Internal Family Systems

 "There's a part of all of us that longs

to know that even what's weakest about

us is still redeemable and can ultimately

count for something good" 

Fred Rogers

You've likely heard yourself say, "Part of me is really excited about this new experience and another part of me is terrified." Or "On the one hand, I feel happy in my relationship and then sometimes, I feel trapped." Well, who are those parts and how is it that they create such inner conflict?


Welcome to Internal Family Systems (IFS), a powerful therapeutic model that offers a unique and holistic approach to healing. At times, we all experience inner conflicts that leave us feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or disconnected. With IFS, we honor and welcome all parts of ourselves, recognizing that each has a positive intention and unique contribution to our lives. IFS offers a safe and compassionate space for you to connect with your inner parts, such as the Inner Critic, the Worrier, or the Escapist, to name a few. By exploring these parts and the underlying wounds they carry, we can begin to release the burden of painful emotions and traumas, creating space for healing and growth. As we learn to direct our Self's powerful healing qualities, such as curiosity, compassion, and calmness, toward our parts, we begin to feel more integrated, grounded, and resilient. IFS can help you to access your true Self, to live more authentically and joyfully, and to develop deeper connections with others.

Builds cages for everyone

she knows,

While the Sage,

Who has to duck her head

when the moon is low,

Keeps dropping keys all night long
