Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy with April Kaiserlian, LMSW
Mindfulness-based psychotherapy is an experiential method of therapy that incorporates mindfulness, mind-body integration, and a deep respect for the sanctity of your individual experience. Therapy that has mindfulness as its foundation is primarily a verbal dialogue process, but the focus is on present moment experience, not intellectual analysis. The purpose of this approach to healing and personal growth is to illuminate the unconscious patterns in your life, and to help you live and make choices more consciously. Therapy sessions meet for 55-minutes.
April completed her professional mindfulness training and supervision under the direction of the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School as well as professional training with the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion. She has also completed an 18-month certificate program in mindfulness-based psychotherapy with the Hakomi Institute and maintains a private psychotherapy practice offering experiential, emotion-centered therapy.

Individual Mindfulness Instruction with Carol Hendershot, Certified MBSR Instructor
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is adaptable to an individual or couples format. These sessions are made available for people who are unable to attend the group sessions due to scheduling conflicts or if a one-on-one format is recommended by a health care professional. The private sessions are offered in a series of 4 or 8 weekly, 90-minute meetings.
However, we strongly encourage participation in the group format for several reasons. Learning how to practice mindfulness with a group provides energy and support as you learn a new skill. It is also very helpful to be able to share your own experiences as well as hear the experiences of your classmates as you learn how to integrate the practice of mindfulness into your daily life. Finally, it is helpful to understand that stress is a common condition that all of us experience. With this knowledge, we can begin to feel less alone and more a part of the human community.
