Internal Family Systems (IFS)
Local Experts in Internal Family Systems (IFS)
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.
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.
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.
Who makes up the parts of your internal whole?
IFS and other parts-work modalities facilitate direct reduction of internal conflict, providing a last and felt sense of internal support, confidence, and awareness.
