Fertility Counseling

The mind is just as important as the body for individuals and couples going through fertility treatment.

Experiencing a range of emotions is normal under these circumstances and our team is here to help.

ORM Fertility has counseling sessions with our in-house psychologists, Britta Dinsmore, Ph.D. or Paula Wagenbach, Psy. D, available to patients. Ask your nurse for more information.
