I help my clients gain insight and self-awareness, learn stress-reduction coping tools, and improve communication and self-esteem.

KIDS and FAMILIES

I specialize in the treatment of children and adolescents struggling with behavioral problems, depression, and anxiety. My approach is to often use a structural family therapy/cognitive behavioral therapy/mindfulness approach to help children and families improve communication and increase adaptive functioning.

INFERTILITY COUNSELING

I provide infertility counseling that includes all aspects of infertility. I help clients find ways to cope with various infertility related issues such as unexplained infertility and specific diagnoses, pregnancy loss, Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), third party reproduction, adoption, and decisions of living child-free as well as pregnancy and parenting after ART.

Going through the process of Assisted Reproductive Tehnologies can be stressful and anxiety-provoking. There are often many difficult decisions t be made and one's self-esteem and interpersonal relationships can suffer. I offer a variety of services to help the infertility patient increase coping tools and emotional stability.

I provide a variety of specialized services including:

  • Personalized psychotherapy to cope with unexplained infertility and specific diagnoses
  • Processing grief and loss
  • Letting go of past trauma to be able to remain hopeful through the journey to parenthood.
  • Couples counseling
  • Support through third party reproduction (egg/sperm/embryo donation, surrogacy, etc.)
  • Adoption counseling
  • Child-free living
  • Single parenting
  • LGBTQ parenting
  • Pregnancy and Parenting after ART (including talking to your kids about donor conception)
  • Gestational Surrogate assessments and reports

I was recently trained by renowned psychotherapist and hypnotherapist Helen Adrienne on mind-body stress reduction techniques for the infertility patient, and am able to provide guided visualizations/meditations and mind-body stress reduction techniques as requested. I also do clinical assessments on potential panel at the 2014 Fertility Planit conference and have written about infertility for Fertility Authority, Fertility Planit, and the New York Times.

YOGA 

I am also a certified yoga teacher and utilize many mind-body techniques to help bring the mind and body into balance. Separate from traditional talk therapy, I offer private in-home yoga sessions and can create a yoga program specifically designed to build physical and emotional strength. I have collaborated with my sister, Hana Grobel MD, an integrative family physician, to create Yoga For Health and Wellness, a series of yoga workshops that combines medicine, mental health and yoga together to help increase overall well-being.
