IFS Training: Richard Schwartz‘s Internal Family Systems Institute provides training in IFS to practitioners through intensive programs called Level One, Level Two and Level Three. At any point a year or after taking a Level One training a practitioner can apply to become a Certified IFS Therapist with IFS-I by completing further learning, supervision and by having had their work reviewed and accepted by an approved IFS-I certifier. Derek Scott also provides training in IFS and anyone that has completed his Skills and Competencies Course is considered IFS Informed.

IFIO Training: Intimacy from The Inside Out (IFIO) is a form of couples therapy with its roots in IFS. Toni Herbine-Blank and the IFS-I provide a special Level Two (IFIO) that teaches this couples protocol. In addition Toni provides Advanced IFIO trainings.

I first met one of my own distressed parts in therapy a decade ago, and with the guidance of my own therapist (psychodynamically trained), I was able to integrate that part into myself. I felt an immediate shift and throughout the years guided clients to integrate parts of themselves in similar ways. It wasn’t until early 2022 when I read Richard Schwartz’ book Internal Family Systems Therapy did my approach to working with clients shift to their significant and obvious benefit. Later that year, I participated in Derek Scott’s Stepping Stone course, immediately followed by his Advanced Weekend course. I view IFS as a gift to humanity. Not only does this approach have an effect on how you feel in your daily life, but it has reaches into spiritual dimensions as well. Additionally, I am trained in a trauma-informed approach and CBT.
