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.

Fee for individuals

As a trauma therapist I believe in your ability to heal. I offer a deeply caring approach that integrates IFS, Attachment Focused-EMDR and Somatics with a focus on self-acceptance.

I work primarily with complex trauma, C-PTSD, relational trauma and self-discovery. This includes anxiety, perfectionism, infidelity, shame, difficult childhood experiences, attachment wounds, boundaries, sexual abuse, non-monogamy, gaslighting abuse, people pleasing, fawning, numbing, checking out, and many other symptoms associated with trauma or struggle.

I also work with those (including other therapists) who are interested in working with their parts using IFS.

For in-person sessions in Hamilton the therapy space has been designed to feel peaceful and kind to your nervous system. There is also free parking on site, and the location is serviced by several bus routes.
