Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Issaquah, WA
This is like inner child work for the intellectual - IFS gives us language to conceptualize the different "parts" of ourselves that have developed distinct roles in maintaining our wellbeing. Identifying your parts can help us recognize the effects of trauma and internalized beliefs from childhood, and provides you an empowered way to change your internal system.
I specialize in treating complex trauma, which often causes complex-PTSD. Complex trauma is often caused by chronic emotional abuse, neglect, abandonment - usually rooted in childhood and/or adult relationships. Maybe you experience frequent emotional distress or overwhelm, feel triggered in relationships, have deep-seated beliefs that you don't deserve love, or know you have experienced intense or repeated relational harm. I have so much compassion and hope that we can find healing for you.
