We Offer Compassion

While assisted reproductive technology brings the hope of having a child to millions of people each year, many people find the medical processes involved very stressful, to say the least. Oftentimes, it can come to feel as though the process has taken over your life.

If you are struggling with infertility, you have likely suffered the loss of your reproductive story. This is the story we all create (consciously or not) about how we will become parents. Some people are more aware of their story than others, but once the blow of infertility strikes, the discrepancy between your dream and reality can leave you feeling robbed, traumatized, and grief stricken even before you begin your first procedure.

When infertility persists, your fundamental beliefs about yourself, your relationships, your sense of competence, and your vision of your future can feel shattered. This is not how you imagined the path to parenthood.

We Have Expertise

You do not have to endure this difficult process alone.

Whether individually, in a group, or with your partner, psychotherapy focuses on understanding your reproductive story and how it is impacting your current experience. Finding understanding and support for what you are going through can bring hope, relief, and strength to persevere.

Our approach will address you as a whole person—body, mind, and spirit. Together we will discover ways to strengthen your relationships, bolster social support, and help you heal from the traumatic experience of encountering infertility and its treatments. You will learn techniques to quiet your nervous system, reduce the stress response, and develop healthy forms of coping. We will also address basic lifestyle factors such as eating well, exercising, and getting enough sleep.

We Emphasize Wellness

When the stress of life begins to feel too heavy, seeking support through psychotherapy can help you stay resilient. Well-being comes, in part, by finding something you can proactively do about your challenging circumstance. Our fundamental goal is to help you recover and bounce back from life’s setbacks—whatever they may be.
