Katherine Jae Naftzger, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Newton Highlands
Parenting and raising kids is complicated, at best! Family issues that arise can be hard to figure out and even when you do understand what's going on, it can be hard to change things on your own. Whether you're an adoptive parent, an adult adoptee, or a couple looking for help and guidance, I would love to hear from you.
In my work, I hope to help parents to feel more empowered and hopeful and for kids to feel more resilient. When we have done that, I know that I've done my job! I am passionate about nearly impossible problems that seem impossible, and work to create change.
It can make all the difference to work with someone who specializes in adoption! I bring 15 as a psychotherapist and a lifetime of being a Korean-adoptee. I am passionate about helping adoptees AND adoptive parents, individually and together.
