ABOUT MY PROCESS

WHAT TO EXPECT

Change starts with a simple yet powerful realization: when you begin caring for your inner world, your external world transforms. Similar to tending a garden, we start by tending to the soil - establishing practices and rituals that fortify the foundation of our inner landscape. Then we weed - clearing away what no longer serves us, making room for new growth. Once there is space cleared within ourselves, we get clear on what seeds we want to plant & nourish - what are your seeds of intention that you want to cultivate in your life?  Then by consistently watering and shedding light on what has been planted, we allow the seeds of intention to take root and flourish.

My practice is built around this philosophy, structured through an "8-Phase Journey" I've developed from my experience working with people over the last 14 years. It's not a straight line but more of an intertwined path where your personal goals and instincts lead the way. I'm here to support you, offering a secure and encouraging environment for your growth towards resilience and balance.

HOW IT WORKS

8 Phases of the Journey

Moving through the "8 Phases of the Journey" is like going through the essential steps of nurturing a garden or observing the moon's phases - each phase has its time, its purpose, and its unique contribution to the whole cycle.

RECLAIM THE SHADOW

Get clear on where you are now & identify the habits & patterns that got you here. Create clarity on where you want to go & what seeds of intention you want to plant for our work together.

Discover ways to nourish the seeds of intention we plant together. Cultivate a daily practice that tends to your soul, dreams & desires.

Develop a system of structure in your life so that you can continue to commit & deepen into your intentions & find your unique flow.

As resistance, limiting beliefs & habitual patterns arise in the process of moving forward, learn tools to meet yourself in this place with compassion to avoid getting stuck in loops that hold you back. Make the unconscious, conscious.

OWN YOUR VOICE & SHARE YOUR GIFTS

Continue to unlearn & de-program old stories & beliefs that have been keeping you stuck where you are. Re-write your life narriative.

Often times our pain can be one of our greatest teachers if we're willing to feel it & lean into it. Alchemize this pain by understanding it's purpose & turn your mess into your message.

Identify all of the ways perfectionism sneaks into your life and holds you back from moving forward from all that you want to embody & create. Explore a more liberating path moving forward.

Embody your unique purpose, move forward confidently in your life, share your message & gifts with the world.

In our sessions, we'll navigate through these phases in a way that feels right for you, always cycling back or accelerating forward as needed. This flexibility ensures that our approach is personalized and responsive, adapting to uncover and nourish your inner strengths. It’s about diving deep, but embracing the journey at your own pace. This is your invitation to heal, to grow, and to thrive on your own terms.

SESSION STRUCTURE

the structure

In our sessions, we’ll go beyond the confines of traditional talk therapy, finding transformation in the sacred space between words, the silent understandings & the synergy of your mind & body. Through a variation of practices, we’ll tap into your inner wisdom & use it as a guide to navigate your journey. Where you're at, what you need & where you aspire to be are ultimately leading this process. 

 

My role is to provide a supportive container & safe space that encourages you towards fulfilling your greatest potential. With each meeting, I'll share practices, tools & insights that invite you to take charge of your healing & growth. Together, we'll map out a plan that’s all about making real, tangible changes that align with what you want to become & embody.

 

This is more than just a process; it's a partnership aimed at empowering you to build a life that feels balanced, fulfilling, & authentically yours.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQ

WHAT IS INTERNAL FAMILY SYSTEMS?

The Internal Family Systems Model was developed by Richard Schwartz in the 1980s. 

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a therapeutic approach that identifies and addresses multiple sub-personalities or “parts” within each person’s mental system. Each part has its own viewpoints, feelings, opinions, behaviors, etc. Most parts fall into one of three categories - protectors, firefighters and exiles. The different parts that show up in one’s system are often in conflict with each other and with one’s core Self. The core Self is a concept within IFS that describes the confident, compassionate and curious whole person that is at the core of every individual.

 

IFS focuses on helping one identify the many different parts inside of them, get to know them and how they interact with the other parts, build a relationship to these parts from one’s whole Self, and help heal the parts that are holding onto burdens from the past.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS WORK?

HOW OFTEN DO YOU RECOMMEND DOING SESSIONS TOGETHER?

After you complete a 3 or 6 month program, we will check in to see where you're at, what you're needing and adjust our flow as necessary. Payment plans are available.
