Tara Brach speaks of being a bird with two wings. Often my thoughts turn to this when describing how I work. As a mindfulness-based and contemplative psychodynamic psychologist, I seek to help others find ways to gently turn toward their suffering, cultivating the capacity to hold that which is unpleasant in one hand, and that which is pleasant in the other. As the saying goes, "Suffering is optional."
I specialize in treating Veterans, first responders, complex health/mental health issues, and issues of connection/relationship. I am also skilled in helping those who suffer from depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Issues affecting creative professionals/personalites are of expertise and interest, as are issues which arise in adoption -- I parent a child who was adopted.
Present Center for Mindfulness and Healing is actively involved in making Delaware the First Mindful State (Google:GIFT). To see how I work, watch YouTube entitled "About Face". Additional information can be found on the website: Presentcenter.net. And if you are a Veteran, please visit the mindfulness website for Vets, by Vets: mindfulvets.net.

Jenna Tedesco's Groups

Women's Mindful Wellness Psychotherapy Group

Come be a part of a group where we laugh, we cry, and everything in between. This circle of women meets once weekly, on Thursday evenings, to offer support and lovingkindess to each other, and to practice offering same to ourselves. Mindfulness experience is not required; just bring yourself and a willingness to lean in to what is happening in the present moment. Or, maybe, a willingness to find a way to be willing to lean in.

Saturday Mindfulness Group: Now Via ZOOM!!!

If you have completed a program in mindfulness and would like to find a way to deepen your practice (or return to practice -- it's all wandering and returning, no judgment needed) consider joining this offering at The Present Center. We meet from 10-12 on Saturday mornings, and are meeting by Zoom these days. If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

More about this group

YUMEE: You Understanding Mindful Eating Enjoyment

YUMEE, an 8-week mindfulness-based eating awareness program, meets once weekly for two hours. The fee is $350 for 8 weeks, plus $50 materials fee; insurance not accepted for program. YUMEE is not limited to any particular diagnoses, and prospective participants must meet with Dr. Tedesco before registering. Participants learn traditional mindfulness practices, applying them to objects of meditation and eating. This is not a weight loss program (although often people find they lose) but a way to reconnect with food in a healthy, joyful way. YUMEE can help you cultivate the capacity to have a different relationship with food, and with yourself!
