Please contact me if you would like to schedule a consultation for your practice or clinic. I offer the following services:
Program evaluation consulting to fertility clinics on best psychological practices to conform with American Association of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM standards). I am a current ASRM member and remain current with newly published research and techniques.
I can offer the following 8 Therapy Groups or informational group sessions to your patients at your clinic in person or via a Hangout on Air (live with viewer participation and later recorded for your clinic’s use), or other groups tailored to your clinic’s needs:
- 10 Session Mind-Body Fertility Series (research-proven to alleviate current mental health symptoms and increase fertility rates: 55% pregnancy rate for treatment group vs 20% control group)
- General Infertility Support Group
- Relaxation Training
- Fertility and Mental Health 101
- Coping over the Holidays
- Overcoming IVF Treatment Stress
- Setting Appropriate Boundaries with Family/Friends
- Self-Care and Fertility
I can also provide Staff Workshops on:
- Working with the Difficult Patient
- Avoiding Burnout in Reproductive Medicine
- Fostering Staff Group Cohesion
I can additionally provide staff consultation services/training if you are interested in cultural competence working with either a high LDS population (relatively common in the states of UT, CA, ID, NV, even Washington DC), or for competence more generally with clients coming from religious backgrounds, on the spirituality/fertility nexus. As you have likely already seen, religious patients tend to approach coping with infertility from a unique perspective, and I can help you harness those strengths as well as cultural sensitivities to be aware of.
Within-the-hour, free mini-crisis management session (phone call or facetime session for apple/iphone users) to patients who come in for a prenatal ultrasound ~ but no heartbeat is seen. It is crucial when patients receive such unexpected devastating news, to have at least a few minutes to talk, make a plan as to how they can cope over the next few days and learn how to deal with the reactions of others. I have published on bereavement research, and wrote my dissertation that consisted of interviewing loved ones of suicide victims, and am trained to offer such services to your patients.
