Adoption can be a wonderful way to build a family. It can also be challenging. PATH therapists are trained to look at each case, through the lens of Attachment. The clinic staff include four adoptive mothers, and five adoptees.
In addition to our counselors' academic credentials and training, each therapist is trained in Lifespan Integration and EMDR. These protocols build self-empathy and self-compassion, making trauma work easier to do.
Our philosophy is one of helping individuals and families move from coping with life, to living life joyously.
Most of us become parents with high hopes and the best of intentions. Overtime we can realize how our precious children continue to be effected by their early loss and trauma. We watch as our family becomes more and more dysfunctional. In those times, we can feel ineffective, powerless and overwhelmed.
It is our experience that both parent and child are often doing the best they know how. By working with a child on their early loss and/or trauma, and helping parents institute therapeutic parenting, attachment and peace can be achieved in the home.
If you are at the point where you believe that something has to change, finding your way to this site is a great start. It shows your willingness to create change in your life and in your family's life as well. It is our great pleasure and privilege to help adoptive families find their way to connection and peace.
Our therapists work with individuals and families to help alleviate stress by providing therapy, support, coaching and education in a non-judgmental environment.
Our therapists are trained to work with:
