Fertility Counselor

Melissa Kelleher, LCSW

Melissa Kelleher, LCSW, works with couples and individuals during their fertility journey, helping them handle loss and disappointments, as well as giving them the tools to make decisions related to their fertility challenges. 

Since becoming a licensed social worker in 2006, Melissa has worked with patients to help them better manage stress from a variety of situations, which gives her useful perspective for fertility patients. In particular, her previous work with teens and parents of pediatric patients gives her relevant experience for many PCOS patients.

Melissa has been working with fertility patients at Illume Fertility for many years, primarily with intended parents and donors.
