Teaching Schedule


Jennifer Egert, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist in private practice in New York City and an artist. As a doctoral student, she trained in mind-body approaches to managing health and emotional difficulties. She worked at the VA medical center for 9 years as a health psychologist, caring for veterans with illness, disability and at end of life. 

She began her own personal study and mindfulness practice in 2002, exploring the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, G.I. Gurdjieff, Thich Nhat Hanh and others. She has trained in both MBCT and MBSR as well with other mindfulness-based psychotherapies and interventions (e.g., Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Somatic Experiencing). Through her own practice and work with others in groups and in psychotherapy, she has come to understand the power of mindfulness practice in helping people find a sense of acceptance, compassion, and wholeness in the face of trauma, depression, anxiety and other challenges we all face as human beings.
