FERTILITY COUNSELING


Dr. Cadow has counseled  many women, men, and couples on issues of infertility, egg donation, surrogacy, and adoption over the last 10 years.   She has worked with a number of fertility specialists in Los Angeles.  The anxiety that can accompany this process is treated with relaxation techniques for infertility medical procedures and/or concomitant medical issues that can complicate the process.  Cognitive behavioral therapy as well as psychodynamic therapy is often used to treat the depression that may be associated with infertility and/or medication.  In addition, Dr Cadow assists infertile couples in a number of decision-making processes, including choosing donor eggs. She can be an integral part of the support system necessary to navigate the possible uncertainty, fear, and disappointment in fertility treatment.
