Karin Feldman LMHC, CCBT, NCC
Maternal & Reproductive Mental Health Specialist
Welcome to My Practice,
I am a New York State Licensed Psychotherapist and Certified Cognitive Behavioral therapist, with extensive experience working with individuals, couples and groups.
Specializing in the treatment of Infertility, Perinatal and Postpartum mental health, I work with women and couples who require the unique expertise of a specialist in the treatment and support of these.
My areas of expertise include:
High Risk Pregnancy
Transitions to parenthood
Neonatal Infant parenting
I provide emotional support, guidance and counseling to women and couples in different stages of their family building process. In our work together, individuals and couples recognize and utilize their intrinsic resources: emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual, to overcome infertility, heal from pregnancy loss, stabilize postpartum issues and realize their dream of becoming a parent.
Once the actualization of parenthood is attained, I also work with individuals and couples to process and cope with adjusting to their new roles, the changing dynamic in their relationship, and the unique issues associated with new life as a parent.
For women navigating the challenges of infertility, processing the trauma of a pregnancy loss, or coping with postpartum symptoms, I facilitate weekly support groups in a confidential and healing space. Furthermore, I offer support groups for parents who due to pregnancy complications or premature birth, have a newborn infant receiving care in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
I am a member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association as well as the National Association of Cognitive Behavioral Therapists. I hold Professional membership with RESOLVE- the National Infertility Association, The American Society of Reproductive Medicine and PSI- Postpartum Support International. I am a board certified National mental health counselor specializing in reproductive and maternal mental health.
My New York based, Positive Fertility Practice, is a place where support, empowerment and hope are attained and realized.
