Adoption Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor, CO

Foundations Counseling knows every adoption story is different. Whether you were adopted, you are considering adopting, you have adopted, or your family has adopted, you will have your own story. The counselors at Foundations Counseling are experienced in providing services to meet your needs wherever you are in your journey of adoption.

Adoption can be a voyage through complicated emotions and entangled feelings, but it is also a journey of joy and hope. Growth and development continue throughout the life span, and it is never too late for you or your child to reach their full potential.

Pre-Adoption Counseling

Those who choose to parent an adopted child need an understanding of the issues faced by the child as well as their own support. Foundations Counseling will offer both. Your own history greatly impacts your parenting. If you have been impacted by infertility, it is important to work through the effects this has had on you, your marriage, and your family. Whether or not infertility has been a part of the decision making process to adopt, it is necessary to discover how to work through your own issues of abandonment and loss. Pre-adoption counseling will enable you to better help your adoptive children work through their own feelings. Understanding your expectations of adoption will better aid you in the process of adoption and prepare you for when you are raising an adopted child.

Counseling During Adoption

As you move forward in the adoption process, Foundations Counseling will offer you a safe haven to process the life transition as you prepare for home visits or homeland tours. Through adoption counseling, you will have the opportunity to explore your expectations, anxieties, joys, and sorrows as you navigate the adoption journey.

Keaton has been great! I feel real value with his counseling and guidance. I am disappointed that our Flex card will not work at your office especially since you do not take insurance.

My counselor was awesome! I can directly credit her for the improvement of my life. Her direction was always non-judgmental but also guiding and let you come to your own conclusions. The building it is in has an awesome tree and live plants growing in it which I appreciated. The chocolate while waiting was also a plus.
