MENTORING GROUP for Advanced Clinicians

seeking support Launching & Leading your own Consultation Groups!

Cultivating compassion, hope and healing for over 25 years

SundaWelcome to opportunities for integrating the transformational practice of Internal Family Systems!

IFS “accidentally” discovered me in 2008, ten years into my career as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I was burned out, discouraged and isolated. This transformational framework changed my life and kept me in the field 14 years later with more energy and hope than I ever could have imagined.

IFS teaches us how we relate to ourselves and one another from a place of inclusion, compassion and curiosity. I am motivated to connect and support IFS Professionals and provide a direct experience of this powerful framework.

My IFS Consultation Groups connect IFS professionals, reduce burnout and isolation and help you be more Self-led, energized and effective. I help clinicians deepen and embody Self leadership so they can be more present for clients in a sustainable, life-giving way. Imagine that for a moment… It really is possible!

As an Approved AAMFT Supervisor and IFSI Consultant for Certification, I offer:

  • Monthly IFS Consultation Groups for Pre-Level 1,  Level 1+/Stepping Stone, and Advanced L2+ IFS Therapists and Practitioners
  • Visiting Consultant to an existing group or clinic
  • Monthly Individual Consultation (schedules permitting)
  • Monthly AAMFT Approved Group Supervision (as a secondary supervisor only)
  • Retreats, Workshops and Speaking Engagements
  • All IFS Consultation hours with me count towards IFS Certification and Re-Certification if needed.

I am grateful and fortunate that my IFS foundation was built working with founder, Dr. Richard Schwartz, individually for a year in 2008. The past two summers I have assisted him for a weeklong training at the Cape Cod Institute.  I have maintained regular IFS therapy and supervision with two IFS Lead Trainers since 2009 and been IFS Certified since 2010. We can’t take our clients farther than we’ve gone ourselves. I’m committed to doing my work and supporting other Healers doing theirs. Please visit my Consultation Page for details on current Offerings or Contact Me to inquire about consulting with your group, speaking engagements or retreats. I’m not accepting new therapy clients at this time. 

Areas of specialty include disordered eating, sexual trauma, couples, infidelity, families with adult children, HSPs, body-oriented practices, athletes, brain injuries/concussions, chronic illness, FOO and Self of the Therapist.

Separate Groups for Pre Level 1,

L1 /S.Stone Grads, & L2+ IFS professionals

“Laura’s consult group has been a wonderful addition to my circle of support. I feel safe with Laura at the helm and I highly recommend her groups to my fellow IFS therapists or practitioners. If you are practicing without peer support you are really missing out. Getting feedback from up to 8 others on challenges you are having is incredibly helpful and heart-opening. I have a part that thinks he doesn’t need support. This group has proven him wrong.”

~Everett Considine, Certified Level 3 IFS Practitioner and Co-author of “ReZoom” from Bright Line Eating

Being led by Laura in her IFS Consultation was like a nurturing reprieve from the day. I felt safe immediately with her and the group space because she fosters a welcoming and warm environment. Laura is a gentle leader and obvious expert in IFS and I appreciated the way she grounded the space with meditation, and made sure that everyone’s voice was heard if they needed that. Laura holds the consultative space openly but with reliability and clarity. Would strongly recommend Laura to anyone looking for an IFS teacher and leader. Being in the IFS consultative space with Laura was incredibly helpful in a short amount of time. Grateful for the experience and the learning.

Dr. Rachel Greenberg

Clinical Psychologist - Berkeley, CA

Laura offered such a genuine, compassionate, respectful, trauma-informed presence to our community, adding the level of safety my scared parts were concerned might be hard to achieve on Zoom. Even with so little time to tend to so many people, what a gift to see people’s triggered parts soften, relax, express, and heal right before our very eyes.

Laura’s IFS facilitation is a treasure to parts that are just desperate to be loved. She is a hope merchant for hopeless parts indeed.
