Fertility struggles can put an immense strain on your emotional well-being and your relationships. But many of us don’t realize how badly we needed some extra support…until we’ve finally received it. I recommend checking out our coping tools, but it’s also a good idea to see a therapist who specializes in infertility or fertility issues.
This is a fairly updated list of counsellors, therapists, psychologists, social workers, and psychiatrists in the greater Toronto area (GTA) who specialize in fertility issues. A few tips on how to select one:
- Contact a prospective therapist to find out his/her availability
- If you’re in financial need, ask about sliding scale pricing
- Go for an initial meeting to see if it’s a good fit
- If you haven’t seen a therapist before, try having meetings with a few different professionals, to get a feel for the kind of person who feels most supportive and helpful to you
