About This Group

A group for adults who were adopted in infancy or childhood, serving as a space to explore the experience of adoption and its impact on our current lives, to connect with others, and to offer and receive support. The group is open to adult adoptees of any age, and in any stage of search or reunion with birth families (including those who are uninterested in searching, and those who have been in reunion and chosen to close that door).

Licensed Psychotherapist

Melissa Walker, LCSW-R, is a psychotherapist in New York City. Since 2007, she has worked with adults and teens in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, couples therapy, and group therapy. She also provides clinical consultation to early-career therapists and teaches in a post-graduate psychotherapy training program. Melissa is interested in helping people put the full range of their thoughts and feelings into words in the interest of both self-understanding and more rewarding connections with others. Her practice is informed by a deep understanding of the ways our early experiences shape our developing selves, and by her own practices of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness.
