For a decade I've been working collaboratively with clients, developing ways to cope with and move through depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship and parenting issues, as well as providing emotional support to individuals and couples facing reproductive health issues, including infertility and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
At some point in our lives each of us faces obstacles or barriers we can't seem to overcome on our own. It's part of the human condition. Fortunately, professional counseling and psychotherapy can help you develop ways of moving forward through the places where you feel stuck. The empathic, and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship I offer can help you discover, or rediscover, your own strengths to heal, thrive, and create the relationships and life you desire.

I also work with adoptive families and those who experience infertility.
It takes courage and awareness to seek therapy. If you are experiencing depression or anxiety, difficult relationships (past or present) or going through a life transition I may be able to help. Together we will work to determine whether this will be short-term solution focused treatment or more long-term, deeper work. We will build a safe place for you to experience yourself and help you to identify your strengths as well as areas of challenge. A place that is yours to receive the care you need.

Infertility Therapists
Infertility can have a profound impact on one’s mental health. When men and women find out that they can’t conceive, they may experience the same painful emotions as anyone coping with grief or profound loss. Common reactions include shock, frustration, grief, anger, decreased self-esteem, anxiety, and depression, but feelings about infertility can vary greatly depending on the source of the problems.

If you're looking for a Walnut Creek infertility therapist, these professionals provide infertility therapy and counseling in Walnut Creek.
