Areas of Expertise
We help patients manage the roller coaster of emotions and ongoing stress, rather than focusing on finding closure. Closure implies resolution, which may not be possible with the prolonged nature of loss or infertility.
We're here to be present and listen. Typically, this is what is missing when family and friends offer comments. They end up being hurtful or invalidating to the person experiencing loss or infertility.
We assist clients in articulating what they need from others around them. This may also incorporate methods for helping clients increase their assertiveness or self-confidence.
