Arah Gould, MA LPC completed the Training for Adoption Competency (TAC) program in 2022. Arah is currently a Family Support Specialist at the Oregon Post Adoption Resource Center (ORPARC) in Oregon. At ORPARC, family support specialists provide information & referral; training & education; therapeutic listening; systems navigation; advocacy; and personalized parenting consultation to families who have adopted out of the OR state child welfare system or another state’s child welfare system (and now reside in Oregon). We do not provide therapy directly but are happy to help a family find an adoption competent therapist in their area. ORPARC services are free to eligible families.
