselling, I’ve never had a counselling experience as effective as my short time with Jennifer has been. I love her approach and different counselling styles, she’s so quick to respond and helpful, she doesn’t just listen but she provides you tools to go deeper, she’s so polite and professional throughout each session. I can’t say enough, I’m currently not able to afford frequent counselling sessions but I definitely want to continue my time with Jennifer and she’s the sole reason why! Thank you for doing what you do for others.

Jennifer is an awesome support system. I feel very comfortable speaking with her without fear or judgement. She respects my thoughts and respects me as an equal. She's helped me turn my life around and grow to the person who I never thought I could be. I can't thank her enough.

Jennifer has been great help so far. She is compassionate towards my issues and offers me materials which really focus on the specific struggles I am facing. She gives thorough explanations and follows up to see how I am doing. Anyone would benefit from her counseling. Thanks Jennifer.

Written by M.U. on Aug 10, 2019 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Jennifer is wonderfully supportive, knowledgeable and attentive in her responses. Absolutely balanced with compassion and empathy, as well as realistic gentle changes, which enable me to move forward without overwhelm. She recognizes, before I do, where reassurance is needed and she checks in with me in the loveliest, non-pressured way, if I haven’t been in contact for a while. Both Jennifer and the format of BetterHelp are truly delivering something special and much needed.
