About Jing Ye


I am a licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, a certified Focusing Oriented Therapist (www.focusing.org) with over 25 years experience. 


Besides individual and couple/family counseling sessions, I provide mindfulness related trainings and workshops, support and therapy groups, life coaching, clinical supervision, and consultation. I have been leading weekly meditation groups on a college campus for the past 19 years.


I received my Masters degree in Psychology/Counseling from Goddard College in Vermont. I have worked at an Adolescent Recovery Program, a Community Mental Health Clinic, and Liberal Arts Colleges. My extensive training and practice in Buddhist teachings and meditation, Tai Chi, Chi Gong and Eastern philosophy serve as a fabric interwoven into all aspects of my life and clinical practice.


As a therapist, I trust the healing power of unconditional presence. I allow myself to be open to what emerges in the moment with a non-judgmental attitude, compassion, and respect for the client’s innate healing power.



My Practice

On A Personal Note

I came to the U.S. 26 years ago from China, and recently moved to Phippsburg Maine to be closer to nature. I am enchanted by the constant discovery of the magic of nature: ocean, rock formations, trees, and wildlife. I take long walks on beautiful Popham beach and many local trails. Such living experiences in nature have further widened and softened my heart, sharpened my awareness, and increased a loving acceptance and compassion for all people.  

Focusing Oriented Therapy

Every situation you encounter in life, whether it's joyful or sad, large or small, gives you a distinct body sense. In focusing, you learn how to attend to the subtle language of the sensing body.  A river of experience flows through you. You can talk above that river, or you can direct your attention down to its banks and sense its direction. The river already has its own direction. For every issue, the organism, the body, the being, has it own sense of the next right step.  Every concern you have, if you sit with it, at that unclear edge, has its sense of the next right step.  You have a lot of wisdom there. Focusing is a way to access that wisdom. For more information, please visit: www.focusing.org

Meditation and Spiritual Growth

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

One way to experience this is through meditation. When we are tuned in to the spiritual nature, we are less likely to identify with our roles and less reactive to our emotional ups and downs or losses and gains. However, some people try to bypass psychological issues through spiritual or religious practices and only get more frustrated with their conditioned thoughts and behavior patterns. 

Instead of separating body and spirit, we work holistically to connect with our intrinsic goodness and deepen our understanding of life in both its visible and invisible reality.

What is going on in your innermost being is worthy of your whole love. 

                    -Rainer Maria Rilke


Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In that response lies our growth and our freedom.

               Victor Frankl



"In the seven years I’ve known Jing I’ve come to realize how special she is as a counsellor, as a teacher, and as a caregiver. Jing’s presence is undeniable. When she listens, she listens with her entire being. When she speaks, she speaks with her entire being. Each movement, each word (said or unsaid) is thoughtful, helpful, kind, and timely. As someone who has been in therapy settings for over a decade, I can say that no counsellor has ever made me feel so seen. Jing has helped me dive into the deepest parts of my shadow and helped me to find my own way through the challenges that arise in that process. Her method—through a thoughtful, fluid combination of psychotherapy and focusing practice—is to be a mirror of one’s own presence and experience. She is not interested in telling a patient what to do, but she reflects to them their own emotional processes so that they might see those processes in a new light. This method is respectful, sustainable, and empowering. I am immeasurably grateful to Jing for the gift of her presence in my life."

Life Coach

Have you been reactive, stressed, or blaming others for your suffering? Are you feeling stuck or powerless with your current life situations?  Do you know that you can choose to view what happens to you as a message or feedback and not to judge it as good or bad? 

Let’s meet and explore ways to empower yourself by changing the narrative about your life and examine it through a different lens. You will learn more about yourself, including your inner resources, as well as gaining clarity on your life situations. A forward direction, an inner and outer adjustment or change can come naturally as a result of this work. Your relationship with yourself and others will change and improve as you change your relationship with your life’s experiences.
