Free initial consultation
Our experienced consultant can schedule a one hour, introductory virtual meeting or phone call with you. You'll discuss questions or concerns and assess the types of services and resources that may be beneficial to you or your family.
Need extended consultation?
For those who need extra - but less formal - support, extended consultation is available. Scheduled as a virtual meeting or phone call, one-on-one guidance can be scheduled at your convenience.
- Adoptive parents might use this as additional support during a challenging situation or to learn more about a particular adoption-related issue.
- Birth family members or adult adoptees might access this service to help navigate the social or emotional aspects of search and reunion.
These exchanges are typically 60 minutes and can be purchased individually for $50 per 30 minutes.
Please be aware that consultation calls are not considered clinical counseling and will not be billable through insurance providers. Payment is due at the time of service.
