RE: Support Group for Parents of adopted boy with attachment issues

My daughter is currently in a great adoption support group with Virginia Keeler-Wolf, who specializes in adoption and attachment. I asked Virginia your question, and while she doesn't currently have a support group for boys, she says that she knows of a group in the South Bay and has other resources for you. Also, maybe if you connect with her, you can help her start a new group as well. Information on her practice is at www.attachmentadoption.net. and contact info at http://www.attachmentadoption.net/contact.html adoptive parent too

RE: Need therapist who knows adoption issues

Virginia Keeler-Wolf in Oakland specializes in adoption. Here is her website: http://www.attachmentadoption.net/clinicalstaff_virginia.html Of all the people with whom we conferred, she offered the most coherent diagnosis and targeted support. The primary focus is to address what is now called Reactive Attachment Disorder. Her skills and knowledge are deep and wide. I only wish we had located her sooner since late diagnosis of this fairly common problem with adopted children hampers the best outcome. adoptive mom

RE: Adopted daughter's grief about her original family

I know of a wonderful group in Oakland that deals with adoption issues; their website is http://www.attachmentadoption.net/index.html. My kids see Laura Soble and Stacy Ouetten, who are both terrific (fyi, my kids are not adopted, but many kids in their practice are). Ann

Re: Family Therapist w/ some experience w/ adoption issues
My family can recommend Virginia Keeler-Wolf. We've gotten very constructive feedback and strategies for our children who were adopted. Her contact info: 1425 Leimert Blvd. Suite #302, Oakland, 510-339-9363. Not all therapists are able or qualified to handle adoption related issues so I'll be checking the other responses with interest. Taxed to the max Mom

Re: Therapist for Child with Reactive Attachment Disorder (Feb. 2003)
I suggest you check out Virginia Keeler-Wolf in Berkeley. Although we have just begun working with her, she was highly recommended. She says her practice is about 75% adoption-related, and she is active in PACER, and is presenting at an upcoming PACT workshop.


Re: Therapist for Child with Reactive Attachment Disorder (Feb. 2003)
I found the ''only'' two therapists in the Bay Area who are truly specialized in RAD. I would recommend calling them too. They are Virginia Keeler Wolf at 510-339-9363 and Susan Love.


Re: Therapist for Child with Reactive Attachment Disorder (Feb. 2003)
I cannot speak to her expertise as an Adoption Therapist, but as a representative of her other 25% I can speak very highly about Virginia Keeler-Wolf. She is a very caring, warm, thoughtful and thought provoking therapist. She uses innovative approaches and thinks outside of the box. I had been very badly stuck and she got me unstuck and I'm much happier too. She is very good at helping to solve or work through a particular problem. I also like the fact that I can set the pace that I feel comfortable with. I highly recommend her. Plus she has the greatest toys! Anonymous
