Private Sessions for Adults or Couples

Private sessions are built loosely around five areas: 

  • recognizing and managing stress on the emotional, physical, and mental levels
  • dealing positively with negative thoughts
  • understanding the workings of emotions
  • responding vs. reacting to our daily lives
  • developing self-compassion

Using guided practice mp3's and selected readings, participants learn the basics of developing a mindfulness practice. Contact us to schedule an intial phone call to learn more.

Parent Training in K-12 Schools

Parents are an integral part of the K-12 learning environment, which is why we offer parent nights in conjunction with our school-based trainings. We have hosted parent presentations and classes at many schools such as: 

  • The Woodlynde School, Strafford, PA
  • Strawbridge Elementary School, Haddon Township, NJ
  • St. Peter's School, Philadelphia, PA

If you are a parent who believes your child's school would benefit from an evening of mindfulness for parents, contact us for more details!
