With Internal Family Systems we are working with different parts of the self to help them reconnect in present day. We all have parts of ourselves that have broken off from the self as a means of protection. These parts essentially get frozen in time and often when they are activated we act in a way that does not seem like ourselves or in a way that can be destructive. IFS is a loving and kind way to work with those younger parts of ourselves and help them rejoin us in new and healthy ways.
EMDR is a process where we are able to identify and process target memories that are creating distress for someone because they are unprocessed traumas. This is done through bilateral eye movements.
CBT includes several techniques and processes that help us to identify negative patterns of thought about yourself and the world and to challenged these thoughts in order to adjust the lens through which we see the world to one that is more accurate and supportive.
