Linda H. Mastrangelo, MA, MFTi
Linda has been a prolific dreamer since childhood and believes dream work moved beyond the personal transforms systems and brings communities together. Her research, art pieces and therapeutic work run the gamut from spiritual alchemy to ancestral knowledge to altered states of consciousness to sacred activism.
As a graduate level certified dream specialist and psychotherapist, Linda has many years of training, facilitations, consultations and recent award winning research on using dreams as a therapeutic model. She currently writes about dreams for many publications including the Examiner, and her thesis, the Apocrypha of Dreams: The Dream as a Spiritual Practice, will be published into a book early next year.
Inspired to bring her methods to a larger arena, Linda has provided individual, family and group psychotherapy/counseling, and community education/training for underserved populations in Alameda County and is currently doing hospice work in grief counseling in San Jose. She has also co-founded the EMPACT Institute for specific populations who otherwise don’t have access to this work.
Linda has been a guest lecturer and facilitator at institutions and conferences internationally including John F. Kennedy University, IASD, the Institute for Dream Studies and The Dream Institute of Northern California where she co-hosted a “Dream Studies Open Forum” where researchers, teachers and counselors in the dreaming field shared resources to promote change in their communities. She also facilitates dream groups, counseling other therapists as well as those who seek guidance from their dreams.
