Learning IFS is a challenging and inspiring process. In individual sessions or groups of 2 to 6 we will explore the model and parts that come up for you as you begin to practice IFS in your work and life.

Services for Therapists

*As an approved clinical consultant for IFS-I consultation hours with Risa will count towards certification for Level 1 graduates.

Individual Consultation

Case consultation including guided exploration of your Self/parts system beginning with clinical trailheads (ie. ‘stuck points’ in your work with clients). Note that professional parts are personal parts, and professional growth is personal growth, however this is a consultative and not a psychotherapeutic relationship.

Suitable for therapists interested in early explorations of IFS as well as those seeking IFS certification.

Limited availability for Ontario therapists working towards certification
