Aly Yisrael, Social Worker
I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Stanford University and a Master's of Social Work and Master's of Public Health from the University of California, Berkeley. Adoption is a part of my family and I am passionate about the topic, particularly around the issues of attachment and identity development.
I joined Bay Area Adoption Services in 2016 and worked there until the agency's merger with Adopt in 2019. Now, as a clinical supervisor at Adopt, I conduct home studies, support our social workers, and help families when they receive their referral.
I enjoy supporting parents and children as they become a family, and love knowing that we are a support system for them for the long term.
