I specialize in Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Mindful Self-Compassion! I am excited to join your healing journey!
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in , MT
I work with folks who have anticipatory grief, are facing death/their own mortality, are caring for someone who is chronically/terminally ill, adjusting to a new diagnosis, loss of independence or other physical/cognitive capacity, loss of pet, loss of friend/family members, loss due to suicide, loss due to moving/life changes, complicated grief, etc
I work with folks who experience ongoing anxiety that shows up in compulsions, obsessions, rumination, worries, panic attacks, phobias, constant need for control, self-judgmental, need for perfectionism, etc
I myself have a history of religious trauma and spiritual abuse. I have been through a lot of my own therapy and healing in this area. I would love to partner with you on your healing journey through spiritual abuse/religious trauma to regain a sense of empowerment and self-identity in your life.
I am trained to stay in the body through Somatic IFS, polyvagal theories, regulation techniques that create safety in the body and help heal trauma, and mindfulness based body techniques.
I am trained in mindfulness based theories and techniques. I am certified to teach Mindful Self-Compassion and bring it into psychotherapy regularly.
I have been through years of my own therapy in Internal Family Systems and am part of ongoing IFS supervision and consultation. I have been through Level 1 and Level 2 IFS training and am signed up for Level 3. I have been part of continuity programs that focus on somatic IFS, trauma and IFS, sexuality and IFS, addictions and eating disorders.
