Infertility therapists in Bethesda, Maryland MD
Psychologist, MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology
Over the years I have seen families who are undergoing In Vitro Fertilization, a treatment for Infertility. I am aware of the challenges that this process involves for the participants. In addition, I have seen families who are considering adopting a child. Also, I have done evaluations for parents who are adopting children, and I have seen some of the pitfalls that this process can involve. I offer free zoom seminars, which promote stress reduction, and also of relationships with family members. Please feel free to call me for a consultation: 301-229-8000

Being a parent and having a child is a dream often taken for granted. Very few individuals plan for the numerous fertility difficulties that may interfere with one's path toward parenthood. Not only can infertility devastate one's dreams of giving birth, scientific studies indicate that the emotional and physical toll associated with infertility and its medical treatments are comparable with other serious medical conditions. Adoption is a beautiful alternative to childbirth and a viable path to parenthood. In fact, decisions to enter parenthood through adoption are often unmotivated by infertility. However, with the joy and excitement of adoption comes substantial lifestyle alterations, changes, and demands. At Washington Psychological Wellness, we aim to help you through this process. Whether you plan to conceive, are trying to conceive, going through IVF or a surrogate, have plans for adoption, or are just curious, we can help. Our clinicians provide an integrative and holistic mind-body approach to treatment focused on implementing self-efficacy, mastery, calmness, and inner peace. We will work with you to explore your many options and empower you to have the tools and skills necessary to prepare for whatever next steps you will be faced. We are currently accepting new clients. Telehealth (online) therapy options are available. Call now to schedule your appointment!

Adoption is not a one-time event for adoptees, adoptive parents, or birth mothers. It becomes a part of you, and sometimes we need help and guidance to integrate that part into our larger life journey. I love to work with individuals that are part of the adoption circle. I have completed Adoption Competency training through CASE, have worked in advocacy for older children adopted internationally, and am an adoptive mom myself. By looking at your unique situation through an attachment lens, I can help you feel more connected to yourself and those around you.
