Dr. Spencer says...

Internal Family Systems Therapy... fosters transformation gently, quickly, and effectively. It views the psyche as multi-faceted system consisting of our essential Self or various parts. When the Self is restored to its rightful role as leader of the internal system, it brings harmony and integration.

Individual/Certified Gestalt Therapy is an interpersonal approach which enables the client to become more fully and creatively alive, freeing emotional blocks and unfinished business that diminish satisfaction, fulfillment, & growth & experiment with new ways of being.  Gestalt therapy moves toward action and away from mere talk therapy.

Couples/ Certified Imago Therapy has a very specific structure that is designed to quickly get to the root of a couple's problems.Couples learn to truly communicate and hear the unmet needs they each have that cause fear and pain.  Imago offers clear guidelines to help couples recover that feeling of oneness, joy & aliveness all over again.
