Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. This website is dedicated to sharing more information about the work that I, Dr. Amanda L. Baden, does in the areas of transracial adoption and international adoption. I hope you will find the information provided helpful in getting to know me and my work.
I am a counseling psychologist with a therapy practice in Manhattan (NYC) in which I provide therapy to children, adolescents, adults, and families primarily from the adoption kinship network. I am also an Associate Professor of Counselor Education at Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey located just outside New York City.
I hope that you enjoy learning more about the services that I offer and the work that I do as a practicing psychologist, scholar, educator, consultant, and community member (i.e., adult adoptee from Hong Kong). Participate in my current research studies, get updates on adoption-related information, and get news about events that I endorse or at which I will speak. Read updates on my work and read blog posts from my guests (friends, colleagues, and professional) who are doing important and amazing work to improve adoption practice, ethics, reform, policy, and support.
