Therapy for Infertility & IVF

therapy for infertility and ivf

At Sarah Cline & Associates, we understand that building a family is a profound journey, filled with both joy and challenges.

Our warm approach ensures you will always feel safe, welcomed, and understood. We work with individuals experiencing primary or secondary infertility, who often face feelings of loss, anxiety about medical procedures, comparisons to others, and feelings of failure and inadequacy.

These challenges can impact daily life, but you don’t have to navigate them alone.

Expert Support for Your Mental Health Through Infertility & IVF

Our Approach

We come alongside our clients and help guide them through the process of understanding themselves better, with compassion and no shame we can uncover patterns in thinking and behavior that may add to their challenges.

We do this while instilling hope that things can improve and they can feel better with time. We always acknowledge and make space for the pain and sadness that many feel when going through infertility.

We offer our knowledge and experience to help clients understand things like depression and anxiety and trauma so that they are better able to work with their own experiences better. Compassion is at the root of what we do.

Compassion for self and for others. We help clients challenge the idea that they have to be perfect or that having mental health struggles means they are not capable and worthy people (or having infertility struggles and how that does not define them or lower their worth and value).

We also help clients challenge societal expectations that are not serving them well.

A Typical Session

During a 55-60 minute session, your therapist will listen closely without judgment or agenda. You are encouraged to share updates about your well-being, what has been working, and what hasn’t. The therapist will ask questions and provide insights or feedback.

Sessions are an open dialogue and may include:

  • Guided imagery
  • Body scanning to tune into emotions
  • Practicing skills to shift thinking patterns
  • Learning techniques to regulate emotions and calm anxiety
  • Working on concrete mental health support plans

Our compassionate counselors are here to support you through your family-building journey, helping you to feel empowered and prepared for the changes ahead.
