The One Inside: An Internal Family Systems (IFS) podcast

May 17, 2024

On today's episode I chat with Molly LaCroix about her new book! This is Molly's second appearance on the podcast. Hear her first episode here: IFS and Why Christians Talk So Much About Love But Often Fail to be Loving with Molly LaCroix - Tammy Sollenberger

Molly is a licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in treating the impact of trauma and adversity. She earned a master’s in marriage and family therapy from Bethel Seminary San Diego, where she returned as an adjunct professor. Molly is a Certified and Level Three-trained IFS therapist and clinical consultant.

We talk about:

  • Integrating Christian spirituality with the IFS model for personal growth and healing
  • Using Hagar's story to introduce Self, with emphasis on self-awareness and connection to the divine
  • Understanding Self and sin in Christian context, using King David as an example
  • Internal work impacting relationships, using Good Samaritan parable as example
  • The importance of internal work for spiritual growth and loving others unconditionally
  • Managers and Firefighters stories found in the Bible
  • Spiritual abuse, Enneagram, and personal growth
  • The power of sacred stories and the importance of diverse voices in theological discussions
