Audrey Fernandez-Fraser, LCSW, MDiv, Social Media Coordinator
Audrey is a therapist currently practicing at Downtown Psychiatric Group in Lower Manhattan, providing weekly therapy to approximately 35 individuals and couples of diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds alongside more than 40 other therapists, psychiatrists, and nurse practitioners. She learned IFS in 2009 when her therapist began using its concepts, which inspired her to take Level 1 in 2016 with Ralph Cohen, PhD, LMFT, and Ann Sinko, LMFT.
As part of her new role with the Foundation, Audrey will be running two Twitter accounts: (1) an internal one for the community to share developments about the Foundation, and (2) an externally facing one through which we may share broader messages and engage in thought leadership. Audrey and Sharayah will collaborate on identifying organizations to follow or court for the latter. Audrey is fascinated with the intersections and unions between disparate parts, people, modalities, and cultures, having been raised in a multicultural household and discovering various passionately and (ostensibly) conflicting opinions among her internal parts.
“My intellectual, religious, skeptical, gregarious, therapeutic, and activist parts, to name a few, are thrilled at the opportunity to forge new connections, conversations, and potential collaborations between the IFS community and like-minded people in other modalities, cultures, and walks of life,” she declares. Audrey aspires to bring Self energy to the Twitterverse through appreciation of protective efforts, expressions of compassion toward the downtrodden and exiled among us, and curious questions far and wide, along with some good Self-led memes. Audrey can be reached at Audrey@FoundationIFS.org, where she welcomes suggestions for Twitter outreach. Follow her efforts on Twitter at @FoundationIFS and @FriendsofIFS, and tweet back!
