Amy ReamerLicensed Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT, RPT-S
When going through an adoption and trying to learn and do the best job I could as a mom I became fascinated with the neuroscience of how early trauma impacts the brain and development. I was appalled at the lack of resources for adoption that truly helped in my area. So I went back to school to become a therapist and I’ve only studied developmental trauma, attachment and adoption ever since. Seeking knowledge and training in best practices that truly help families. This is not a kid issue or a parent issue. It’s not about all of the responsibility on the adoptee to “fix” themselves or the parents to “fix” them. We are all doing our very best with what we know and what we have been wired to do. We work on the physiological impact of trauma, self worth and attachment relationships in a hierarchy that heals from the foundation up. I have a masters in marriage and family therapy, I am registered play therapy supervisor and a current PhD student in Infant and Early Childhood Development.
