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 am a registered clinical health psychologist in Ontario (CPO #4531) trained in Texas (APA accredited PhD program at Texas A&M College Station & APA accredited doctoral residency at University of Texas at Austin) with over 20 years experience in psychotherapy specializing in work with physicians and front line professionals. I have additional training in Somatic IFS (Susan McConnell) and Advanced level Somatic Experiencing training (SEI). I work in a group practice with other clinicians who share my commitment to mindfulness, compassion and process-based psychotherapy so if I have a wait list you may see someone who works very closely with me or under my direct supervision. I trust your Self leadership.
