Feelings of stress, anxiety, depression, and helplessness are common responses when an individual or couple are facing infertility. At Amethyst Therapy, we provide compassionate support to people who are struggling to have a child or dealing with reproductive health concerns. Regardless of where you are in your journey, we understand the experiences of grief, loss, and trauma that can accompany one’s experience with infertility, as well as the impact infertility can have on relationships with family and friends. We offer a warm and welcoming therapeutic space where it’s safe to explore your worries, thoughts, and emotions, and to receive support without fear of judgment.
