I have experience working with adoptive families and all of the unique dynamics that accompany building a family through adoption .
Therapy is a space where rather than ask "What is wrong with you?" we can answer the question "What happened to you?" The impact of trauma, relationship disruptions, and the general disappointments of life impact us and we all develop coping skills to deal with them in the moment. The journey of healing, self discovery, and self awareness means exploring what coping skills are still beneficial, and which ones might no longer serve their purpose. Together, we can tackle the goals you’ve identified to help make life more meaningful, richer, joyful, and peaceful.

I'm experienced in issues relating to work, stress, anger, anxiety, relationships, sexuality, trauma, foster care and adoption .
Insight and relief come from talking with someone who can help you understand your current feelings in the context of your whole life - someone who will listen without judgment, validate painful feelings, and push the boundary of what may seem possible. Through the process of psychotherapy, I hope to help you gain insight and perspective into your relationships and behaviors with the intention of feeling better and achieving positive change. I believe that trust, respect, non-judgment, genuineness, and compassion form the foundation of a safe therapeutic relationship.

Hello future client! Choosing a therapist can be challenging and daunting. It doesn't have to be. Choose a therapist you will develop a therapeutic relationship with, that's #1. Also choose a therapist that has passion to help you figure out your stuff, issues or stuck spots. Well look no further, you found her ME! My name is Odetta Moore. My journey began when I was 8 years old when my alcoholic cousin committed suicide. That day I said to my mom "I know there is help out there for someone like him, when I grow up I will find it." Give me the chance to help you as we develop a therapeutic relationship to your transformed life.

** No openings at this time. Waitlist option available at www.lilyfield.org/counseling ** I believe that we are shaped, but not defined by our experiences, and that having a safe and supportive place to process those experiences can be healing. Humans are built for connection, and my goal is to help clients reach a place where they feel connected to their authentic selves and are able to connect with those who are important to them. I seek to empower my clients by helping them make sense of their history, imagine what a hopeful future might look like, and realize the great resources they already have access to within themselves.

No one has the perfect childhood, and even if you come from a family that is intact and loving, life presents crises and challenges when you least expect them. It may be the loss of a loved one, difficulty forming or maintaining relationships, frustrations around a job or reaching a life goal. I believe our perceptions and feelings about the past can change, no matter how disturbing, and once we do that, we can find more joy in the present and face the future with a more positive attitude. People can grow and change at any age.

Parenting is the most important job there is but where do we get training? Most of our training is OJT or from our parents but what if our training isn't "good enough?" Have you ever struggled with parenting and wished that you had a safe place to recharge, regroup, and express your frustrations? As a parent I can relate and as a Therapist I am here to help you. Being a kid is difficult. It's frustrating to communicate when your brain doesn't have the words to express what you want to say. Parents use words to communicate but children communicate through play.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
