We nurture children, teens, adults and their families by providing adoption-competent counseling services.
We inspire those touched by adoption to become better educated about how to address adoption-related issues.
We empower mental health professionals with the training they need to address the unique challenges inherent in adoption.
Adoptive Parent Education and Support Group with Liz Clark:
We are adoptive parents who have lived and are living shared experiences with you; and, we are also seasoned and expert trauma and attachment therapists passionate about supporting other adoptive families in finding peace, harmony and deep compassion for one another.
Our healing parent support group is a dynamic combination of education, storytelling, deep listening, being heard, believed, seen and held by other parents who ‘get you’.
You are not alone.
We know that adoptive families have unique needs, that traditional parenting is often less than effective and that our children experience life, love, family and relationship through a different lens than others.
We know that adoptive parents can feel confused, scared, sad, mad and glad within the scope of but a moment.
This healing group provides both trauma and attachment education, parenting support and strategies, a place of refuge and respite for parents and ultimately a soft place to land when you are ready to exhale.
This is a series of 4 sessions that begins the first Wednesday of each month and runs for 4 weeks:
Each Wed morning; 9-10:30 am MT, and is held by Zoom or
Each Wed evening; 5:30-7:00 pm MT, and is held by Zoom
Note: This is a series of 4 sessions, that will be offered and completed in one calendar month, and that build on each other. Due to the intimate details, sacred connections and conversations that unfold within our groups, you are invited to choose and remain in, either the morning or evening group. These sessions are NOT recorded due to the confidential nature.
Families formed through adoption face unique challenges. It is not always obvious that an issue you may be experiencing yourself or with your child may or may not be related to adoption. That’s where we come in. Our highly trained adoption-competent therapists work with birth, foster and adoptive families. We are highly trauma informed and practicing and offer mindfully based practices toward self and co-regulation.
Not only are we counselors, we are also adoptive parents. We have walked this journey and are now committed to walking it with others who may be in need of safe support.
We provide adoptive parent support groups, adopted teens support group, individual, couple and family counseling in our Denver, Colorado office, in your home, and by phone globally.
We serve state, county and local departments of Human Services, the private sector and those who self-refer.
