About Psychological Support Services
At The IVF CenterSM we can help you address the physical challenges of getting pregnant as well as the emotional issues that you will face during this time. Dr. Judith Burnett is a clinical reproductive psychologist who offers psychological counseling services to meet the unique needs of individuals and couples coping with infertility challenges.
Professional counseling may help you to cope more effectively with feelings of confusion, disappointment, depression, helplessness, failure, hopelessness or other emotions that arise as a result of your experience in addressing fertility issues.
Psychological practices emphasize utilizing clients’ strengths by honoring the uniqueness of their experiences and assist clients in helping themselves. It focuses on integrating the relationship between emotional and physical health as well as spiritual well being.
The inability to conceive or maintain a pregnancy affects individuals and couples in myriad ways. The “infertility experience” often invades every aspect of individuals’ and couples’ intimate lives.
In addition, you may feel shame, doubt, anger, as well as guilt about your difficulty having a child. Fertility struggles often produce a considerable drain on one’s resources (e.g., time, financial, spiritual energy). Finally, relationships with friends, family and professional colleagues may also be impacted.
Infertility is a powerful and formidable adversary and Dr Burnett’s philosophy is that individuals and couples faced with fertility struggles endure repeated “invisible losses” which often are not recognized in our society. Psychological support to face these challenges helps to normalize and externalize this difficult experience.
