Hi, my name is Elizabeth Parsons. I'm a family physician by training but have had a focused practice in psychotherapy since 2007.
I am a level 3 trained certified IFS therapist and IFS-Institute approved consultant. I am also level 2 trained in Sensorimotor psychotherapy. I have additional training in Somatic IFS, Intimacy from the Inside Out, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and mindful self-compassion.
Having experienced the power of groups first hand over many years, both personally and professionally, I have decided to dedicate my work to providing therapeutic group experiences
I work to provide a supportive and compassionate environment for people to explore their inner world while in the company of others.
As a white, cis, heterosexual, able-bodied woman I recognize the many privileges that I experience and I continue to educate myself through an anti-oppressive lens.
My work focuses on a variety of topics and issues, including climate grief, exploring gender identity, interpersonal anxiety and connection, mindful self-compassion, and finding meaning in life.
I look forward to meeting you!
