(IN)

FERTILITY

We wouldn't choose this path or wish it on anyone...but what if we could find peace, connection, and meaning in the midst of it?

(In)fertility is confusing, devastating, and whole-life-changing.

It can also be incredibly lonely.

But it doesn't have to be the latter.

Care for your mind and heart. Therapy helps you really see the depths of yourself - emotionally, psychologically, mentally, and spiritually - in order to to achieve more peace and compassion for yourself in this journey.

Your own fertility coach! Feel like you wish you had more support during this journey to motherhood? 

Coaching might be a good fit for you if you are looking for specific encouragement, motivation, and empowerment.

My (in)fertility Story

My work is informed by my own experience (past and current) with infertility.  My journey to motherhood has wrecked me, re-shaped me, and, ultimately, strengthened me.

 

Infertility has made me the woman I am today by stripping me of all I thought I knew to be absolutely true and begging me to surrender to what IS. To the present moment...to the mystery...to my innermost being. 

 

When you and I meet, I will be happy to tell you my story if you're interested. My journey has spanned over numerous years and has included many treatments, medications, procedures, and interventions (including IUI & multiple rounds of IVF). In all of it, I have combined both conventional and functional medicine treatments alongside spiritual & emotional practices to support my body in its quest toward pregnancy. 

After years of struggle- surrender- struggle- surrender cycles, my husband and I conceived our miracle baby, Micah, in 2018. He just turned 2 and not a day goes by that I'm not forever grateful to be his mother. You see, this (in)fertility journey is one that sticks with us...the pain stays, the sting is still there, AND it has the potential to transform into beautiful gratitude and deep awareness of the goodness in life. 

Throughout my journey, I gathered a wholistic, caring, intuitive team of support around me. This is what I want to help you do. 

Now, interestingly enough, I find myself back in the (in)fertility journey. I humbly bring this awareness and experience of secondary (in)fertility to our work together.

Though the details of our stories may be different, when we sit together, know that you are sitting with someone who has deeply processed her fertility journey...and who continues to do so.

 

Promise.

Therapy services for (In)fertility

You are doing everything you can to get your body ready to carry a child. What about your mind and heart?  This proved to be an essential piece of the puzzle for me.

Are you:

  • In the beginning stages of growing your family? 

  • Months or years in and feel the anxiety and sadness growing as it's just not happening yet? 

  • A single and/or partnered woman seeking to preserve your fertility?

  • Feeling lonely as you notice friends and family getting pregnant all around you? 

  • Unsure of next steps and need a place to talk through options? 

  • Wanting to explore deeper emotional ties to (in)fertility from a holistic mind, body, soul space? 

 

I love working with women individually and/or couples in a more traditional therapy setting. Generally, we meet for a 50 minute session 2-4 times a month. 

 

Pro Tip: Therapy is often covered through your out of network insurance benefits, so definitely inquire about this! I know every bit matters when you're paying for fertility treatments. 

(in)fertility COACHING

I offer coaching services, which vary a bit from traditional therapy. My goal as a fertility coach is to encourage, empower, motivate, and cheerlead you along your fertility journey.

 

What's the difference between (in)fertility therapy & coaching? 

Therapy is very focused on your past, present, and future, and we take a deep look at what's going on emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, and interpersonally. We may look at family patterning, trauma, beliefs, narratives, and we connect lots of dots to deepen your awareness and help you become more conscious in your life and in your journey to becoming a mother. We may look at patterns of fertility within your family and the emotional issues that come up when we think about motherhood. Therapy with me is depth work... it's soul work. 

 Coaching tends to be shorter term and can offer accountability and specific support during pertinent points in your journey, such as the "two week wait", procedure or treatment days, embryo transfer days, etc.  With coaching, we touch a bit on your past and where you come from, but much of coaching is about "Where are you now and where do you want to be?" I come in as a support to help you with your goals.

 

In addition to the ultimate goal of- some way, some how - becoming a mother, many fertility coaching clients have goals related to: implementing more self care, advocating for themselves with providers, coping with pregnant women in their lives, increasing connection with their partners, reducing stress and anxiety, and holistically caring for their bodies, spirits, minds.

 

Coaching is also a great option if you already work with a therapist and would like some additional (in)fertility support from someone who truly gets it. You can keep your therapist and add me as your coach! 

 

So, what are your coaching options?  I offer monthly packages, which offer you support from month to month with the option to end or transition to a different service at any point.
