Internal Family Systems Therapy

A treatment for big and little traumas in your life.

Recent research confirms that mind-body approaches to psychotherapy are the most enduring and effective. “IFS” or Internal Family Systems Therapy, was developed by Richard Schwartz, Ph.D, a family therapist 20 years ago.  It is a mindfulness-based approach to inner healing, which allows the client and therapist to join together in a collaborative partnership of self-growth and healing. As a certified IFS Therapist,  I can guide you to create emotional relief almost immediately and safely.

 

By learning to activate your Self—your spiritual center of knowing and safety—you can explore some of the many parts that make up your total being. Parts acting without your leadership can react and cause many problems in your life and in your relationships. Together we will learn about your parts, what they need from you, and how you can become connected with them as their leader. With this self-leadership, you can reach a state of curiosity, non-reactiveness, integration, emotional resilience, inner-connectedness and calm.

 

 

The best way to explore IFS is in individual therapy.  IFS is also very effective with couples and is a way for each partner to get the tools to do their own individual work with their parts over time.  We work together as therapist and client to meet your goals and we can focus specifically on the parts that are causing symptoms that are challenging you in the present moment, so the work can be focused on a particular problem area that is causing you to feel out of balance in your life or in your relationships.

Here’s some reasons to build this powerful tool into your life right now

What is an Intensive? It is an opportunity to schedule a 2 or 3 hour time block to explore a specific issue with which you want to find some clarity or resolution quickly on an issue that is causing you much distress. If you are experiencing anger outbursts, overwhelming emotional reactions, panic and anxiety, sleep disturbances, relationship difficulties, parenting concerns, overwhelming feelings that you don’t understand, reactions that are not serving you or causing pain in relationships, unresolved grief, unresolved traumas, depression or exhaustion, negativity, lack of pleasure or joy in life — all of these can be the focus of an IFS Intensive with you alone or with you and your partner.
