Over the years, I have worked with many adopted adults, all with different stories. Without exception, I’ve found there has been healing to do around the moment of birth, which is about our connection to the Earth and our bodies, and the moment of separation from the birth mother. These moments hold a significant amount of unprocessed grief and other deep feelings, no matter the circumstances.
It really has been a privilege to explore this moment with clients. To unpack the felt, embodied emotions and sensations. To bring our current adult selves into the scene for strength and support.
This is the work I absolutely love. It is the deep healing, transformative work I have been doing with MY therapists for many years. It brings relief, resolution, integration and often understanding, in a felt, embodied way that shifts relationships and changes lives.
