Adoption Competent Therapy

What is an Adoption-Competent Therapist?

Families and individuals who have experienced adoption have unique needs and encounters related to their adoption journey. Adoptive families may experience challenges at different developmental stages that can be effectively navigated through the guidance of a therapist trained and experienced in adoption. Clients who have experienced adoption may have specific issues related to grief, attachment or trauma that an adoption competent therapist can effectively treat.

As an adoption competent therapist, I work to promote healthy family relationships while understanding the impact adoption has on the child, parents, birth parents and the entire family system. Therapeutic focus may include addressing loss, attachment, trauma, brain development, social and emotional development and the impact these areas have on the entire family system.
