Psychotherapy for Infertility
A diagnosis of infertility is often a heartbreaking and unpredictable life crisis. After the initial shock has passed, one’s emotions might alternate between anger, grief, worry, jealousy, and denial, among others. No matter how loving those around are, it might be difficult to feel supported. Psychotherapy can help work through the complex emotions that arise. I offer a safe place to share and sort out your anxieties, fears, and thoughts with understanding and without judgment.
Infertility can be very stressful on the couple. As a couple, your privacy and intimacy are put aside for the sake of having a child. Suddenly, there are other people involved in your bodily functions and your sex life. There might be feelings of anger, guilt, and the need to blame. You are faced with difficult feelings and decisions about how or if to proceed with your efforts to have a child. Psychotherapy is an opportunity for you and your partner or spouse to explore, understand, and express your feelings in a safe place.
