IFS & Coaching
Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Coaching
It is my heartfelt desire to support my clients using the most effective, respectful methods available to help them achieve their goals. I regard our work together as a partnership and I am honored by each and every client that comes my way. In my current practice, I use IFS (Internal Family Systems), coaching, or a combination of the two. Whether you seek services as an individual client or a couple, I tailor my approach according to your goals, needs, and preferences.
I am trained as an IFS-informed practitioner through IFS Canada with Derek Scott, engage in ongoing IFS masterclasses, and meet regularly with both IFS and coaching colleagues to hone my skills. I completed my coach training at the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC).
IFS is a powerful way to heal, grow, and engage in self-discovery. It’s a unique, respectful process that helps you examine why you get stuck in certain behavioral patterns and then create new, more adaptive behaviors. I regularly use IFS practices when working with couples and individuals. To learn more about IFS, please visit my blog.
Coaching is primarily forward-looking and helps people to create the lives they want for themselves. Whether the focus in on relationships, self-development, work, or health, it helps people to clarify who they really are, what they want, and how to get the most out of their lives. Sometimes people struggle to move forward because something in their past keeps them stuck. These blocks can be stubborn and complicated, and in these cases it’s often useful to use IFS as a framework for self-discovery and growth.
