Infertility Therapist and Coach in private practice with more than 25 years of clinical experience.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Hermosa Beach, CA
While widely acknowledged, involuntary childlessness is a crisis for individuals and couples triggering a deep sense of grief and loss. Challenges around infertility can lead to emotional strain on the individual and partnership making it difficult to seek support. I have had the unique perspective of facilitating structured "mind/body" self-soothing exercises within a therapeutic context to assist individuals and couples who are simultaneously undergoing fertility treatments.
I believe that how we navigate life is extricably linked to our cultural identities and how those identities get storied in the world. The ever-increasing hostility in the world towards those who identify as "other," along with my first-hand experience with systemic oppression, have strengthened my resolve to provide support for clients to grapple with their complexities within a safe therapeutic context.
I recognize that we all enter into relationships with the best of intentions and sometimes find ourselves disillusioned by the amount of conflict we may experience. We can become so fearful that we find ways to sabotage these relationships and distance ourselves from the very thing we crave – human connection. I can help you explore the "why" behind your struggle, thus cultivating a pathway towards healing.
