Areas of Expertise

Our therapists have intimate experience and knowledge with adoption. We have two adoptive mothers, an adult adoptee and a therapist who was the director of an adoption agency for ten years.

Adoption Specific Training

In addition to our counselors' academic credentials and training, each therapist affiliated with ACES, has earned a one year post-graduate certificate in Therapy with Adoptive Families.

Cutting Edge Protocols

Our belief is that Attachment & Trauma should be treated together.  Where there are problems with one, there is often trouble with the other.  ACES therapists use right-brained therapy protocols that work. See specific providers to see what they offer.

Our goal is that our clients are not only able to resolve past trauma, but they are able to develop the capacity for long-term intimate loving relationships.
