WEEKDAY SESSIONS ONLY(no evenings)- TELEHEALTH ONLY -"Sometimes I wrestle with my demons, sometimes we just snuggle" -This quote speaks so well to my work as an IFS therapist. As an IFS therapist, I believe that our wholeness is not achieved by cutting off a portion of ourself but by inviting in ALL parts of ourself, which all want to play a positive role in who we are.

IFS believes that each of us is comprised of many psychological "parts", each with valuable qualities to help us thrive & protect us from pain. Each of us also has a core Self that knows how to heal us. As an IFS therapist I use this evidence based model to support you in your healing. I have completed IFS Level 1 Training & I am becoming a Certified IFS Therapist. I also use IFS personally for my own growth & healing to insure that I can bring my wholest Self to the therapy sessions with you.

IFS is my primary modality for individual counseling because it is both highly effective and relatively easy for most people to work with, across a range of issues. It can help bring clarity to all the myriad parts of a complex human being dealing with complex life issues. I find that IFS also supports differentiation of self, which is key to personal freedom and relationship success.

Using IFS, we partner to explore your inner world and get to know your parts of self. Though they are all pieces of the whole, there are parts that protect, parts that defend, parts that lead, and parts that get exiled away. Through this approach, powerful change happens. We can increase self-awareness, resolve inner conflict, heal pain, change destructive behavior and gain flexibility.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a transformative, systems-based approach to working with conflicted, wounded, or misunderstood parts of ourselves. The core of IFS is centered around helping clients access the loving, undamaged, and empowered core of their deep Self, which exists within everyone regardless of life experiences. I am currently participating in the Level 1 IFS training.

There is a wise, core 'Self' to us all, along with other 'parts' which try to help, but can get forced into unhealthy roles in our lives. Parts associated with trauma are often pushed down or 'exiled' out of awareness. When they do emerge, other protective parts try to suppress them, blocking access to core Self, which could help them heal. Together, we can help all your parts access your core Self and work both together, and for you in an adaptive and sustainable way.

MA, Professional Counselor Associate, CHT

Through a powerfully transformative, trauma-informed, and evidenced based psychotherapy model called internal family systems (IFS), you can find relief. The main beliefs IFS holds are that our minds are naturally multi-faceted and that this is a good thing. We are made of parts, which contain valuable qualities and can also carry burdens. In IFS all parts are welcome. I am trained in IFS.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy is an evidence-based, non-pathologizing and empowering approach. It is also a new paradigm for understanding and harmonizing the mind. Many of us might say, "I hate this thing about myself" or "I wish I didn't do that". It turns out that when we listen inside, rather than trying to eliminate these aspects of ourselves, our self-talk changes spontaneously and real self-compassion and connection often arise.

When working with individuals, I pull primarily from an IFS perspective. I have advanced training in IFS. Together we will invite your emotions and identify them as messengers to guide your healing. We will use ritual, art, story telling and more to explore all the parts of yourself that have a voice. Our work will dive into your body story, uncovering your inherent worthiness and wisdom.

We are all made up of different parts that contain valuable qualities and we all have an inner Self that knows how to heal, allowing us to become integrated and whole. Together, we can get to know these different parts, hear their stories, and release their burdens all while establishing more trust in the Self allowing you to feel more integrated and whole.

Sometimes it feels like we have many conflicting parts of our internal world. This can lead to feeling a lot of confusion and self doubt. Using Internal Family Systems, I can help you untangle what may feel like a jumbled mess in your mind so that you can get to know your true Self and all the “parts” of yourself, especially the protective parts of you that can sometimes get in the way of your goals.

Most of us have some ambivalence about most things because we have multiple motivations (to succeed, to be happy, to be liked for example). IFS is a way to reach consensus within ourselves, particularly if we experienced trauma.

Professional Counselor Associate

Internal Family Systems suggests that our inner world is comprised of many varied parts, each with different opinions, beliefs and energies. It also suggests we hold within a calm, wise and loving Core Self. The work of IFS is to heal the wounded parts and restore balance within our system by attending to our often child-like parts which need loving care.

This method raises a client's awareness of the many parts of themselves and these part's burdened and unburdened states and roles and inter-relationships. This method of conceptualization promotes healing and behavior change.

IFS is an evidenced based therapy that uses "parts" of us to explore and resolve internal conflicts, depression, trauma, and anxiety. IFS and "ego state" therapy helps us to "get to know" all sides of ourselves, increase self-compassion, and value our natural protective strengths.

Using Internal Family Systems therapy, I can help you to identify and understand different parts of yourself that may hold onto burdens from your past. Releasing these burdens can restore balance and harmony among the different parts of yourself, and give strength to your core self.
