"My work with Jason started 12 years ago. I had experienced traditional psychotherapy and thought I had some level of self-awareness. A friend had told me about working with Jason in a body-centered approach, which had a powerful effect. In searching for a therapist, I had met with several psychologists, all of whom charged me for a brief consultation. By contrast, Jason spoke to me for over an hour by phone - without any mention of money - to learn about me and determine whether he could help me. This says it all about Jason. His focus is on his clients - on doing the work to heal them with compassion. "That is what Jason has done for me. I had been bullied as a child and teenager. The experience left me wounded with chronic, extreme muscle tightness and psycho-emotional manifestations related to fear and anger - such as hyper-vigilance (i.e. constant worry). "Working with Jason, I gained body awareness and then mind-body connections that deepened my self-understanding and instigated deep healing. I do not know of any other true practitioner, who combines healing modalities, compassion, wisdom, and consciousness in Jason's unique way. Jason has my highest respect and recommendation. I am happy to serve as a reference."
"Jason is an amazing support with an array of strategies to help you feel whole, balanced, grounded and just plain great. Ever present and compassionate, he keeps you focused on the right path with right effort and assists with the excavation of soul and spirit. Very simply -- he's a spectacular teacher and therapist."
"What I enjoy most about working with Jason Kanter is his ability to integrate the work of Body, Mind & Spirit, all in one session! I've always seen the spiritual arena as crucial to balancing the day to day challenges and obstacles of life, but to combine this with a body-centered approach that also utilizes the creative components of spiritual psychology and yoga, made therapy a weekly experience to look forward to! The chance to work through my problems from the inside out: beginning with sensations and feelings, and then adding the integrative component of processing those experiences in the here and now. It's like slowing down and re-shaping old patterns by listening to the body I'm living in today".

About me

WHO I AM: I am a psychotherapist and yoga therapist. My practice is in New York City and New Haven, CT. I have extensive experience in individual, group and family therapy. I have also taught yoga since 1992, and have studied numerous body-mind modalities, all of which I utilize in my work with people.

WHAT IS INTEGRATIONAL PSYCHOTHERAPY: Integrational Psychotherapy is a body-centered approach to healing which integrates psychotherapy with yoga and various forms of movement and bodywork.

MY APPROACH: Initially, I strive to create a safe "container;" a trusting environment within which people can enter into a process through which they may find compassionate self-acceptance and peace of mind. Here, the particular complexities and nuances of a person's experience can naturally emerge and be comfortably explored. Utilizing the body as a vehicle for enhancing self awareness, we work together to facilitate a present-moment consciousness that opens the door to healing.

I base my work with people on three core principles:

*In order for healing to be complete, the healing process must be comprehensive in that it must incorporate all of the various aspects of our experience;

*Because we store our life experience in our bodies, our bodies become an essential resource in the process of healing our wounds and diminishing our suffering; and

*As we are able to cultivate and strengthen our connection to present-moment experience, without judgement or agenda, we gain an ability to perceive our experience differently, and this shift in perspective is the doorway to healing.

I thus draw from various eastern traditions (such as yoga and Taoism) as well as western perspectives in psychotherapy and movement (such as Chakra Psychology, Spiritual Psychology, Somatic Experiencing and Bodymind Centering) and various forms of bodywork (such as yoga therapy, Tai Massage and Trager) to ensure that the physical, energetic and spiritual aspects of experience are integrated with the intellectual and the psycho-emotional in the healing process.

"I worked with Jason during a period in my life when I was in a major transition and found the experience transformational. Jason holds a very safe, sacred space and is a compassionate, clear and grounding presence. I experienced very deep emotional and spiritual healing with him. I was able to cultivate connections and relationships with my body and my soul that have grounded and centered me in my life in ways that have been essential and life giving. I learned and grew so much working with Jason. I am deeply grateful and feel very blessed to know and have gotten to work with him".
I had been beset by several personal and medical problems. They all seemed overwhelming to me until I started working with Jason. Through his help, I learned how to deal with things in a more constructive way, and it led me to experience life in a fuller perspective than I had before."
