If you’re an adoptive parent looking for hope, practical tools, and friends who understand, this podcast is for you!
Between the two of us, we represent all three parts of the adoption triad. We’ve been around the block a couple times with kids by birth, adoption, and foster care. And lived to tell about it.
Don’t worry. We get it. And we’re here for you. Gain confidence in your parenting and hope for your family’s future. If you’re heard the acronym EMDR and wondered what it’s all about, you’re going to love this episode. Lisa interviewed Laura Taylor who is an EMDRIA Certified Therapist. We talk about what EMDR is, how it works, and who it can help. Laura finds EMDR therapy to be very helpful for clients with attachment wounds as well as many other types of traumatic issues and distressing life experiences.
