INTERNAL FAMILY SYSTEMS PRACTITIONER
Your Life, Reimagined
About the Process
Our work can address acute issues in a few sessions or I can support you in making long term changes, helping you to uncover blocks and shift patterns. In the bustle of modern society, it is more important than ever to make time and space to explore our deeper desires and dreams to help us to move toward alignment and living authentically. Feeling stuck and uninspired is a great beginning place for working together and provides important compost for creating a meaningful path forward. I tailor your journey to your unique needs, meeting you where you are and moving as slowly as you desire.
IFS and Depth Work might be right for you if:
-You are looking to find a deeper meaning in your life
– You are ready to embark on a new journey
-You want to live your life more authentically
–You are feeling stuck and struggling with finding your path or direction
-You are navigating a difficult time in life and want a supportive, nonjudgmental space
-You are struggling with making a big decision in your life

What is Internal Family Systems?
Internal Family Systems is a powerful, transformative, evidence-based model. It works with "inner parts" which contain valuable qualities and information to help us heal and become integrated. When people say "part of me feels this way and part of me feels that way" it can indicate an inner conflict. IFS helps us to be curious about the different needs and desires within us. This powerful work can help move us into a state of confidence as we step into a life that is aligned with our deeper purpose. IFS is a non pathologizing model, there are no bad parts and all parts are welcome. I offer individual sessions as well as facilitate IFS workshops throughout the year. I also offer individual training packages for coaches and therapists wanting to integrate IFS into your practice.
What is Depth Psychology Work?
Depth Work is a model that utilizes depth modalities such as Jungian Psychology, dream work, working with symbols, alchemy, tarot and art to engage wisdom, self-discovery and healing. My favorite Zen koan is "Not knowing is most intimate". It took me many years and a lot of inner work to develop a relationship with uncertainty, but through the work I realized that it is a necessary component for big life changes. If you are ready to step into the unknown, I can offer support as we work together to shape your vision into a new reality.
LGBTQI Support Services
I offer support to LGBTQI individuals and their families around issues of coming out and transition support, as well as other issues unique to LGBTQI individuals and their families. I have extensive experience in LGBTQI crisis work and working with transgender adults and youth and their families. Additionally, I offer competency trainings to therapists and organizations.
Autism/Neurodivergence Support and Advocacy
I have spent the last two decades involved in work with the autistic community, including raising two children on the autism spectrum. I love working with autistic/neurodivergent individuals and families needing support. I use an affirming, non-pathologizing model, recognizing the strengths and gifts that individuals hold while supporting individuals and families during the challenges that may arise while trying to navigate services and support in a neurotypical centered society. I have extensive experience with individuals with varying support needs, from those living independently to individuals needing substantial daily support.

My name is Orlando, and I am an Internal Family Systems and Depth Psychology Practitioner.

I hold formal psychology training with two associate degrees in Psychology and Social and Behavioral Sciences and a BA in Psychology, and am currently a returning social work graduate student. I have over five years experience as a crisis counselor on a suicide hotline, and a twenty year history working in autism and mental health advocacy. I have conducted LBGTQI+ competency trainings for mental health and medical professionals for the past six years.
