"Sometimes I wrestle with my demons, sometimes we just snuggle" -It can be hard to get rid of the demons inside of us, perhaps because they were holding us when nobody else did. What if, instead of getting rid of them, we can learn to love them. -Whether you need help in navigating your relationship with yourself or other's in your life, or a LOSS-we will find a way together.
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.
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) teaches us how to use compassion to access our own feelings & needs & how to communicate with others in an effective way so that everyones needs can get met. It is an perfect model for those looking to improve their relationships with themselves & others. I trained with NVC's founder, Marshall Rosenburg, & I have over 15 years practicing & utilizing NVC with couples & individuals. I continue to deepen my NVC practice & learning by attending an NVC group for myself.
