Marcy Axness Ph.D.

In her early twenties, Dr. Marcy Axness was an Emmy-nominated, multiple award-winning writer/producer in the world of documentary television, working for CBS News, the Disney Channel, Lifetime, Showtime and others. But becoming a mother rocked her well-ordered world and called her toward personal as well as intellectual growth. Her own life and discoveries as an adopted person and a mother led her to pursue deeper understanding of how we become who we become, and just how early that becoming begins!

Dr Axness’ areas of expertise include adoption (emotional, developmental and spiritual issues), prenatal parenting, and interpersonal neurobiology. She is a professor of prenatal development. Marcy also has a private practice coaching parents-in-progress, and provides training for childcare, adoption, education, and mental health professionals about the latest findings in the science of human thriving.
