reproductive counseling for couples and individuals in Virginia

The Center for Reproductive Counseling guides individuals and couples in Virginia through the stress of treatment by offering family building options and counseling, as well as counseling for individuals and couples interested in third-party family-building alternatives. We offer implications counseling for donors and recipients, and we assist in the transition to an adoption plan or child-free living as well. Our team also provides consultation by evaluating potential egg donors and gestational carriers (intended parents) for clinics and agencies in the state of Virginia and around the country.

We provide:

  • Individual Counseling
  • Couples Counseling
  • Mind/Body Infertility Workshops
  • Evaluations for egg donors and gestational surrogates
  • Implications counseling and consultation services for 3rd party reproduction/surrogacy
  • Psychological testing

During individual/couples counseling or a group workshop, the goals are to achieve:
  • Increased sense of control and well being.
  • Managing and/or reducing physical symptoms.
  • Learning coping tactics to diminish grief and loss.
  • Restructuring negative thought patterns to decrease worry and upset.
  • Increasing mindfulness and ease through relaxation, deep breathing techniques.
It is known that stress can result in a diminished quality of life and hinder the body’s ability to function normally and efficiently. Women who have difficulty conceiving suffer as much anxiety and depression as women with heart disease and cancer. Worry and anxiety can hinder fertility – alleviating stress can help increase the chances of conceiving. We’re here to help with the mental health struggles that so frequently exist with conception and infertility. We also have additional resources on our website to help you on your journey, as well as testimonials from some the amazing individuals and couples we have worked with. You can contact our team directly by email, phone call, or text message, Monday through Saturday.
