Carrie Breedlove MS, LPC, CRC

If you have found yourself on an unchosen journey, you aren't alone. I have been on an infertility journey since 2005.  I get what it's like to feel crushed by the waves of grief and I want you to know there is so much hope for you!  If you are reading this, consider this your message in a bottle, the thread of hope you have been looking for. 

Whether you are feeling trapped by anxiety, deep sadness, or feeling confused and frustrated about how you ended up here at this point in your life, there is a way forward. I have a hunch you feel stuck, maybe frozen in time, watching life pass you by. On the outside no one may be able to see it, but inside you have been fighting to hold on and hope feels like its slipping out of your fingers. 

I would love to hear your story!
