Colleague Consultation

Are you a therapist seeking case consultation, resources, or advice about an adoptee or adoptive family on your caseload?

Are you a psychologist seeking training on how to conduct prospective adoptive parent psychological evaluations?

You’ve come to the right place! 

I am a licensed psychologist specializing in adoption, trauma, and racial identity development, and I have a literal lifetime of experience with adoption – as an international and transracial adoptee from India, adoptive parent to a child from Ethiopia, and professional who has worked in the adoption community since 2002.

I offer single and ongoing consultation services for colleagues based in the U.S. Colleague consultations are $115 per 50-minute session, and can be facilitated by phone or video. If you’re ready to build your knowledge and expertise working within the adoption community, visit the Contact Us page to schedule your consultation!
