Infertility can be extremely distressing for any woman or couple to experience. Others around you become pregnant, leaving you feeling alone, sad, even insufficient. People keep asking when will you have kids, not knowing the extremely sensitive nature of that question. And, if you do decide to seek treatment or medication for help, those options come with many unknowns and anxieties.
If you are experiencing infertility, you might find it helpful to seek help from a mental health provider.
You may be feeling:
At Move Forward Counseling we utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help correct unhealthy and negative thought patterns which can occur within your journey. Mindfulness also serves as a helpful counseling technique for infertility. Working towards being in the present time positively, taking each day as it comes, and letting go of the things you cannot control is difficult, but you can grow stronger. We help you cope with the process by helping you guard against depression, anxiety, and stress.
Infertility feels like a lonely experience, but with the right professional to help guide you through the process, you will not feel so alone anymore.
Dr. Jennifer Collins at Move Forward Counseling provides one time evaluations which are required by their medical provider for individuals getting specific infertility interventions. Please call our office if you have questions or would like to schedule an evaluation.
