Therapy for Infertility

Serving Women in San Diego, CA

You never imagined it would be this hard to get pregnant.

Once you make the decision that you want to become a mother, you envision what your life will look like when that day comes. You might even be able to picture your sweet baby's face. When you have this desire in your heart, every month that you get a negative pregnancy test is soul-crushing

It's beyond frustrating. Sure, you have hope every month or with every new treatment that you could have a positive outcome - but in the hard moments it's like you don't even recognize yourself anymore. You look around and all you can see are other women who have the life you want. Your friends and family can't relate, and you can't handle one more piece of unsolicited advice. You wonder if it's your fault, or you blame yourself even it you don't have all the answers yet. ​

It's scary. Depending on where you are in your fertility journey and the path you've chosen to take, there can be overwhelming decisions about the next treatments, financing said treatments, and evaluating the physical and emotional toll that treatments can take on you and your partner. You might be asking yourself what will happen if you cannot get pregnant. You wonder what that would mean for you, and for your relationship.

How did this come to be your life? You did not sign up for this journey.

Whether you are trying to conceive (TTC) or you have an official diagnosis of "infertility," this entire process is a ride you never consented to getting on. No woman that is struggling with fertility challenges should have to face this journey without support from someone who gets it. It makes sense that you are feeling the overwhelming stress of your experience. In fact, research has shown that women experiencing infertility have the same levels of anxiety and depression as women with potentially life-threatening diagnoses like cancer and heart disease. And as common as the stats tell us that infertility is, most people really do not get it unless they have been through it themselves.

I am here to help you process the grief and pain that you've been walking around with. I will be with you every step of the way, as you navigate this journey. We will work towards letting go of the shame, guilt, and self-doubt. You deserve to have compassion for yourself, and let go of the things that are not yours to hang on to. 

The reality is... infertility sucks.

I'm just going to call it how I see it. It sucks the energy out of you and your relationship. It completely changes how you view the world, as there are reminders of (seemingly) abundant fertility everywhere. And it challenges your view of self, your partner, and your future. It's lonely, and isolating. But you don't have to hold the heaviness of this all on your own.

You deserve to be emotionally cared for during this journey. It is crucial to have the support you need to share your unique experience and concerns, connect with someone who gets it, and learn techniques to manage the wide range of emotions that may be coming up for you. You will learn specific strategies and mind-body techniques to help you address your stress and anxiety. 

Counseling for Infertility can help you:

  • Process the grief & pain you have experienced in this journey.

  • Advocate for yourself in your relationships & with care providers.

  • Identify your needs & communicate them with others. 

  • Identify beliefs that are not serving you, and learn how they may be impacting your life.

  • Improve your relationship with your partner as you navigate your unique journey.

  • Feel empowered by your choices.
