Sage Core Professionals' Testimonials:
As a recent participant in an 8 week Sage Healing Institute Mind Body Intelligence Group, I am pleased to report that it was a very enjoyable and enriching experience. The Meditation and focus on experience of the here and now helped reduce stress and anxiety while enhancing my clinical practice. The "didactic:" component of the program, which was largely experience based, was extremely valuable and Dr. Ellen Adelman is a superb teacher and guide.

I am a licensed clinical social worker in private practice in center city for 14 years. I am completing level 2 sage core training tomorrow and will be going on to level 3. Originally, I signed up because I wanted to experience more about mindfulness based psychotherapy. That I did! But I also experienced and learned so much about myself and a whole new way of waking up to my own experience in life.
From day one, I began to "be" with my clients differently. I am learning and teaching simultaneously about how to accept all that we are and to hold our feelings with loving kindness rather than repressing or aggressing.
And, then there is Dr. Ellen!!! What a beautiful soul. Dr. Ellen, who is clearly so bright and grounded in academia, models everyday how it is to live life through compassionate and realistic eyes. I am learning so much from her and what she does at Sage has such a lasting ripple effect. I benefit, my clients benefit, and their family and friends benefit and on it goes.
I highly recommend the Sage Core Training for any practitioner wanting to deepen and strengthen their clinical skills and open their hearts in a new way.

It is true -- I feel that you are a master therapist.
To be a master therapist -- you have to have an open, wise, and loving heart. I believe that describes you. That does not come easy.
Truly an honor to have worked with you and the team -- I carry that spirit with me now.
