My Approach to Helping
You’re suffering. You’re experiencing infertility issues and your world has collapsed. You’re feeling sad, hurt, confused, angry, and isolated. Family and friends, although well-meaning, cannot provide you meaningful support. They don’t understand your pain and frustration. You need help coping with these big feelings.
The family building journey can be a confusing and overwhelming time, especially if getting pregnant hasn’t been as easy as you had hoped. Infertility impacts all aspects of your life; your relationships, your outlook, and how you feel about yourself.
If you’re experiencing infertility, considering assisted reproductive technologies or adoption to create your family, I can help.
You don’t need to go through this alone.
Using a holistic perspective, I help clients overcome emotional pain stemming from reproductive health challenges. I’ll provide the tools and resources to help you feel better. You’ll achieve a sense of calm. You’ll regain control & clarity. You’ll feel confident in your ability to make decisions. You’ll better advocate for yourself.
Everyone who dreams of creating a family of their deserves the opportunity. I support individuals, couples, the LGBTQ+ community, single parents by choice, experiencing infertility, considering ART or adoption on their family building journey.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
It was my own experience with infertility, two high risk pregnancies, and difficult births that motivated me to work with couples and individuals facing similar life events. I believe in the transformational power of the therapeutic relationship. We heal through the telling and retelling of our stories, we benefit greatly from the catharsis that comes from sharing our anguish and pain with someone who has been on a similar journey.
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
Psychotherapy is most effective when a trusting, respectful and caring relationship has developed between client(s) and their psychotherapist. Genuine empathy, alliance, attunement, and a client's experience of being seen, heard, respected and understood by their therapist are instrumental for psychotherapy to be successful.
