Are you struggling with communication?
Together we can develop boundaries and communication strategies to equip you in navigating post-adoption communication.
Are you in Reunion and Afraid of the Enormous Pressure You Feel To Show Up Perfectly?
So many of the feelings come back when you are in this stage. Stuff you thought you worked past, and suddenly, you are that vulnerable version of yourself again. We can do this big beautiful work together.
Are you afraid you will never find a partner who can accept and support your adoption experience?
Together we are going to learn the powerful actions that will move you from feeling guilty and unworthy to finally feeling acceptance and peace.
Afraid you will wake up and hurt this much every day and nothing will ever really get any better?
Together we can reframe and redefine your adoption story and remove the blocks that keep you from moving forward in your life.
