We’re here to help when things get difficult.

Our team of licensed therapists understand adoption because it is the core of our counseling program. We offer counseling to individuals and families experiencing adoption-related challenges, including anxiety, attachment disorders, grief and loss, depression, parenting challenges, emotion regulation and stress. Our team uses a holistic and personalized approach while working with you.

We are also offering virtual therapy! This is a challenging time for all of us. Our goal is to make it as convenient as possible for you to get in touch with our therapists online so you can receive the well-being services you need safely and and securely.
