INDIVIDUAL SERVICES

Adoption is complex, and you deserve to work with a professional who can help you understand and support the adoptee in your life to the best of your ability. I have a literal lifetime of experience with adoption – as an international and transracial adoptee from India, adoptive parent to a son from Ethiopia, & professional who has worked in the adoption community since 2002.

I offer a range of services for prospective adoptive parents, current adoptive parents & family members of adoptees:

  • Adoption Advice Consultations (phone/virtual- 50 min – $95) – for pre/adoptive caregivers or family members in any U.S. location seeking one-time or occasional consultation for educational support and resources
  • Pre-Adoption Evaluations (in-person/virtual- length and fees vary depending upon requirements) – psychological testing & interviews as required by agencies/countries to receive approval to adopt a child (only available in certain states, see list below)
  • Counseling (in-person/virtual- 50 min-$160 or 25 min-$80) ongoing support for pre/adoptive caregivers or family members (only available in certain states, see list below)
