What Does Being Adopted Mean To You?
The experience of being adopted can be ongoing or hit like a ton of bricks. Either way, it’s often linked with other life stresses
and transitions in life and relationships. For nearly 20 years, I’ve been passionate about helping individuals and families change
their lives. I offer psychotherapy and consultations for adoptees and families through the life cycle. Families come from
throughout Massachusetts and beyond, including Boston, Newton, Brookline and Cape Cod. I also do consultations and
workshops at adoption agencies and schools. My life as a Korean-Adoptee enriches and informs my work. Along with
overarching themes, it’s the details that make each family unique. If you’re a school interested in having me as a speaker or
consultant, please get in touch!
