Helping Adoptees, Birth Parents, & Those Who Love Them
If you have lived with lifelong pain or confused feelings related to adoption, it is finally time to leave the land of adoption loss & enter a new place of peace, clarity, & self-acceptance.
Is This You?
An Adoptive Parent
A Birth Parent
Are you a birth parent who placed a child, and you’re stunned at how much you still hurt? Do you need adoption help to find your new normal and envision a future that is meaningful to you?
You could be an adult adoptee with a lot of sadness, or have questions that never seem to be answered. You may often feel that having some answers would enable you to be happier and to move on.
Are you an adoptive parent with concerns about what things that are happening are, or are not, related to adoption issues?
Are you the parent of a teen or young adult adoptee who has floundered, doesn’t seem to be able to focus, or to settle into productive life choices, choose an educational goal, find or keep a decent job? This could have something to do with adoption loss/abandonment issues, and adoption help may be what you need.
All Things Adoption
Finally….You have found someone for adoption help who understands all things adoption. I know you aren’t a dysfunctional person, or a bad parent, just because some hard adoption issues and questions have affected your life, or the lives of a family member. If you were adopted, I understand how it might feel to have pieces of you missing that you long to know.
My coaching work focuses on helping people who live with loss, trauma and tough life changes. I get great satisfaction from helping those in the Adoption Triad who have been most affected by loss and grief.
This means Teen and Adult Adoptees, Birth Parents, and also Adoptive Parents.
I help adoptees with overt, or repressed grief, longing, confusion, intense curiosity, or even anger, all of which may have interfered in some way with living your best life.
I help you grow into accepting who you are, learning to love yourself more, finding greater peace and a clearer understanding of how adoption has had an impact on your life, even if you grew up in the most wonderful and loving adoptive home. Many people don’t see how their questions and early abandonment issues have had an influence on their choices and actions their whole lives.
I help you to truly understand your loss,to create goals that reflect your needs and hopes, and to prepare emotionally to search for your roots, if that is your desire. I also help you come to terms with what you may find in the process of your search.
I help birth parents, who have either placed a child or children in the past, or more recently. Often birth parents who have received counseling as part of the placement process, may continue to feel stuck in grief and misery. If you are a birth parent who feels this way, I will help you figure out how to create a new normal, and to go on to be joyful and productive again. I will help you transform your suffering into new satisfaction with yourself, and to figure out what is next in your life.
Are You A Birth Parent Who Placed A Child A Very Long Time Ago?
I also help older birth parents learn to understand how to deal with adult children who were placed for adoption a very long time ago, when those adult children try to connect. For some older birth parents, this can be anxiety-producing. Older birth parents in particular, may feel angry, and may not get why their past has to be exposed to the people who are in their lives now. If you are wondering about the changes reuniting with your child after all this time might bring to your life, I will help you sort it out and face it more comfortably with expert adoption help.
