“Mindfulness is the art of being fully in the present moment with acceptance and an open heart….it addresses a core longing we all share – a desire to feel at home with ourselves and others, and to be centered and comfortable in our own skin”

At SPS we are offering two Mindfulness programs based on the MBSR course and led by Kerry Alan Rasp, BA, MBSR, CU, Meditation Instructor and Life Coach and Jessica O'Neill, BA, MBSR, Mindfulness Instructor for adults and children

Foundations of Mindfulness, MBSR (Part One)

This is a four-week introduction to Mindfulness.  The goal is to give you a solid foundation of Mindfulness.  You will:

  • learn introductory practices such as meditation;

  • become familiar with being “in” your body (as opposed to up in your head);

  • begin to establish breathing as a core practice;

  • explore ways to be mindful for the holiday break.

Going Deeper, MBSR (Part Two)

Part two is a four-week program designed to help you establish a mindfulness practice. The goals include:

  • deepening your breathing practices;

  • increasing your awareness and experience of feeling calm;

  • practicing mindfulness in daily living;

  • providing resources.

Both of the programs will include discussion themes:

  • understanding the nature of the “monkey mind”; 

  • inclining the mind towards kindness, compassion, joy and acceptance; 

  • responding vs reacting; 

  • mindful communication; 

  • equanimity; 

  • exploring a new way of living: The Mindful Life.

Psychologists Jeffrey S. Kahn, PhD, MAC, CGP, DABPS, and Alison W. Johnson, PsyD, had a vision.

They imagined a center where New Jersey’s most skilled psychotherapists—from all disciplines of applied psychology—could work under one roof. They saw a warm, welcoming, supportive space for individuals, couples, families, and groups of all ages. They pictured a communal environment that fostered counselor-to-counselor consultation and collaboration, and a spectrum of creative, innovative services.​

Most important, they envisioned a place where people could not only heal their psychological wounds—but also learn how to achieve their goals and live happier, more fulfilling lives.

Transforming dream into reality, Drs. Kahn and Johnson established Summit Psychological Services, P.A. in 1992. SPS has since grown to become one of the largest, most comprehensive private psychotherapy practices in New Jersey. Our Summit and Montclair offices have served thousands of people from northern and central New Jersey (Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Union, Warren, and nearby counties); New York City; and Eastern Pennsylvania.

As an SPS client, you benefit from the best of all worlds: the comfort, privacy, and safety of a trusted therapist’s office; a wide range of services; and the depth and breadth of expertise offered by our multi-specialty team.

Summit Psychological Services offers two locations: in Summit at 482 Springfield Avenue and in Montclair, at 94 Valley Road. To reach us, contact or call 908-273-5558.
