Be patient towards all that is unsolved in our heart and try to love the questions themselves

by Rainer Maria Rilke, says what IFS means to me and how I work with clients.

Our parts have wisdom for our healing, whether they come as questions, experiences that leave us wondering what that was about, or experiences that leave us feeling more aware of who we are, what we are about and what we want.  My background in private practice over the last 18 years is a combination of exercise psychology and psychotherapy with humor and fun added to the mix. Currently, as an Assistant Trainer with IFS, my work has deepened as my depth of understanding about IFS as evolved.  Please see my website: www.lewisburgcounseling.com

n/a
Oak Park, IL 60303
United States

VIEW APPEARANCES (Workshops and Retreats 

Richard Schwartz began his career as a systemic family therapist and an academic. Grounded in systems thinking, Dr. Schwartz developed Internal Family Systems (IFS) in response to clients’ descriptions of various parts within themselves. He focused on the relationships among these parts and noticed that there were systemic patterns to the way they were organized across clients. He also found that when the clients’ parts felt safe and were allowed to relax, the clients would experience spontaneously the qualities of confidence, openness, and compassion that Dr. Schwartz came to call the Self. He found that when in that state of Self, clients would know how to heal their parts.

A featured speaker for national professional organizations, Dr. Schwartz has published many books and over fifty articles about IFS.

Watertown, MA 02472

I love the IFS model deeply and it combines my careers as a clinical psychologist, animal welfare activist, and wildlife photographer. Given my clinical expertise in trauma and dissociation (my 1991 doctoral dissertation was on the phenomenological experience of dissociation), I have trained in many things (e.g. group dynamics, hypnosis, EMDR, addictions) and have let my heart and sense of what is true be my guides. Once I met IFS it provided the glue that has run through all the other constructs from which I emanate. This includes a knowledge of and fondness for the 12-Steps as a form of spiritual practice and a concern with human addiction and greed as it destroys the planet. I know that the more we all can come from a Self-led place, the more we can affect others to do so as well.  I am an experienced teacher, supervisor and therapist and enjoy using this model to help people with relationship to themselves, their loved ones and the world as a whole.
