Building Capacity for Connection in Adoptive and Foster Families
It is because the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob sets the lonely in families (Psalm 68:6), that your child’s relational trauma is best healed within the context of a family relationship.
The family is uniquely qualified to bring the most
help to children from hard places.
Through individual or family coaching, let me build on what you’re already doing well as a family.
Sometimes it takes an outside set of eyes and ears to see these strengths amidst the chaos of the day to day struggles that we all have.
Using your own family strengths, you will increase your competence, commitment, and confidence regarding the specific goals you set. You’ll learn more ways to connect with your children and diffuse situations that have caused issues in the past.
I have over 9 years’ experience working with adoptive families and their children from hard beginnings. My unique professional training coupled with 14 years’ experience as an adoptive parent myself, allows me to provide you with excellent support, creative problem solving, and strategies to build more connection with your family.
I am trained as a TBRI Practitioner; registered Circle of Security Parenting facilitator; and trained in the Alert Program for Self-Regulation. I have a Master degree in Family Life Education.
Your coaching sessions can be in person if you are local to Missoula or if you can travel to Missoula. Remote coaching sessions via Skype or telephone are also available. $75 an hour, scholarships are available.
