I think we can all benefit from a little Loving Kindness right now.
I am sending this to all of you.
AKA Conference in Austin, Texas
In November, I'm heading back to one of my absolute favorite cities to present at the Adoption Knowledge Affiliates Conference. The theme this year is What Adoption Can Teach the World. AKA in Austin does such important work. This year I'll be presenting with my dear friend and colleague, Leslie Pate MacKinnon (We met several years ago at this very conference!) We'll be talking about How to Heal Adoption Trauma and Live YOUR Authentic Life. I'll be doing a live demonstration of Brainspotting too!
Please join me if you're in the area!
Online groups for the ADOPTION COMMUNITY
Support and a sense of community are SO important. I have been asked by many people: "When are you starting a group for adult adoptees?" I've also been contacted by adoptive parents seeking support: "We would love to be a part of a group who understands what we are experiencing."
Groups will begin in January! There has been so many people who want to take part, I've added a second group for adult adoptees. I'm so excited for us to connect and work together!
Contact me directly for more information.
