Therapy for individuals and families touched by adoption

Are you an adoptee, birth parent, or adoptive/foster parent? Adoption is often full of joy. At the same time, it can present unique challenges for adoptees and parents, including:

  • Identity issues
  • Loss and grief
  • Developmental, emotional, or behavioral concerns
  • Attachment and relationship challenges
  • Trauma history
  • Understanding and processing your/your child’s adoption story
  • For international and transracial adoptees and their families, there may also be cross-cultural challenges

Individual or family therapy with a skilled therapist specially trained in these issues can be an invaluable tool in addressing adoption-related concerns. In addition to my general practice, I have a special interest and extensive training and experience in working with individuals and families touched by adoption, including:

  • Current or prospective adoptive and foster parents
  • Adopted tweens and teens
  • Adult adoptees
  • Adoptive families
  • Kinship families
  • Birth parents
