I’m unapologetically abortion positive. You will never feel judged in my practice. I respect all choices and options related to reproductive health: the right to make a choice in reproductive health is primary. I’m an advocate for family size choice: whether you never have children, are ‘one and done’ or have made any other family size decisions- I am supportive and helpful in methods to handle ambivalence or frank resistance to your choices- either imposed by yourself or others in your life.

— Vanessa Gorelkin, Occupational Therapist in Scottsdale, AZ
 

Loss can encompass many different experiences when it comes to pregnancy, fertility, adoption, being the partner of an expecting person, etc. These are complex experiences and I pride myself on working with clients around processing their individual stories; no one's grief or feelings can be duplicated.

The loss of a child, no matter the age or circumstances is a loss of a lifetime. Grieving this loss is a 7 stage process.

Addressing your reproductive health concerns in therapy may look like addressing sexual difficulties that impact your ability to conceive, exploring decisions about how or when you want to become a parent, or finding fulfillment in living child free. You may also need space to address impacts of experiences with abortion, infertility, or surrogacy. Therapy provides you with space to understand your reproductive story and build confidence to make informed choices about your reproductive health.

Pregnancy loss, whether due to a miscarriage or intentional decision to end a pregnancy, is like taking a sharp turn onto an unexpected path. Research finds that talking about a painful experience helps us move forward with more resilience. Therapy provides a safe place for you to explore your reactions and process your new reality. Our work will focus on helping you develop the tools you need to move forward.
