My Mission

My mission as an IFS practitioner is to harness the incredible potential of Internal Family Systems to create a cascading wave of positive change that ripples through individuals, communities, and ultimately, the world. 

With a deep belief in the power of self-discovery and healing, I envision a future where individuals transform their lives by embracing the wisdom of their internal parts, fostering self-compassion and resilience. As these empowered individuals engage within their communities, the impact of this work radiates outward, promoting empathy, understanding, and cooperation among diverse groups. 

Through my commitment to this mission, I aspire to contribute to a world where the transformative potential of IFS shapes a more interconnected future for all.

My Education and Training

With a BA in Psychology and Leadership Studies and 14 years of dedicated coaching experience, I have honed my skills in guiding individuals towards their fullest potential. Complementing this journey, I have further enriched my expertise through rigorous Level 1 and Level 2 training in the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model by the esteemed IFS Institute. This comprehensive training equips me with the tools to delve deep into the intricacies of the human psyche, fostering profound healing and transformation. I have also served as a Program Assistant for IFS Level 1 training. 

My unique blend of coaching and IFS allows me to offer a holistic approach that nurtures personal growth and emotional well-being. It's important to note that I am not a licensed psychotherapist, so I do not diagnose or treat. Discover more about my practitioner profile at the IFS Institute.
