We dig into what Internal Family Systems is and how it can help you. If you have heard of Parts Work, then join me, someone sho’s also heard of parts work, because I learned some helpful lessons during today’s conversation.

Who is Biz Cush?

Elizabeth (Biz) Cush is a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC), a women’s life coach, and business owner in Annapolis, MD. She’s also the host of the Awaken Your Wise Woman podcast.   As a coach, she helps midlife women, who feel overwhelmed and unfulfilled, embrace and embody their inner wise woman so that they can fully enjoy the beautiful life they’ve created.

Elizabeth shares her story and why she decided to specialize in what she does.  She then explains what the Internal Family Systems Model is and uses a personal example from Susie’s life to show how helpful and healing it can be.

Further, we talk about the different ways that parts work can support clients with anxiety, low confidence, and/or a loud inner critic. I loved our conversation and am so excited to share it with you!
