Are you navigating infertility or complicated conception? Fertility troubles can bring up a lot of our inner beliefs about our bodies, our partners bodies, feelings about medical interventions, and our expectations about life and relationships. It can feel lonely and isolating to go through this alone, and your partner might not always understand. There is often a lot of unknowns and that can leave you feeling unbalanced and frustrated. You might feel like you are on a roller-coaster of emotions, both happy and hopeful as well as disappointed and angry.
You might get angry and feel the burn of jealousy every time you see someone post a pregnancy announcement. You might have a hard time being around your friends and family who already have children. You feel guilty for avoiding people, but can’t bear to put yourself through the intense feelings that come with a reminder of the fact that you don’t have a baby.
Sharing your story with a safe, trusted person can help. If you can find a safe space where you can share all of these emotions, you release yourself of the burden of carrying them alone. You don’t have to do this alone.
I work with women, men, and couples experiencing infertility. Together we create a place for you to come and share your experience. I will help you feel some mastery over your feelings, learn new ways to navigate boundaries with friends and family, and help you explore the impact on your relationship with yourself and your partner. I want you to feel in control of your story, even in a time when many things are out of control.
I'm an active and current member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine where I stay up to date with current research and training in reproductive therapy. We can work together to address whatever is specifically causing you stress about the process of your journey.
