Infertility Counseling & Family Planning

Restore Intimacy and Hope

Struggling with Infertility?

Each month is a roller coaster of emotion. You spend half the month obsessively tracking your fertility window, sex with your partner has become scheduled and a chore (wasn’t this supposed to be the fun part?!), and you spend the second half of the month convinced you are pregnant and then berating yourself for getting your hopes up. Yet tragically, month after month, you are hit with a huge wave of grief over not being pregnant. You feel isolated from your loved ones as they struggle to find the right thing to say. You are disconnected from your partner and yourself, uncertain about the next step, and some days it feels like your anger and sadness will consume you.

Struggling with Family Planning?

You are faced with a number of decisions regarding your family. Perhaps you are wanting to add to your family, or you are fighting to preserve the family you have. Perhaps extended family members are coming to live with you, and you are trying to balance attending to their needs as well as your own. Family is most people's number one priority in life, but cultivating a healthy family when everyone has different experiences, thoughts, feelings and opinions can be very difficult!

 

I help individuals and couples share their emotions in a safe space and then move from a state of paralysis to action. I will share tools to increase your confidence when communicating your needs with your partner and your team (family, medical, adoption etc). We will also practice strategies to keep your head above water when you feel like you are drowning in sadness and despair.
