We offer individual and family counseling to address post-adoption concerns and issues for any member of the adoption triad. Whether you need guidance on talking to your child about his/her adoption story, or you are trying to navigate ongoing contact with your child's birth family we are here to help!
We can also provide assistance with managing undesired behaviors or ensuring your family is developing a healthy and secure attachment to one another.
