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

May 12, 2023

On today's episode I chat with Regina Wei who wrote the chapter on Asian and Pacific Islander Clients for the Altogether Us book.

Regina Wei (she/they), LMFTA is an IFS Level 1 trained Couples and Family Therapist in Washington state who has a specialization in sex therapy. Her work centers folks who identify as BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ and focuses on helping clients heal racial, intergenerational, sexual, and other traumas. Regina has an MA in Couples and Family Therapy and an MA in Modern Chinese Literature and Culture. She has written a novel, set in China, that deals with the themes of trauma, healing, and cross-cultural connections and misses.


We talk about:

  • Her Novel (Themes of Healing!)
  • Collectivism and Authority
  • Holding space for Tension
  • Racialized bodies
  • Intergenerational and historical trauma
  • Heritage as a Protective Factor
  • The role of Shame
  • Recommendations for Therapists
