March skies ~ Pasadena

A quick note to say hello and let you know what's happening this month. First, I want to share that I am now trained in Brainspotting. What an AMAZING modality this is for working with clients who have suffered trauma. My clients are as excited as I am! If you'd like to know more, feel free to reach out. 

I will be presenting at the California Adoption Conference in Oakland, CA on March 24th. The theme of the conference this year is: Listening to the Stories of Adoption and Foster Care. I will be discussing ways all members of the adoption and foster communities can heal from grief, loss and trauma including EMDR, Brainspotting, mindful awareness, story, and more. 
The CAC Conference is a wonderful opportunity for anyone connected to or by adoption to come together for support and education.  It's also a fantastic opportunity for professionals (therapists, teachers, social workers, counselors) to become more aware of issues related to working with the adoption and foster care population.  


Take a look at my latest article, Adolescence and Adoption: How Adoptive Parents Can Support Teens . Are you an Adoptive Parent who could use some coaching around language, timing of conversations, talking about difficult subjects and so much more? Let's work together!
