Parenting is hard work, period. It can be even more difficult for adoptive families, where confusion and concern often come with the unique joys and challenges of raising an adopted child.
I specialize in working with parents, families and children ages 4-18 – especially in adoptive families.
Are you concerned about your child’s “problem” behaviors? Are you not sure if they’re typical or somehow related to the unique challenges faced by an adopted child?
If you’re seeing the following in your child, therapy might help:
- Increasing anger
- Shutting down when upset
- Lashing out at others
- Sudden changes in mood, behavior, grades, friends, interests, staying in their room, etc.
I can help you understand and connect with your child. Together we can collaborate on responding to your child more effectively and figure out ways to decrease any doubts, fears or worries that either of you might have.
