Welcome to IFS PAGE A DAY.com. I am a clinical psychologist trained and certified in an evidenced-based practice called Internal Family Systems, or IFS. See my ABOUT IFS page. I'll be posting wisdom from IFS or that supports the IFS model every day to remind all of us to be more Self-led in our lives rather than parts-led. The purpose of this site is to spread the word about IFS with the hope that we can better relate to ourselves and each other with compassion, curiosity, courage, clarity, calm, creativity, confidence, and connectedness.

Apricots and gillyflowers.

- William Carlos Williams

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
“Each day I am thankful for nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, dreams that turned into reality and likes that turned into loves.”
“The best-smelling month? I’ll make a case for December: evergreen, frost, wood smoke, cinammon…”
