Assessment And Support
With many years of experience in the psychological aspects of this rapidly evolving area of medicine, I am highly qualified to support clients in their journey to parenthood and sensitive to the impact of infertility on persons trying to have families. I have worked with numerous Victoria Fertility Centre clients, facilitating their progress through fertility treatments of various kinds.
I assess the readiness of participants planning to utilize In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), and the psychological preparedness of potential egg donors and gestational surrogates for particular intended parents.
This can be a difficult condition to diagnose because so many of the symptoms can be caused by other disorders. However, once properly diagnosed, it can be effectively treated with a team-based approach that should include a physician for medication management, plus a psychologist and/or a life coach for CBT.
