Welcome and thanks for stopping by!
Someone once asked me why I didn’t go to a more diverse college or perhaps even a historically black college. Why choose a school and town that pretty much mirrored the school and town I so desperately wanted out of? My response, Black people scared me. And because I wasn’t a fan of being scared, I did my best to avoid them whenever possible. As sad and silly as this sounds, for years it was my truth .

This truth resulted in a long, lonely, and painful journey to a healthy racial identity. While my parents did the best they could with what they knew, like me, they didn’t know much. We had no benefit of history or hindsight, institutional support, books to guide us, or even ways of knowing what we were getting right or wrong. Instead we found ourselves being the clinical trials and day laborers of a grand and complex social experiment known as transracial adoption.

At Transracial Family Coaching we believe that, in addition to belonging to an individual family, transracial adoptees are part of a larger family. As the elders of this family, we believe our first-hand personal and collective experiences as transracial adoptees place us in a unique position to equip transracial families with information, training, guidance, skills, and tools not available elsewhere. We invite you to take a moment and review our Declaration of Beliefs, Services, Biography, Media and Contact Pages. We look forward to partnering with you and your child as you explore and address those critical questions of “Who am I?”, “Who do I want to be?” and “How do others see me?”
