What Sets Us Apart

Mental Health Counseling

Your mental health is just as important as your physical health

Many infertility patients find it beneficial to receive professional counseling at some point during their treatment, with or without a partner.

Counseling can be helpful when individuals or couples are at critical decision-making points in their journey, such as whether or not to try IVF, use an egg donor, give up treatment or pursue adoption.

Counseling sessions can help to improve your mental health, lower your stress and anxiety, and offer new, helpful tools to manage the roller coaster of infertility.
