Public Speaking Engagements

With Rachel Forbes, LCSW

I believe in the power of sharing our stories and experiences, as it holds the capacity for inspiring connection, community and continued learning. I speak publicly from both a professional and personal lens: professionally as a therapist specializing in adoption and attachment trauma, and personally as a transracial and transcultural Korean American adoptee.
