Jesse has been teaching and coaching people in mindfulness to help them to increase compassion and well-being, change their relationship to stress, and cultivate healthier habits of the mind for the past 12 years through individual, couple, family, group, schools, organizations, and mindfulness presentations and workshop sessions. Some clients who are already receiving psychotherapy from Jesse or other clinicians have sought Jesse out to learn mindfulness to support them with the work that they are doing in therapy. Other clients want to learn mindfulness to help manage such stressors as work, relationships and roles, health challenges, and life circumstances. And other clients want to learn mindfulness to help them to move to another level of well-being and to support themselves in cultivating greater self-awareness and accessing their own inner wisdom for their life path. Sessions are tailored toward the individual needs of clients, families, schools, and workplaces.
One option is to receive a series of 6-8 sessions either weekly or every other week for a half-hour or an hour to learn the basics of mindfulness and how to begin to establish one’s own mindfulness practice. Clients may then opt for additional sessions as needed to support them in how to continue to apply mindfulness in their lives and with specific circumstances or issues they may be struggling with, or to receive guidance around deepening their practice of mindfulness.
Fees for individual and family mindfulness coaching are $60 for a half hour and $100 for an hour.
