Basics of Surviving Fertility - Free Lesson

Trouble Conceiving? Now What?!

It is such an exciting time for couples when they finally decide to have a baby... until some time goes by, some concern why pregnancy hasn't occurred, and then finally a gynecologist suggests some further exploration. It's all so new.

The doctors and specialists are amazing in the work they do. What is lacking is the down to earth, personal connection to further understand your unique situation, changes in your life, and managing intense emotions along the way. This course increases your awareness to the grief experience within fertility struggles.

This is not intended to replace therapy. Rather it can be a supportive resource with self-help tools.

Program includes:

Understanding grief associated to your fertility struggle

Resources for you to find additional information to learn more about your specific issues

Let me introduce myself... Hello, I'm Julie.

I created these artful courses for YOU! I know the importance of quality information when you are searching for understanding within your current situation. Unfortunately the internet is full of discussion groups that give misinformation, are a collection of personal experiences, or simply opinion. That may distract you with your own growth and empowerment.

You may be looking for some self-help tools. These courses can guide you through.

On the other hand, you may not have resources in your area or you may not want to participate in groups or workshops due to the private nature of your situation. Please note: these courses are not a replacement for professional counseling if you are in need. You are welcome regardless of where you live. Within the courses, it is encouraged you share your experiences as you feel comfortable with other course participants. I hope you find useful information and tools to help you now.

I share my experiences from a personal and professional perspective... giving you what has worked in my life as well as for my clients so you don't have to try to figure it out all on your own. I have had my own personal experience with infertility, grief and a unique experience of parenting. My husband and I were able to became parents through foster care adoption and we ended our foster parenting journey when we moved out of Illinois. I'm here to tell you, there is hope. Life may seem uncertain right now. After significant deaths, my life was different. After infertility treatment, my life was different. After becoming a foster & adoptive parent, my life was different yet again. I have and will continue to grow and deepen my relationship with my spirit through these experiences.

Art Therapy and Counseling are a second career for me that began In 2009. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Nationally Certified Counselor and a Registered Art Therapist. I have presented in throughout Illinois and have traveled in the US to present regarding art therapy, grief, and coping. Learn more about my experience and professional memberships.
