I love to utilize evidence based interventions, such as Internal Family Systems (IFS), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), and Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
My name is Swan Roberts, and I am a licensed therapist, clinical social worker. Before becoming a therapist, I was in the U.S. army for 2.5 years as a medic, 68w. I decided to become a therapist because I have always enjoyed helping people, and when I was getting out of the army, I had my own therapist to help me through that transition, which inspired me to follow this career path. I look forward to helping you on this healing journey. I have experience utilizing IFS, EMDR, and CBT with clients who are working through trauma, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and addiction issues.

I mainly practice Person-Centered Therapy and Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy.
I work with adult clients who feel stuck but still want to build more confidence, more inner peace, and harmonious relationships. I enjoy empowering people to trust in themselves and in their partners. I collaborate best with folks who are smart and creative, spiritual but not necessarily religious. Some have been minorities (e.g., immigrants, LGBTQ+, etc.). Many have been feminists and progressives. Most have struggled with anxiety and depression. All have proven themselves resilient!

I utilized and trained in several modalities used for trauma including Internal Family Systems (level 1), EMDR, and DBT.
Trauma impacts us in ways we can’t imagine. It affects human development and rewires our brain. I remember seeing the impact trauma from childhood had for my adult clients. I remember seeing elementary school children and the impact trauma has on their ability to develop healthy relationships. Processing trauma isn’t something you need to do alone. I can still remember meeting with a teen girl and seeing her relief after processing her trauma and expressing how much better she felt. Working through trauma allows my clients to feel relief and feel a decrease in their daily triggers.

My specialties include trauma-informed nervous-system based therapy, behavior interventions, internal family systems (ifs), somatic therapy, EMDR, and ACT.
Despite having stressful experiences, you are high-functioning. You go to work, you pay your bills, you have meaningful relationships, and on paper, you seem 'fine' from the outside. Inside, you are thinking of the worst case scenario or experiencing an overwhelming amount of thoughts and feelings that "just won't go away". You don't feel great, have unprocessed trauma, and you want to start feeling better. You want to move beyond tolerating trauma and stress, and feel good emotionally and physically. From a nervous system perspective using trauma-therapies I want to empower you in your healing, I know you can feel better.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapists

What is Internal Family Systems therapy?

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a type of talk therapy that focuses on sub-personalities, or “families,” within a person, which may be made up of wounded parts and unpleasant emotions like anger and shame. These sub-personalities can come into conflict with each other and with an individual’s core Self, leaving the person feeling detached from positive traits such as the “8 C’s” of confidence, calmness, creativity, clarity, curiosity, courage, compassion, and connectedness. By healing a patient’s wounded parts, a therapist aims to restore balance and bring on positive change.

How does Internal Family Systems therapy work?

An IFS therapist will work with a patient to identify their particular sub-personalities, recognize the emotions powering them, and release them. By doing so, the patient should become more able to address any underlying problems their sub-personalities may have been trying to protect them from. Ultimately, a patient discovers ways to manage internal and external conflicts on their own, through techniques such as relaxation exercises, journaling, and making charts depicting the relationships between their core Self and their distinct parts.

Does Internal Family Systems therapy work?

IFS therapy has been shown to help people address conditions such as depression, anxiety, panic, fears and phobias, trauma, and substance use disorders. Some research has also found that it can help individuals deal with symptoms of physical health conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, such as pain, everyday functioning, depressive feelings, and low self-compassion. There are some conditions for which IFS treatment, specifically discussions of one’s “parts,” may be less appropriate, such as schizophrenia or other states that involve psychosis or paranoia.

How long does Internal Family Systems therapy take?

As with most forms of talk therapy, there is no set duration or end point for IFS therapy. After becoming comfortable with a therapist and the core concepts of IFS, some patients quickly make progress. While experiences vary, most will find that it is a relatively longer-term therapy, involving months and sometimes years of sessions.
