Treatment Approach

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Compassion Focus Therapy
  • Experiential
  • Internal Family Systems
  • Psychodynamic
  • Somatic
Approach Description: You can expect that I will prioritize creating a foundation of a relationship with you. Otherwise, my practice is mainly rooted in the lens of IFS, which is an approach for individuals despite the full name being "Internal Family Systems". This approach recognizes that the nervous system makes a lot more sense when we see our internal experiences as different "parts" of us (like a little family inside with all of the expected internal conflicts). We already use this "parts" language often to consider, for example, “a part of me wants to have a nutritious diet but another part of me wants to eat whatever I want”. It sounds like this approach would require a lot of imagination, but in reality, this approach simplifies down the complex neuropathways (including unhelpful narratives about life) which could be leading to your struggles. It also makes these neuropathways easier to access and update to the present day. What we might see as our current problems are really solutions which were used in the past at a time when these solutions (like a behaviour or belief) were needed for our protection, and in the present day, it might be time for some help with releasing these behaviours or beliefs which are no longer serving you.

Andrea Rowell Practice Description
One of the approaches to therapy that makes the most sense to me is the IFS (internal family systems) approach. While I am trained in many therapeutic approaches, I often use the IFS approach because of the neuroscience behind why it works. You may be seeking support to recover from trauma, and IFS often provides hope because it becomes clear over our time together that memory re-consolidation is happening and helping you to feel more authentic and "free". Beyond treatment for trauma, I also support people experiencing anxiety, depression, burnout from stress, and also specifically neurodivergent burnout. Beyond the core relationship we create, I can recommend things to help your progress: I love gathering a treasure trove of practical exercises, readings, podcasts, videos, etc. to help you if you're looking for something to apply right away and between sessions. I would be glad to explain my primary approaches in a free consultation. My consultations are by phone or video, though I have both virtual and in-person availability for sessions.
