Beliefs about adoption and your philosophy of practice with adoptees and/or families, including your theoretical orientation:  I approach adoption cases from a multicultural, ecosystemic framework that is informed by empirically-validated attachment interventions. I have done research and taught on attachment theory and integrate the attachment literature into every session.

List the trainings you have conducted or participated in related to adoption, trauma, and/or attachment during the last 5 years:  In area therapist training programs, I have been a regular guest-lecturer on the role of attachment theory in clinical supervision. I have been trained in Trauma-Focused CBT, an empirically-validated trauma treatment for children and use the modality regularly. My doctoral research was on attachment, and I consider myself an expert on the issue.
