We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

Healing Adoption Trauma

Precious ones! Confronting adoption trauma and infant grief can feel terrifying and oftentimes immobilizing. Please trust that you can get through this. That you are not alone, even if you feel isolated. That you are deeply loved, even if you don’t believe it right now. You were born into circumstances that equipped you to get through this, and through coaching, education and embodiment/ breathing exercises- you will 💛.

This is a big undertaking, as adoption trauma is something adoptees have been carrying for their entire lifetime without any awareness that it even existed. Feelings of helplessness, despair, anger, fear, resistance, and deep grief will come up. Understanding trauma will dismantle what you thought you knew of yourself, your relationships, and your relationship with yourself in the world.

If you are beginning to understand adoption in this way, you will need support during the process. As someone who has gone through it, and many other traumas, I have the compassion, education, experience and insight to help you navigate this scary time and emerge as someone who knows themselves more deeply. I would be honored to be a part of your healing process.
