Workshops, Training & Consultation

I am a Lead Trainer for the IFS Institute, the official training organization for the Internal Family Systems model of psychotherapy, developed by Richard Schwartz, PhD. 


I also offer virtual & in person workshops and consultation for practitioners. 


You can view this video, also featured on the Institute's website, about my approach as a trainer.

Trailheads to Transformation:
Harvesting the Gifts of the Unburdened System

The IFS Institute Continuity Program for 2021 includes this 8-part series created by Mariel Pastor. This special membership program and practitioner community was created to deepen the knowledge and skills of those who are enrolled in or have completed IFS Level 1 Training, and those who have already participated in the IFS Online Circle. Deepen your knowledge and skills of IFS on this global platform for continuous learning. Practitioners around the world can stay connected, share ideas, and support each other.

Enrollment opens 3 times a year (May, September, and January) as we explore content specific modules together for 4 months. Past topics include, Trauma, Neuroscience and IFS; Depression, Anxiety and Shame, and Diversity and Inclusion.


Personalized group consultation is available in a series of 6 sessions.

Consultation is available for graduates of IFS Level 1, 2, or 3 training only. Group size & meeting length varies & cost is adjusted accordingly. Groups meet monthly via Zoom, though you may inquire about in-person groups in Portland, OR. These hours contribute towards IFS Certification and Recertifi-cation requirements.

If you're interested in Group Consultation, please form a group prior to reaching out. We'll connect with you when scheduling begins & availability opens up.
