Delivering Family Dreams

Our Team

The Cabin Counseling & Resource Center, Inc.

Couples experiencing infertility know that beyond the physical implications, many emotional issues arise. Shock, denial, anger, confusion, guilt, loneliness, grief, and depression are just a few of the emotions couples may experience in confronting infertility. Several staff therapists at The Cabin have special training in the physical and emotional aspects of infertility. If you are journeying with infertility, The Cabin can assist you in discovering the path to greater peace and fulfillment and help with evaluating treatment options.

In addition to general fertility-related counseling services, The Cabin also provides counseling services required for individuals and couples who wish to attempt pregnancy via the use of donor eggs/sperm or gestational carrier. They work closely with several local fertility practices to provide clients with a collaborative, seamless experience that addresses both physical and psychological concerns.
