Training for Professionals
As a Korean American adoptee, the multi-layered complexity within the transracial and transcultural adoption community has been both my lived experience and a professional passion. When discussing the adoption triad (birth mother/family, adoptee, and adoptive parents), the mainstream narrative often highlights the gratitude and beauty, yet dismisses the hardships. While there are many joys and gifts in adoption, there are also wounds and burdens that need to be tended to.
I am a firm believer in the healing extension of giving to others, as we have needed ourselves. I offer both my lived experience and therapeutic knowledge in the form of professional trainings, which open conversations and identify ways to support adoptees and adoptive families in the transracial and transcultural adoption community.
