Brainspotting with Children Adolescents

Meggin Nam Holtz, LMSW

Nam received her MSW from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College with a focus on child and adolescent trauma in the clinical setting. She provides therapy to youth, adolescents, families, and adults utilizing a strengths-based, trauma-informed, attachment, culturally and racially sensitive, and adoption-informed lens. As a transracial adoptee, she has a personal connection with adoption, and enjoy working with adoptees. She also holds a BFA in dance from SUNY Purchase and enjoys bringing creativity into the therapeutic space.

Nam created the award-winning documentary and youth-friendly film about birth search, adoption, country of origin travel, and identity which is currently available for private screenings for individuals and groups. For more information visit:

Nam has been involved in adoptee advocacy for 10 years. She is a supporter of policy changes such as Citizenship for all Adoptees, and original birth certificate rights, to name a few. She advocates for adoption-informed education on an international level.


Adoption Therapy Webinars

Every therapist truly desires to be competent and helpful for all of their clients. Unfortunately, most clinicians were never provided even a basic introduction to adoption, let alone an explanation or analysis of the complexities adoption entails. Sixty-five percent of clinical psychologists surveyed were unable to recall any courses addressing adoption in graduate school, which is better than the eighty-six percent who could not recall any courses addressing adoption in their undergraduate coursework either (Javier, et al., 2006). Because adoptees are overrepresented in a variety of populations, including but not limited to competitive athletics, addictions, eating disorders, LGBTQ+, and incarceration, it is likely that you are working with adoptees whether you know it or not.

Too often, I have heard an adoptive parent say we went to a therapist, but it only seemed to make it worse. Adoptees seem to be more gentle in their assessment that it just didn’t help or the counselor didn’t get it. Because I know therapists really want to practice excellence and offer quality services, I am bringing together experts in the field of Adoption Therapy for easy access information on a variety of topics that impact adoptees, birth and biological parents, adoptive parents, and those in the child welfare system. 


Adoption Therapy Webinars Frequently Asked Questions:

Why is it $25 USD?

My goal is to increase the adoption information known by as many therapists as possible because what I know from adoptees and adoptive families is that experience and good intentions isn’t enough when working with the adoption constellation. I want this information to be easily accessible for professionals, both online and in price point.

It is also important to me that professionals are compensated for their time, labor, and expertise. Half of all income from any Adoption Therapy webinar, whether live or recorded, is paid to the expert.

Can I get CE credits for these webinars?

Check with your state licensing board about category II credits in your area; however, we are not a CE provider which would require a higher price point.
