Bringing a careful, curious & compassionate attention to ourselves and our present situation is often the first step in any journey of healing or self-discovery. In our work together, I will encourage you to join me in a non-judging, non-blaming attitude of curiosity towards yourself, your past and current experiences and relationships, and whatever comes forward during our meetings together. For me, this curiosity includes elements of deep respect for what is known and not known about what shapes our sense of who we are and what drives our moods and behaviors.

My training has predominantly been in psychodynamic psychotherapy with an emphasis on what is referred to as a relational approach. This approach uses the exploration of our current and past relationships, and what arises in the therapeutic relationship as doorways into a greater understanding of the issues that challenge us

Additionally, my experience with mindfulness practices have led me to understand the importance of bringing a careful awareness to our moment to moment sensory experiences, our habits of thinking and relating in the world and capacity for generating a greater sense of stability, belonging and well being in our lives.

Ken A Verni's Groups

8 Week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Groups

Offered 2 to 3 times per year, the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Groups are modeled after the curriculum developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at Umass. Participants learn to incorporate mindfulness practices into their daily lives though experiential exercises, guided meditations practiced together and at home, & group discussions. By learning to turn towards their lives with a compassionate, non-judging attention, participants learn to embrace the present moment and shift their relationship to the judgments, ruminations, and anxieties that can so often lead to a sense of dissatisfaction and dis-ease in their lives. Please see website for upcoming courses.
