Reproductive Counseling

There are many ways to create the family you want. But no matter how you become a parent, the process often brings new feelings to the surface. People going through the family-building process—whether naturally or medically-assisted; alone or with a partner—often talk about its anxiety but also its loneliness: that on top of managing the logistics, they feel isolated in their experience, imagining that their range of thoughts and feelings are unique to them.

I offer therapy and consultation to help people navigate the emotional path to parenthood.

I offer therapy and consultation to help people navigate the emotional path to parenthood. I also work in conjunction with reproductive psychiatrists, fertility physicians, adoption attorneys, donor and surrogacy agencies, and intended parents to provide support for individuals and couples in the following areas:

  • Emotional Aspects of Pregnancy
  • Miscarriage
  • Understanding differing parenting and role expectations in a couple
  • Pressures of infertility while keeping the couple bond strong
  • Postpartum depression, anxiety, or difficulty bonding with baby
  • Body image and sexual changes related to pregnancy or postpartum

Third-Party Assisted Reproduction Services
