Parenting is challenging no matter how your family was created. Adoption adds a layer of questions and/or may present specific developmental challenges. As an adoption-experienced therapist, I can work with you if you are considering adoption as a family building option, or to provide parenting support. I can assist you in facilitating age- appropriate conversation about adoption as well as the many other issues and behaviors that may arise as a child develops.
Although I don’t work with children in my practice, many children and adolescents engage more willingly with arts (and play) rather than traditional talk therapy alone. I can recommend child specific art therapists. No prior art experience is necessary.
