Internal Family Systems Therapy

Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy is an evidence-based approach that effectively treats depression, anxiety, shame, guilt, and addictions while also improving overall well-being.

The foundation of IFS is that our mind is composed of multiple, distinct parts, or sub-personalities, each with its own perspective, interests, memories, and viewpoint. IFS holds that every part has a positive intention and a valuable role, even if its methods can be problematic. Parts may be forced into extreme roles due to life experiences, but at their core, they're trying to help.​


The good news is that every person has a 'Self',  an innate essence that contains the qualities of calmness, compassion, connectedness and courage. Healing happens when a person's  Self develops a relationship with their parts because when parts trust the Self they can let go of their extreme roles and transform. 

The goal of IFS is to help an individual's Self to take on a leadership role. This means that the Self is the one making decisions and leading the individual's internal system, rather than their parts.
