'Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.' - The Dhammapada

 

Welcome

Holistic, compassionate and collaborative are the cornerstones of my approach to infertility counseling and perinatal mental health therapy. My practice is dedicated to providing a safe and emotionally supportive space for women dealing with infertility challenges and perinatal mental health concerns, as well as a host of other women's issues. I have deep empathy and a first-hand understanding of the impact of these difficulties on the mental health and wellness of my clients, and I partner with them to work through present struggles; promote healing; and improve emotional/mental wellness. My goal is to help my clients find and nurture peace along their individual journeys.

Infertility Counseling

Although the fertility journey can be stressful and often isolating, please know that you are not alone. Women who have difficulty conceiving or staying pregnant, are in the vast majority. However, the learned and expected silence surrounding these issues leaves many women struggling. Infertility counseling can be helpful in addressing:

  • Anxiety and Stress

  • Grief and Depression

  • Relationship and communication issues

  • Feelings of overwhelm/hopelessness/worthlessness

  • Exploring other family building options: surrogacy, donor eggs/sperm

  • Navigating adoption or life without children

  • Work-Life-Fertility treatment balance

Perinatal Therapy

 The perinatal period encompasses the period before pregnancy, during pregnancy, and up to one year after childbirth. Perinatal mental health challenges are very common. At least 1 in 5 women experiences perinatal mental health challenges. Perinatal Therapy seeks to address these challenges which can include: 

  • Anxiety

  • Depression 

  • Postpartum blues

  • Perinatal mood disorders

  • Perinatal/pregnancy loss

  • Grief

  • New parent challenges
