InFERTILITY & Childfree Support

I am uniquely equipped to help women walk through the journey of infertility since my personal story includes experience with infertility. I understand the emotional turmoil and stress on the body that infertility causes individually, as well as the life-changing impact it has on couples. Infertility and barriers related to starting a family impact people from all social and cultural intersections of race, religion, gender, and sexuality. I provide services to help individuals and couples struggling with infertility, third-party reproduction, adoption.

I understand while some may be working towards the goal of conceiving and starting a family, others may be seeking assistance to process losses related to infertility, a fertility journey ending or childlessness due to any circumstancesChild-free individuals and couples may be seeking additional resources and support related to a child-free choice & lifestyle.
