Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an evidence-based, non-pathologizing, experiential therapy model that increases self-compassion, insight into relational patterns and emotional regulation. I became interested in providing IFS therapy to clients after experiencing this transformational model for myself. I’ve heard IFS described as “what I hoped therapy would be” because it's genuinely accepting and respectful toward all thoughts and feelings. Instead of trying to force change, IFS invites us to be curious toward ourselves, and from this compassionate foundation, I’ve been privileged to witness enduring growth in myself and clients.

A little kindness goes a long way!
