Child Welfare Case Consultations

For those who need assistance navigating the complex child welfare system, I offer consultations based on my 28 years of experience in this field. I can also assist agencies who may need assistance with new agency implementation or case reviews.

Adoption Home Studies

Home studies are required for every adoption, whether international or domestic, private or foster care, infant or older child. This study is a basic overview of your life - including criminal background checks, your finances and even your personal relationships. It is used by the courts to assess if a stable environment exists for a family to receive a placement.

I am a Florida Certified Child Welfare Professional licensed to do home studies.

Adoptive Parent Training

I offer training for adoptive parents in the process of adopting, as well as after placement.
