  • "Transforming your greatest source of suffering into your greatest source of meaning"

    Welcome!

    You may worry excessively about life and yourself. You may self-sabotage anytime something good starts to happen. You may be struggling with depression. You may feel abandoned by the ones that are supposed to love you the most. Like the world is conspiring against you. Because of this, you feel hopeless. In your inner voice, the one no one else usually hears, you are very critical of yourself and prone to unhelpful criticisms. You went through something difficult, and you’re not sure if you’ve processed, recovered or healed from it yet. 

    You were adopted or involved in the adoption process and don’t think anyone else understands you. You may be thinking about adoption and want to process and prepare for it. You may be thinking about reunification and what to process and prepare for it.

    Or, you may feel like most areas of your life are going well but you want to tend to your overall mental health as well.

    The Therapeutic Transformation

    Through therapy, you can learn to recognize the worst-case scenario, best-case scenario, and most likely scenario to begin to develop a more balanced perspective. Through these techniques and more, you begin to manage your anxiety.

    You begin to thrive with hope and joy. You feel connected and supported by others.

    You start to have a clear vision of values and the ideal life. You are able to allow thoughts and language that foster good things in life. You come to know and understand yourself better and are optimizing your gifts and abilities.

    You learn about trauma, its impacts, ways to process it and grow from the experiences.

    You are aware of all the benefits and challenges in the adoption process. You feel equipped to optimize the benefits and manage the conflicts. And, all while fostering strengths and resilience.

    “If you fall off your horse, get back on!”

    Adopted Daily is about the mindsets and routines that we “adopt daily” towards reaching our full potential. For instance, the belief that “All things in Life Happen for Your Good and Benefit” could be regularly chosen (adopted daily), even when it doesn’t seem like it because times are hard. Adopted Daily is also about the lifestyle choices we make consistently. Lifestyle activities like sports, exercise, writing, yoga, meditation, reading, eating well and spending quality time with family.

    Explore the mindsets and routines that support you in overcoming life’s challenges and let them be “Adopted Daily.”
