Welcome to Bridgepointe Therapy

The specialist for Charleston adoption therapy.  Bridgepointe Therapy offers counseling to children, adolescents and parents in adoptive and foster families using Adoption Competent Therapy from adoption therapist Emily Belknap.

Counseling at Bridgepointe Therapy, based in Charleston, SC and serving families throughout South Carolina, is provided through the lens of adoption, recognizing the unique and complex developmental, emotional and behavioral needs present in adoptive families.

Adoption competent therapy addresses these needs with consideration to and exploration of the pre-adoption experience, identity development, attaching in relationships, and the dynamics of openness in adoption.  Most importantly, our adoption therapy approach builds on the family’s strengths and honors that family relationships are the healing agents for children and adolescents who were adopted or spent time in foster care.

Bridgepointe Therapy provides child therapy, adolescent therapy, family therapy, and parenting support to families of foster care, domestic and international adoption, kinship care (caring for related children), as well as birth parents, adult adoptees and adults in the pre-adoption process.
