Jeanette Yoffe has spent her career learning how children and adults adapt to the experience of foster care and adoption. She has a private practice in Los Angeles HERE and developed a range of effective therapeutic interventions available on Amazon for children, teens, and their families.
After working with many families in Los Angeles, she saw a great need to support children, adolescents, adults, and their families. So in 2011, she started a grassroots non-profit organization called Celia Center,
which she named after her first mother, Celia. And started "a little support group that could" called Adopt Salon Constellation for all involved in families connected by birth, foster care, adoption and beyond. This group has been instrumental in providing psychoeducational support for foster and adoptive families, adoptees and first mothers and has created a stronger sense of family for all!
In 2019 Jeanette
published and recorded a play about growing up in foster care and adoption called,
"What's Your Name, Who's Your Daddy?" now available on Amazon and Audible for families and kids (Ages 13 &up) to listen, talk and connect together about the experience HERE
