Denise Alexis Craig


Hi, I’m Judith Alexis Craig (she/her); I’m a trauma-informed, registered social worker, therapist, facilitator, and consultant dedicated to supporting families from an anti-racist, intersectional, and inclusive perspective.

My journey of self-discovery and identity development, has included transformational healing from losses and traumas, including abandonment, adoption, abusive relationships, and family breakdown. Reconnecting with my roots and reclaiming my identity helped me overcome depression and low self-worth

Working with children and families for more than 20 years, I view my role as co-creating with my client’s strategies and tools that will help them navigate complex social and emotional challenges that arise in families specializing in adoption and permanency.

Being a transracial, transnational, foundling adoptee gives me a unique perspective on the complexities of adoption. Additionally, as a parent of biological and adopted children, I continuously learn from their experiences.

As a result of my personal and professional insights, I have designed programs and workshops focusing on family relationships, parenting, adoption, and permanency, including crucial core issues of grief, loss, identity, and healing. In addition, I have presented at international conferences, retreats and on various media platforms.

In addition to my Bachelor of Social Work degree from Toronto Metropolitan University, I obtained a BA (Hons) Post-Qualifying Certificate in Children, Young People, Families and Carers from Kingston University, London, England. I have also been trained in the ACT Adoption&Permanency Curriculum for Child Welfare and Mental Health Professionals.

I look forward to connecting with you and learning how to best support you.


Have you ever felt that you were not enough? Have you felt conflicted about your identity?

Are you searching for your belonging and your purpose?

Are you adopted and need support in a safe space?

Are you a foster or adoptive family who would benefit from trauma-informed guidance?

I would be honoured to assist you on your journey.
