I aim to grow your knowledge, power, and resolve against the problems you experience. We examine things like patterns
of thinking and behavior, and how they affect your interaction with the world around you.
We focus on specific problems,
and work together on learning
techniques tailored to those unique needs. Healthier coping
methods or avoiding problem areas can help with addiction or stress management.
Considered an adoption competent therapist, and expert on adoption loss and search, I have presented at state and national genealogy associations, and train mental health professionals in state and county social services.
I offer expert consultation services to birth or first parents,
adoptive parents, grandparents,
adopted persons who have
concerns about how adoption
touched them, and anyone coping with genetic DNA issues.
The Adoption Mystique
exposes, documents and confronts the effects of negative social stigma on adoption institutions, practices, adopted persons, as well as adoptive and birthparents.
