Our clients come to us because they are navigating the challenges of family building. If you feel no one understands the isolation and sense of despair of yearning for a child, we are here to help. Our treatment program, called RE-MAP, is designed to help you survive, even thrive, and increase your chances of creating the family you've been dreaming of. Curated from the best of Eastern and Western approaches, our multifaceted program includes skills and practices with scientific evidence to improve your chance of conceiving and to support you physically and emotionally on your journey.
We understand. When you are on the fertility journey, the tendency is to live cycle to cycle, riding the rollercoaster of hope and disappointment. Well-intentioned friends and family tell you, "Relax! It will happen when you least expect it." Meanwhile, you are gritting your teeth and trying to figure out how to avoid the next baby shower because you can't face another person asking when you are planning to start your family. Living through infertility can be isolating, exhausting, and downright demoralizing. You've come to the right place.

How Can We help?
Our clients come to us at different stages along the journey to family building and with different questions:;
What happens if I never get pregnant? Should we consider IVF? Donor eggs? How do I manage my feelings of jealousy? How do I maintain the strength stay in treatment? How do I know when it’s time to consider adoption?
You may be undergoing fertility treatments such (e.g., IUI, IVF) or exploring alternative family building options, including third party reproduction, surrogacy, adoption, or single parenthood.
We are here to make sense of the emotional issues and questions that arise on the infertility journey.
We are Dr. Ciara Byrne and Dr. Laura McKee. Clinical Psychologists. Mind-Body medicine teachers, researchers, and professors. Passionate about reproductive health and helping you grow your family.
We not only bring the clinical expertise of doctoral level psychologists to our programs, but also the compassion and understanding that results from having experienced infertility. Knowing first hand how demoralizing and sometimes dehumanizing the path to becoming a parent can be, we were driven to create a program that we would have wanted ourselves that is, a program that has scientific support in directly improving pregnancy rates and emotional and physical well being, and a deep sensitivity toward the individual human story behind each infertility journey.
