Jessica Sorci

Pronouns are she/her.


I’m a therapist, I see clients, supervise Associates and continue to develop ideas at the junction of maternal mental health and Internal Family Systems.


My IFS story: as a Level 3, Internal Family Systems Approved Clinical Consultant, I support other clinicians on the path to IFS Certification. I've had the privilege of participating in advanced depth training in Intimacy From the Inside Out (working with couples using IFS) and enjoy supporting couples in learning how to have better conversations about the things that matter most.


My Story

I’m a mom, a step-mom, a wife and creative partner and most of all, a seeker of the truth. I’ve always been intensely driven to get to the root of things. Or rather - I’ve always had a part that drove me to understand and embrace my exiled pain and make sense of it and then find people to share it with. Throughout my life, my mom had significant mental health challenges and didn’t provide the kind of mothering I needed. For all my years, I have been obsessed with motherhood: reckoning with my own childhood wounds, trying to understand what happened to my mom that kept her from mothering well - and then figuring out how to grow myself up so that I could be the kind of mom I aspired to be. Internal Family Systems brought me the structure I needed so that my courage could come forth and support my discovery of all the truths. So much healing has happened in my heart and I'm thrilled to have arrived at a place in my life where I can share healing with so many other people. 

Thank you all for being here. It means so much to my young parts who needed to make sense and needed a witness.
