Experiencing infertility can be incredibly emotionally painful. Challenges with conceiving a child can cause stress and lead to anxiety and depression. A diagnosis of infertility can cause grief, emotional trauma and put strain on your relationships. Seeing a qualified mental health professional when you are struggling with infertility can be very helpful. Therapy can help couples deal with the anger or guilt they may be feeling and it can also help them to explore alternative options – like adoption or fertility treatments – in a safe space. If you are experiencing fertility challenges, reach out to one of TherapyDen’s infertility experts today.

Building a family can seem like a simple process, so when it starts to take time or for medical reasons, interventions are suggested, this can feel startling. I have specialized training in working with individuals and couples managing the assisted reproductive process as well as coping with infertility.

— Julie Bindeman, Psychologist in Rockville, MD

I have worked with many straight and queer families for whom parenthood is the only thing in their lives they have not been able to achieve by setting their minds to it. Infertility can provoke extreme grief and can hold life at a standstill. It can wreck havoc on a relationship and leave partners unsure of how to create a future going forward. Therapy can be critical to finding the way. Please see my page on infertility on my website at
