It's not your fault that resistance keeps winning

If you are like many of the people we have helped, you have tried many different approaches to taking care of yourself and resistance keeps winning out. This is not your fault! This is a different approach to self care. In this book, you will learn that healing resistance is the key and how Internal Family Systems (IFS) is uniquely designed to do this.

Resistance isn't in the way, it is the way

Learn why parts of you resist doing things, even things that are good for you

  • Learn about the super common inner conflict of parts of you that push and parts of you that resist

  • Discover that parts of us that are resisting, actually have a really good reason why they resist

  • Realize that resisting parts are actually trying to help by protecting you from feeling emotional pain, guilt, or shame

  • Your blocks to self care are your next steps for healing

    Learn what parts inside you may be causing you to feel frustrated or stuck

  • The 5 common ways that parts inside push for change

  • The 10 common ways that parts inside push back against that change

  • ... and how underneath all of these parts is usually some old hurt, or wound that hasn’t been healed yet

  • You can heal the resistance to self care 

    Discover the 3 keys that makes IFS different from other approaches to self care

  • IFS gives you a way to not only look into your inner world but also to heal it

  • Healing begins with realizing that there are no bad parts of us, even parts that resist things that are good for us

  • IFS utilizes timeless wisdom that your true essence is love and applies it in a different way that helps all parts of you

  • Do you want to show up more fully for yourself and others?

    About Us

    Hi, I’m Dr. Steve Chee. 

    I’m an Integrative East-West Medicine Physician. I’m quadruple board certified in Integrative Medicine, Family Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Medical Acupuncture. I’m also a Certified Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapist.

    You are not alone! I too have had challenges stepping forward doing things that I know would fill my soul with joy. For me, I tried learning and studying so many different approaches and modalities, hoping that it would make me feel ready to really pursue my dreams.

    Then I heard about IFS. IFS has not only helped me in stepping forward in pursuing my own dreams, it also completely changed how I help people who are experiencing resistance to self care or to showing up more fully in their lives. 

    I've been using IFS to help my patients see that resistance to self care isn’t in the way, it is the way. IFS has been a game changer for so many of my patients and I hope it can help you too.

    I am Alanna Arthur-Chee

    I have been a Life Coach and Facilitator since 2003. I hold a master's degree in Spiritual Psychology and am also trained in Internal Family Systems (IFS). I have received a certificate in Soul-Centered Professional Coaching, a certificate in Soul-Centered Facilitation, and a master certification in Intuition Medicine®.

    I have spent 30+ years studying with, or the works of, the top teachers in personal growth and development. Coming from a background in psychology and health and wellness, much of my work has focused on helping people live happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives from the inside out. Having extensive experience in the fields of intuition, energy medicine, and mind body medicine, I understand the vital importance of people connecting to their body and inner wisdom, in support of their wellness on all levels. This connection also supports us in aligning more fully with our purpose and finding beautiful ways to express that in the world, which creates a life of joy, meaning and fulfillment.

His Zen-like calmness conveys a message of trust and safety. Then what he does with your history is sheer genius. The frosting on these gifts is his perception beyond what things appear to be. He probes while keeping an open mind and heart until he gets to the heart-of-the-matter, i.e. the emotional genesis of the manifested pain. I have endless gratitude for my experiences with Steve and his gifts. I know you will too. Kind regards" ~ CW
