Internal Family Systems Therapy Embodying the Healing Wisdom

TRANSFORMATIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY

The world’s religions teach that there is an untarnished essence within us, a Self from which wisdom, healing, and spiritual energy flow. We rarely experience this Self because it is obscured by self-protective psychological mechanisms, or lost in the fear, pain, and shame of past trauma. 

Join creator of the Internal Family Systems model, Richard C. Schwartz, and clinical psychologist, Jeanne Catanzaro, and learn to bring the essence of yourself forward with natural compassion and confidence through Internal Family Systems (IFS).

The IFS model guides you to:

  • Access the Self and bring its natural compassion and confidence into daily life.
  • Connect with a detailed map of your psyche, including all subpersonalities and their inner conflicts.
  • Form healing relationships with these subpersonalities.
  • Experience profound shifts in previously constraining feelings and beliefs. 

This program is designed for everyone including people new to the model, mental-health professionals, therapists experienced with IFS, psychologists, and social workers of all levels. Whether you want to deepen your skills or do personal work, this program offers the opportunity for transformative inner exploration and learning.

NOTE This program includes optional afternoon yoga practices led by IFS-informed bodyworker and yoga teacher, Diane Simpson.


What Is Internal Family Systems?

Internal Family Systems is a powerfully transformative, evidence-based model of psychotherapy. We believe the mind is naturally multiple and that is a good thing. Our inner parts contain valuable qualities, and our core Self knows how to heal—allowing us to become integrated and whole. In IFS, all parts are welcome. IFS is a movement. A new, empowering paradigm for understanding and harmonizing the mind and, thereby, larger human systems. One that can help people heal and helps the world become a more compassionate place.
