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.
I have a masters degree in depth psychology & counseling from Pacifica Graduate Institute - the leading institution for depth psychology. It is an honor to find myself rooted in the lineage of Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, James Hillman, Michael Meade, Robert Bly, Marion Woodman, and many more. Instead of simply changing unwanted behaviors, depth psychology helps us address the root cause.
All life is relationship. I've learned this fact in both my graduate psychotherapy training, and through spending time with indigenous cultures around the world. This means that each person requires their own unique therapy. I won’t try to slot you into a theory or category, or try and “fix” you. Instead, I work through building our relationship, and learning about who you really are.
There’s a good chance that you’ve found your way here because something in your life feels off. Maybe you feel a deep lack of purpose and meaning, or that you haven’t been able to find your true calling yet. Perhaps you’re struggling with communicating and connecting with your partner. Or, you don’t have a partner at all, and want to figure out who you need to become to find the right one.
My approach to working with men draws from my training in Jungian and depth psychology. I integrate masculine archetypes and mythology to help you chart your inner landscape. I also incorporate Internal Family Systems to help uncover and integrate the wounded or reactive “parts” of you that may be the source of your problems. This work extends to all sexual orientations and male-identified people.
Prior to becoming a psychotherapist I worked with National Geographic Student Expeditions and Carpe Diem Education as an experiential educator and guide, leading groups of adolescents across 10 countries. Especially with the advent of the #MeToo movement, boys are now more than ever being asked to rapidly change their behavior and become educated around issues of consent, sexuality, and power.
Each unique person requires their own unique therapy. I won’t try to slot you into a theory or category, or try and “fix” you. Instead, I work through building our relationship, listening for the deeper meaning in what you have to say, and learning about who you really are. Using both depth psychology and Internal Family System, I work to heal the root of your problems, not just the surface issue.
Our sadness, issues, and fears are often rooted in the unconscious, or what Jung called our 'shadow'. Depth psychology can help you navigate the turbulent waters of life by framing your life and struggles in the context of the greater web of human experience. This is often done through working with dreams, archetypes, and transformative life experiences such as initiation and rites of passage.
