Jennifer Surratt, LCSW
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
At C2Adopt - we have a a variety of therapists who are adoption competent and trauma informed. We work with folks of all ages whose lives have been impacted by foster care, kinship caregiving, adoption and third party reproduction.
I have worked in child welfare for over decades and have extensive post graduate training and expertise in the areas of attachment, trauma and adoption issues. I have been trained in EMDR, Theraplay and Family Attachment Narrative Therapy. I have completed TAC (training for adoption training) and am an adoption competent therapists. I work with youth and their families and adult adoptees. My areas of expertise are also helpful for folks who have been impacted by foster or kinship care or third party reproduction. As a queer therapist, I also enjoy working with LGBTQIA+ clients.
I believe that we are all doing the best we can with what tools and skills we have at a given moment. Sometimes we find that we come to a new place in life where our tools aren't enough or effective any longer and therapy can offer support towards increased self-understanding, skill building and ultimately our healing. I believe that nothing is set and that there is always hope for healing for us, our children and our families.
