Brenda goes beyond being a skilled educator. She brings the work to life. Her presentation at the IFS Annual Convention was of the highest caliber I have experienced. She is organized and precise, delivering just the right balance of theory and practice, like a well-choreographed dance that swept me away and into a real feeling … Read more
Consulting with Brenda is essentially getting to work with an IFS Master. I find her to be a reservoir of great wisdom, spot-on intuition, rock-solid support and sophisticated grace. I count myself lucky to be able to look to her as a resource.

In one session she … Read more

It seems my entire attachment system, which helps me connect with others and holds beliefs about myself, now has … Read more
After just four visits with Brenda, I regained my confidence and found the willingness and ability to rebuild my business.
