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 your child and you to facilitate age- appropriate conversation about adoption as well as the many other issues and behaviors that may arise as a child matures.
Many children and adolescents engage more willingly with arts (and play) rather than traditional talk therapy alone. As a registered art therapist and licensed counselor, I offer activities that encourage conversation, and strengthen the connection between parent and child which is essential to a child’s emotional health. No prior art experience is necessary.
