Adriana Chaves – Post Adoption Wellness Therapist
We are thrilled to announce our very own Adriana Chaves’ acceptance of the position of Post-Adoption Wellness Therapist here at MAA!! Adriana Chaves, MA, graduated as a Psychologist in Colombia and has over 20 years of experience in the field of adoption and foster care. She initiated her career doing private practice and soon became the Psychology Coordinator of FANA, a private institution well known in Colombia for its professional approach to adoption and the care of children. During her 20 years in that institution, she managed to create the Psychology Department, as well as supporting hundreds of families and children to reach their family dreams. She studied psychology and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Psychological Evaluation of Children and a Master’s in Clinical and Family Psychology. In her new role, Adriana will work closely with families newly home, as well as families needing additional post-adoption supports. She also co-leads MAA’s post-adoption family and children support groups. And as if that wasn’t enough, Adriana will continue to play an active role in our Colombia hosting programs. We are so excited for this new role and know that it will benefit so many families and children! Thank you, Adriana!
