Living childfree is a conscious choice not to become a parent. Living childfree is often an option considered by women who prioritize their own wellbeing, focus on goals unrelated to raising children, or who anticipate that becoming a mother might be difficult or undesirable for them. A choice to live childfree is easier for some than others. For those who experience uncertainty or confusion about living childfree, therapy can help to provide clarity.
As a therapist I enjoy working with women as they explore what it means to live an authentic, empowered childfree life. I am particularly passionate about working with women who experience anxiety, shame, or indecision that is intertwined with their decision to live childfree. I want to help you build confidence in your reproductive choices and live the most authentic life possible!
