Post-Adoption Program

Our adoptee staff provide therapy, coaching, consultations, and group services to adopted, fostered, and donor conceived youth and adults and their families.

Therapy

Psychotherapy is the use of treatment modalities to transform thoughts, feelings, and/or behavior that cause a person distress or interfere with their functioning, relationships, or personal growth. Many folks choose therapy, in addition to self-help or support from loved ones, to reach their goals more quickly and with less emotional suffering.

 

Our therapy services for youth, adults, and families connected to adoption, foster care, and donor conception are provided by adopted and formerly fostered adult staff. We help our clients work through issues related to relationships, grief, loss, adoptive identity, transracial identity, and trauma.

Coaching

Parent coaching is an empowering service that creates a non-clinical relationship between a coach and a child's parents. Through this empowering relationship, parents can gain skills, confidence, developmentally-sound wisdom, motivation, encouragement, and guidance in their parenting approach with their children.

Our coaching services for youth, adults, and families connected to adoption, foster care, and donor conception are provided by adopted and formerly fostered adult staff. We help birth/first, foster, and adoptive parents develop nurturing, accepting, and affirming responses to their children who are navigating issues of trauma, race, identity, grief, and open adoption.

Consultation

Professional consulting is a advisory service that helps groups, communities, schools, businesses, professionals, and other public settings create competent serves, approaches and belonging spaces for youth, adults, and families connected to adoption, foster care, and donor conception communities.

Our consultation services for professionals, organizations, and businesses seeking to be adoption competent are provided by adopted and formerly fostered adult staff. We use research, our own experiences, and our access to the adoption, foster care, and DC communities to help our clients improve their interface with these communities.

Teen Groups

Our adopted and formerly fostered staff hold regular groups for teens and tweens who need care and support through their experiences navigating life as adopted, fostered, or donor conceived people.

Currently, we are developing and launching support groups for adopted teens and tweens, starting January 2023. If you are an adopted youth, or a parent/guardian of an adopted youth, please fill out our interest form. 

We already think the world of you.
