Kate Kitchen will lead a sitting practice and a discussion about how we each define mindfulness, as mediators and as professionals. Kate recently found it fascinating to hear a young clinician include relaxation in a description of using mindfulness with her clients, and it made her want to talk to other mindfulness teachers about their thoughts.

She has been providing individual, couple, family and group psychotherapy since receiving her M.S.W. from The Ohio State University in 1980.
