Areas of Work

Life is complex for all of us on many different levels. Navigating how to live, enjoy and thrive in the world can be hard.

We often focus on what is happening outside of us. What other people do, how our partner or kids act, or the decisions our leaders make. It leaves us powerless.

When we focus on ourselves it's usually to manage the parts of us that we don’t like or the conflicting emotions we have about something.  

In a sense we feel powerless here too, because we are fighting with the parts of ourselves that we don’t like.  - I mean, how many times have you decided you want to be healthier and then eaten the chocolate cake?

With Internal Family Systems(IFS) we stop the battle and work with our less desirable parts and the conflicting emotions. Moving towards the parts of us we want to change instead of fighting them off is what brings about lasting change.

Individual work

I offer one-to-one sessions of 60 or 90 minutes. These are sessions to focus on your internal journey and healing using the IFS model weekly or bi-weekly.

Intensive Journeys

The traditional model of weekly sessions isn't for everyone. Intensive Journeys provide customized support for targeted mental health and wellness goals. It’s setting aside continues time to get to know and heal your inner system in a much more time efficient way. 

Think of it as retreat-style inner work for personal growth and trauma healing. Intensives Journeys are essentially a multi-day mental health retreat. While the traditional weekly hour-long format might go on for months or years, Intensives allow you to experience the luxury of focusing solely on your healing and growth for 1-3 days. 

Intensives allow you to find faster relief and long-lasting improvement.

An Intensive Journey can be instead of weekly sessions or as an adjunct to your ongoing work. 

Ongoing sessions will be available if you want to continue and deepen the healing in your inner system.

Supervision groups

These are groups for IFS practitioners and therapists who want to grow in their knowledge and understanding of the IFS model. 

We meet for 2 hours and keep the groups small so there’s plenty of time for each person. In these groups you can bring questions, receive live supervision while practicing with another participant, or work with the parts of you that get activated in your work. 

 

If you are interested in joining one of the supervision groups, please send me an email.
