Finding therapists that specialize in the field of attachment can be challenging. I have over 15 years experience in the field of adoption. During this time, I have worked with countless children with RAD as well as many others with a wide range of attachment issues. Many adopted children struggle in this area. You are not alone! There is great support geared to help parents during the process of parenting children with attachment issues.

Counsling that consists of the parent and child together is essential when working with children with attachment issues. This is drastically different then traditional therapy. In traditional therapy, the counselor works to develop a trusting relationship with the client. In attachment therapy, the therapist helps to build and support a relationship between the parent and child. Continued communication with the parents is essential in the treatment process.

I periodically offer support groups and classes that discuss this topic in more depth. Please consider joining an upcoming class.
