Have you been struggling with infertility?
Maybe you've been secretly going through infertility testing or perhaps you feel all alone in figuring out your next steps. You may be overwhelmed by finding out scary information, or simply your hormones are out of control. Perhaps you’re feeling desperate or hopeless.
Whatever it is that you're experiencing, you're beginning to notice the impact in every facet of your life:
Feeling overwhelmed all the time
Struggling to stay focused and productive
More reactive or shutdown in your relationships
Experiencing intense emotions
Not making time for the things you love

Identifies your supports
Allows you to focus on one step at a time

Q: What is therapy for infertility like?
A: Therapy consists of 50 minute long weekly or biweekly sessions. During the sessions the therapist will be a supportive listener as the fellow therapist breaks down current upsets at their own pace. I will provide insight and challenge you to reflect on unhelpful ways of communicating and acting that are causing distress. Often times, I lead clients through awareness and mindfulness exercises for additional felt relief. Goals and progress are reflected on regularly to provide acknowledgement, encouragement, and validation.
Q: How long do I need to be in therapy?
A: The length of therapy is very dependent on the client and their individual needs and circumstances. Some fellow therapists find relief after just a few months of therapy and others take a bit longer. The pace and length of therapy is really up to the client's desire and ability to implement learned tools/understandings in their personal lives.
Q: How do I know if therapy for infertility will work for me?
A: While no therapist can make guarantees, if you show up to sessions and choose to show up for yourself, most clients find relief and start to feel better. Many of today's solutions in therapy are one-size-fits-all, leading so many to feel dependent on their therapist or like they're not making any real progress. I know that your circumstances are unique, so every step is tailored to you and always with your end goals in mind.
Q: How do we get started?
A: Reach out by sending a message, emailing, or calling. We will arrange a quick 15 minute phone chat. Our conversation will consist of you sharing a little about what is going on and me answering any questions you may have. We will both have a chance to decide if we are a good fit. Then, I will get some general information so I can email you a few forms to fill out and sign before our first session. therapy near me for anxiety
