Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My name is Jennifer Vera, and I am an bilingual therapist located in Berkeley, California. Throughout my career, I have worked with two distinct, though often overlapping, populations: young children and their parents, and adults healing from various kinds of trauma and looking to build more meaningful, joyful lives. I enjoy working with clients from a variety of backgrounds, including: young adults launching into higher education, career and relationships; new parents and parents of infants and toddlers; queer, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender nonconforming individuals; Individuals healing from trauma and oppression; and healers and helping professionals. As a psychotherapist, I am committed to helping you reach your most fulfilling life. My style is warm, collaborative and genuine. I draw from relational, psychodynamic, and developmental theories, with an emphasis on social justice and trauma-informed care. Together, we will identify your goals, build upon your strengths, and explore the feelings, beliefs and obstacles that hold you back. Using both reflective exploration and pragmatic problem-solving, I help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and the tools to make the changes you desire.

Pamela J. Blawusch, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Carlsbad, CA

I provide a therapeutic environment that allows individuals and couples to explore ideas, beliefs, life experiences, thoughts and feelings that may stand in the way of being who you truly want to be. I can help point out repeating dysfunctional patterns that may exsist in relationships at home, at work and with friends and family.I teach people how to respond in their lives versus getting caught in reacting to personalities and events.
