Growth Opportunities for Therapists

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. 

$170 /1 hour session (No current availability)

Group Consultation

Up to 6-8 therapists will share time for IFS case consultation, Q&A, brief demos of therapist parts exploration, and 

opportunities to practice more advanced techniques such as direct access. As always, getting to know your own parts along the way will be integral to this work.

$50-75 person /session (Fall session open)

Small Group Practice

Triads of 3 therapists will meet for a series of 1.5 hour supported practice sessions. Over the course of 3 sessions you will each take a turn in role of therapist/client/observer with time built in to debrief and expand upon learnings from the work.

$270 person/3 sessions (No availability)


Contact Info

Regretfully I do not currently have any availability. Please contact me if you would like to be placed in a Fall 2021 consultation group. I will not be taking on new therapy clients until mid-2022 and am not keeping a waitlist at this time.
