If you are an adoptee or member of the adoption constellation (parent, sibling, grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, friend), you have come to the right place! Searching for a competent and compassionate therapist who understands the complexity of adoption can feel like a daunting task, and my goal is to make this process as easy as possible for you. Check out my website for a variety of at-home resources and learn more about the services I offer from my perspective as an adoptee, adoptive parent, and psychologist – if I don’t happen to provide services in your area, visit my resource page to find an adoptee-therapist or adoption-informed therapist practicing near you.
I am a licensed psychologist, international/transracial adoptee of color, and an adoptive parent. I specialize in providing mental health support focused on adoption, trauma, and racial identity work. I am a frequent speaker and trainer at adoption agencies, camps, and conferences throughout the U.S., and the creator of the National Adoptee-Therapist Directory. I authored “The Adoptee Self-Reflection Journal,” “The Adoptive Parent Self-Reflection Journal,” and “EMPOWReD! Ways to Respond to Adoption Questions.”
