Adoption and Adults


Are you are looking for a therapist who understands your journey with adoption? Or perhaps a therapist who can guide you as your begin to uncover thoughts and feelings you've previously pushed aside?


I'm not adopted.  I don't have adopted children, and I haven't placed a child for adoption.  For some clients, I'm not close enough to adoption.  If you'd like a therapist who has lived adoption, please email me!  I can direct you to a few great therapists in Austin who have lived adoption.  For other clients, the distance I bring from adoption is just what they need.  

The space between your heart and mine is the space we'll fill with time.  ~DMB

My experience and understanding of the impact of adoption on adults has been significantly impacted by my work with Adoption Knowledge Affiliates in Austin, TX.  A member since 2007, I've served on the Board of Directors for four years (including two as president), the Education Committee Chair for two years, and the Conference Committe Chair for five years.  I've had the great honor of working with adults adopted as children as well as families who have lost children to adoption.
