Infertility can be an emotional, exhausting, and relentless experience that nearly 10-15% of couples bear. It can impact nearly every dimension of your life, including your physical and mental health, intimate relationships, friendships, work-life, and finances. Those experiencing infertility may feel alone, as if those around them don’t understand their struggles.
At Seasons of Life Therapy Services, Toni understands both the medical aspect of your struggles, as well as the emotional turmoil. Here to help you navigate the growing world of assisted reproductive technology (ART), and explore possible options for family building, such as intrauterine insemination, in vitro fertilization, and the use of donor gametes. In addition, counseling will provide you, and your partner, a safe and supportive environment to discuss what couples deem as, “one of the biggest challenges of their lives.”

Consultations & Evaluations
Are you considering the use of donor gametes or embryos to build your family? Debating the use of a gestational carrier? Considering donating?
These are big decisions! Most fertility clinics will require you to meet with a mental health professional who is trained in issues of infertility, and qualified to further explore the ins and outs of these life changing decisions with you. At Therapy Services for Families, we work in conjunction with well-known fertility clinics in the triangle to help you consider the benefits and risks of donation, and whether it is the right decision for your family. Consultations and evaluations are intended to provide time to discuss the exciting opportunity and adventure of donation, as well as the associated obstacles and challenges that research has discovered. Whether you hope to become an intended parent, donor, or gestational carrier, Therapy Services for Families is here to help you think through your options, answer your questions, and ultimately make the decision that is best for your family.
