Internal Family Systems
Internal Family Systems Therapy in Georgia and Minnesota
Have you ever said, "A part of me feels..." or "there is a part of me that feels like...?" If so, this is a common feeling or thought many of us have.
Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on helping individuals understand and work with these different parts or subpersonalities within their psyche. IFS takes the time to help you explore the part of you, for example, that still loves your mother or daughter or the part of you that gets angry at your mother or daughter. IFS works to assist you in addressing all your thoughts, feelings, or parts to get to know your system of parts better.
In IFS therapy, I will help you identify and understand your different parts and the roles they play in your life. I work with mothers or daughters who are having a difficult time with their relationships to support them in developing a healthy relationship with their parts and to help the parts work together in a more cohesive and harmonious way. This process can involve exploring the origins and functions of the different parts, helping the person gain insight into their motivations and behaviors, and working to resolve conflicts and heal past traumas.
The goal of IFS therapy is to help the person develop a strong and healthy sense of self and to create more inner harmony and balance. It is a holistic approach that recognizes the complexity of the human psyche and seeks to help the person integrate all aspects of their being in a way that promotes healing and well-being.

IFS Therapy and Mother-Daughter Trauma
I am a therapist who helps individuals understand and heal from the emotional wounds of their mother-daughter relationships. Using Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, I guide individuals in exploring the different parts of their psyche and the roles they play in their lives. This process allows individuals to gain insight into their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors related to their mother-daughter relationships and to work towards resolving conflicts and healing past traumas. By slowing down and getting in touch with their inner selves, individuals can gain a deeper understanding of their inner system and how it impacts their relationships with others. Ultimately, IFS therapy can help individuals heal and grow, allowing them to create more harmonious and fulfilling relationships with their mothers, daughters, and other important people in their lives.
