I help adoptive families parent from the heart, not the hurt.

Adoption Coaching Programs 2018-08-13T17:29:20+00:00

Adoption coaching is for you if you want to become the best parent you can be.

Whether you are awaiting a match, or you already have an established family, adoption coaching is your next step. With the guidance of an experienced life coach (who is also an adoptee), I will teach you how to manage your journey as an adoptive parent with the tools you need to succeed.


 You have what it takes to be an amazing adoptive parent…and you are probably doing a lot better than you think!

When does it make sense to finally get an adoption coach?

If you’re considering hiring an adoption coach then it probably makes sense to do it, assuming you’ve got the right coach and you’re clear on what you want to accomplish.

Consider this: If you have already educated yourself on the needs and concerns of your adopted child, maybe even studied personal development – you are light years ahead of other adoptive parents who are really only thinking about the future joy of their new child.

My promise to you is this: I will teach you what you need to do to be a great adoptive parent and offer a plan to make things happen. 

The key components in raising children who value themselves.



Wherever you are in your adoption journey, there is a program designed for you.

Pre-adoptive coaching is before you’ve adopted a child.

A few of the fundamental skills I teach everyone includes:

  • How to maintain inner control when it feels like everything is out of control.
  • Gain the confidence to feel prepared enough, and know you’re ready to parent.
  • Navigating the uncertainties and feel at peace moving forward.
  • Discover your strengths so you can lead your child into the future successfully.



You’ve adopted a child, perhaps it’s been 6 months or a year, and some challenges are starting to present themselves.

Working with me as your coach will clear your mind and transform your whole life. Often we will address the following topics:

  • How to reconcile the fear that your child will never really feel like your child.
  • Find balance around your concerns of the birth mother taking back her child or interfering with your family.
  • Gain confidence to know you’re both prepared and ready to parent.
  • Learn to create a deep, meaningful bond with your child that ensures they feel safe, loved and connected.

 You have already established your family through adoption and some issues are presenting that you did not prepare for. When you work with me, together we will unravel your unique situation, create harmony and create solutions. Some possible and common issues we will work through include:

  • Wondering if behaviors are adoption related or developmental.
  • Feeling rejected by your child –  as if nothing you do is ever good enough.
  • Fearing the long-term effect of adoption on your child.
  • Create boundaries for your child and your family so you can maintain balance and harmony within the whole family.

Each of these programs takes place over 6 months. They are in-depth, tailored to your needs and transformational to your life. I guide parents through creating the necessary foundations for loving and secure relationships with their adopted kids.

In my work with you, I will teach you the 3 most critical steps in adoptive parenting: Healthy Communication, Meaningful Attachment, & Trust. 

 This is YOUR safe space to get one-on-one support and find the solutions you are looking for!

This 6-month coaching program includes the same incredibly effective skills that I as an adoptee used to overcome my past wounds. I then transformed these skills into a coaching modality that I have used to now help hundreds of others give new meaning to their lives. They will give you the reassurance and peace of mind you need to move forward with confidence.


Adoption coaching with me is about helping you evolve as parents. To bring your essence to the surface and be the person, parent, you were meant to be

Adoption coaching will allow you to liberate yourself from your past and let go of what doesn’t work while learning what does. So you can raise your kids with unwavering confidence, resilience and create a happy, healthy home environment. 


  Everyone is different and every situation is unique. When you find your strengths and understand the mental programs that keep you stuck in old-thinking, you can transform your life by creating an intentional plan to bring about intensive healing, clarity and inner security.  From this place you grow into the most positive, loving adopted parent that you can be.

You see, the hard truth is that parenting an adopted child in a healthy way is actually not about the child at all. It’s about YOU.

Nancy Newton Verrier who wrote the highly acclaimed book The Primal Wound, for understanding the adopted child said:

 Dan Siegel who wrote ‘The Whole-Brain Child’ said …


There is a great deal more to preparing for an adopted child than fixing up a nursery or having money in the bank for a college education. There is a real need for emotional stability, honesty, and the willingness to become truly informed about what this process means for the adopting parents and for their child. 

“As parents become more aware and emotionally healthy, their children reap the rewards and move toward health as well. That means that integrating and cultivating your own brain is one of the most loving and generous gifts you can give your children.” 

If raising a happy healthy whole adopted child, and family is a priority for you, your next step is to connect with me and have a conversation about working together. I look forward to seeing if we’re a match!
