Through my approach and training as an IFS therapist, I will help guide you so you can better understand yourself through a mind and body approach.
Welcome! I'm glad you're here. Life (relationships, family, work, school, illness, and more) can knock us down causing us to feel a variety of emotions: discouraged, depressed, anxious, disappointed, confused, hopeless, not heard and many more. Whatever struggle or conflict you are facing, you are not alone. Life has many stages and transitions, which is normal, but if you're here, you probably don't feel so "normal". Therapy may feel scary, but most of my clients say it has liberating and life changing. I create a space where nothing is off limits, there are no judgements and every emotion is valid.

I am trained in Brainspotting, a powerful brain-body processing therapy, and am trained in Internal Family Systems.
During times of stress and uncertainty, it may be difficult to get through the day, go to work, or be present with your loved ones. On top of that, these uncertain times can trigger anxiety, overwhelming emotions, and cause us to feel "stuck". Therapy provides an opportunity to find hope for the future, find joy and happiness, stability, and a sense of meaning or purpose in a rapidly changing world. I believe that everyone deserves a nonjudgmental, compassionate, and empathetic therapeutic experience.

I am informed in Internal Family Systems Therapy, an evidenced-based practice that believes the mind is naturally made up of "parts" that each take on a different role and wounded parts that are burdened with feelings like guilt, shame or anger.
Are you a self-aware person who, despite all that awareness, still feel "off?" Still feel anxious, irritable, or depressed? Maybe you've done therapy in the past but it didn't work for you. If you find that you are struggling in interpersonal relationships or with family dynamics, I could be a good fit for you. If you are ready to do the work, to learn to sit with the discomfort that change can often bring, I could be the therapist for you. I enjoy working with early and middle-age adults, first-generation immigrants, and new parents/postpartum mothers.

When your primary relationship is difficult, it impacts every aspect of your life. You can't focus as well at work, you become short and snappy with your children and/or others, you can't sleep, you stop eating or eat too much. It can feel so threatening when someone you care about doesn't seem to care about you, or when you wonder if you even care about them anymore.

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.
