Foster Care & Adoption

Foster care and adoption is a unique journey that many find themselves alone in facing. Feelings of hopelessness, stress and anxiety due to CFTs’, reunification trials, severance trails, meetings with case managers and social workers can all contribute to overwhelming sensations. Because many families are facing these uncertainties alone, therapy can be a very useful tool in overcoming these challenges with a professional who understands the complexities of foster care and adoption. Building bridges between biological families whilst maintaining your child’s trust can feel messy and complicated, not to mention the common experience of families just not knowing how to feel throughout this process. In addition, many individuals report feelings of depression and anxiety even post-placement and after adoptions are finalized. It is important to receive validation and support during this unique time. You are supplying your family with so many of your emotional resources. It is important to have yours cared for as well.
