Involuntary Childlessness (or Childfree Not By Choice) is an experience lived by those who would have desired to become parents but were unable to do so after experiences such as a diagnosis of infertility, a reproductive trauma, or attempts to build their family that did not result in parenthood.

I come into this work with an understanding that my clients often have dreams and desires of being parents that have been present as early as they can remember and know that the significant loss of involuntary childlessness will have a profound impact on the hopes and goals that you had for your future. I view therapy for Involuntary Childlessness as a journey of healing and self-discovery. We will work together to understand the impacts of your reproductive story and create an empowered, authentic vision of your future. Whether you are considering making a choice not to have children or are already experiencing involuntary childlessness, I would be honored to support you on your journey.
Topics we may explore together include:
Finding fulfillment and purpose outside of fertility treatments or raising children of your own
Exploring the impact of living childfree on your future and your relationships
Building clarity around difficult decisions related to continuing fertility treatment, additional pathways to building families, or living childfree
Regaining a sense of balance and control after experiences with infertility and fertility treatments
Recreating connection with your body after experiences with infertility and fertility treatments
