You’re invited to join me and IFS Clinicians across the country and ponds, as we welcome your hard-working Healer parts, tend to your IFS questions and deepen your experience and competence with the Model. The more Self led you are, the greater ease and spaciousness you will embody.

“Laura is warm, open, gentle and committed to encouraging you in your practice. She offers the wisdom of her experience of IFS therapy as well as inviting this from us. She sensitively facilitates you to consider your inner process.”

~Melanie (UK) BACP ACC Psychotherapeutic Counsellor Level 3 IFS

“Laura so naturally creates this safe, sacred space which invites the group to really drop in deeply and bypass any masky pretenses and connect with real treasure both for our psychotherapy parts but most of all for the nourishment of ourselves as a whole.  I walked away with immediate support in using IFS with my clients and also feel rejuvenated, so I’m bringing more Self energy to my clients (and my family and friends and life). I feel honored to sing the praises of Laura and this gorgeous offering.”

~ Shimila Keenum, LCSW

“The consolidation and clarification of the vast amount of material I’ve been exposed to was the greatest value of the consultation group for me, along with meeting some amazing therapists and getting the benefit of Laura’s experience with and understanding of the model as well. I’m very grateful.”

~Amy Klatzkin, LMFT, San Francisco

Laura is particularly talented at creating a safe, warm, intellectually stimulating and welcoming space.
Her group is perfectly balanced – there is time for connection and support with other therapists and plenty of space for IFS-focused learning.
I walk away from each group with a new nugget of IFS wisdom from Laura and my peers. It is a space that is recharging, energizing, and fun.

~ Carrisa Aresta LCSW, Portland, OR

“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 able to discuss challenging cases was so helpful! Additionally, witnessing Laura work one-on-one with other members of the group was very powerful and informative.”

~Tiffany Forsyth, Spokane
