Adoptee Therapy Group



This weekly interpersonal therapy group for adult adoptees will deal with participants’ here and now situation and current life challenges with a special focus on identity and building healthy relationships, and addressing trauma, loss, rejection, connection and disconnection, and other major themes of adoption as they emerge in the group.  In addition to talking, we will pay attention to body process, feeling ourselves in the room and in relation to each other, to see how that informs and opens up pathways to non-verbal experience and expression.  The group is intended to complement individual therapy or as a stand-alone experience and will meet weekly on Mondays from mid-March through July.  


Midtown Manhattan (please inquire for exact address)


Every Monday 7:30pm-9:00pm from mid-March to the end of July


$80 per session, limit 6 participants

Group Therapist

Jennifer Griesbach is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Midtown Manhattan providing tailored support for early childhood trauma and loss, anxiety, and depression. She also offers couples counseling, and has a special interest in infant-parent therapy, helping new parents adjust to parenthood and develop a stronger, healthier bond with their baby and their partner.

Jennifer has unique expertise in supporting adult adoptees as they navigate identity formation, work through relationship challenges, and heal from early trauma. With specialized knowledge in this area, she is committed to guiding clients through exploring, understanding, and coming to peace with their adoption narrative.

Jennifer works from a Gestalt model with a somatic or body-oriented focus. She draws upon these approaches to help clients develop in self-awareness to support and heal in the present and to move past trauma at a comfortable pace. Her practice is located in midtown Manhattan, and is close to most subway lines and a short walk from Penn Station, the PATH train and Grand Central.
