A Few Treatment Options

Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy

IFS is a transformative, evidence-based model of psychotherapy that views our personalities as multiple systems, with inner parts that contain valuable qualities and a core Self that knows how to heal. As an IFS informed therapist, Patty will guide you on an integrated inner journey towards self-leadership, wholeness, and harmony. With IFS, the belief is that 'all parts are welcome', and this respectful, non-pathologizing therapy can be an excellent treatment option for most anyone!


*Patty is also skilled at weaving the techniques of IFS into her Dreamwork.

Exploring Your Dreams - The FiveStar Method of Dream  Analysis 

What if our dreams hold the keys to unlocking some of the struggles we have in waking life? Dreams provide a place where our mind can bring the conflicts of our daily lives into a creative space where we can safely explore alternatives. Through the FiveStar Method of Dream Analysis, our dream responses such as, thoughts, feelings and actions, in addition to dream symbols and characters, are treated with curiosity and respect, allowing you to find interpretations that are personally meaningful to you. Dreamwork can also be helpful in reducing the stress and fear brought about by nightmares, including those associated with PTSD. Whether you've had a disturbing nightmare or an intriguing dream that you'd like to learn more about, exploring your dreams can be a great way to help you safely navigate your dreamscape terrain. 


Patty has been telling, recording and studying dreams since her early childhood, and brings her experience and knowledge in guiding you on an incredible healing journey as you learn more about yourself and your dream life.
