Long-term results are what we all want. Many of my clients have good success with Internal Family Systems (IFS), a relatively new model of psychotherapy for both individuals and couples.
IFS is becoming a widely recognized, innovative approach to many human problems. Symptoms are not merely managed, but all parts of the human system are heard, comforted, and healed by the person himself or herself. Couples can more easily see the dance of old patterns between them and replace criticism and blame with greater compassion for each other, creating meaningful, long-lasting change in their relationship.
Over the last two years, I have trained in IFS and now use it extensively. I see great results with people suffering from a wide variety of concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress, and trauma. IFS is also a wonderful tool for relationships and personal growth.
