Announcement icon This is an unsettling time for everyone right now. I'm accepting new clients for video/phone sessions. Please contact me if you need support
If you or your child are dealing with anxiety, stress, relationship issues, school problems, life transitions, adoption or attachment related issues, impacts of trauma, or depression, I'm listening. There is hope and a way forward. I offer a safe, supportive space to deepen self-awareness, build empowerment, and identify and alleviate sources of distress or pain to create positive, lasting change. I welcome and work with clients from all backgrounds and enjoy working with students, adults, creative types, and people of color. I also specialize in working with adoptees and their families as I am personally connected to adoption.
As a transracial, transnational adoptee, I bring my lived experience as well as extensive clinical training to my work. I understand on a visceral level what it is to feel a sense of belonging and isolation simultaneously. I believe that in building tolerance for holding and honoring conflicting feelings, one can move towards self-compassion and healing.
It takes a lot of courage, strength, and determination to begin therapy. I am here to walk alongside you on this journey, provide validation, empathy, and support, and help you visualize a path through the messiness and realness of life. If any of this resonates with you, or you are curious about how we would work together, please reach out and let's talk.

Ciara McLaughlin's Groups

Transracial Tween Therapy Group

Have you ever wondered -- Who am I? What am I? Where do I come from? What is my story? If you have ever wondered about these things, you are not alone. Join transracial adoptee therapists Ciara McLaughlin & Jessica Kim Gruber for a 6 session, bimonthly group to explore issues of identity (racial & cultural), relationships (friends & family), and all the complex feelings of adoption with others who "get it." Our hope and our goal is to help participants feel more grounded in their sense of identity, connected in their relationships and in their communities, and empowered to use their voices.

More about this group

Transracial Young Adult Therapy Group

As young adults, transracial young adult adoptees have a unique perspective, fresh from adolescence and on the verge of full adulthood. What comes up for each of us during this transitional time is different and distinct, yet we may encounter similar challenges, themes, experiences, or feelings. Transracial adoptee therapists Ciara McLaughlin and Jessica Kim Gruber invite young adult adoptees to join this group to share their stories with others who have "been there and felt that" and participate in discussions around the issues that inform our identities, well-being, and relationships with others.
