INTERNAL FAMILY SYSTEMS THERAPY (IFS)

Internal Family Systems begins with the belief that we contain multitudes, and that the aspects of ourselves that seem to be causing anxiety, depression, addiction, anger, and other problems are not evils to be eradicated, but parts of us that need to be heard,  witnessed and unburdened.

TRAUMA

Our therapists don't start with the question "What's wrong with you?" They start with the question "What happened to you?" Events in our lives, whether we perceive them now as significant or insignificant, can affect us in unexpected ways.
