Women’s Psychological Services was founded by Dr. Kristy Money–the Fertility Shrink–as a safe space for women. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Brigham Young University, and in 2010-2011 I was a Post-Doctoral Fellow for Clinical and Support Options, a community mental health center and network of clinics in the serene Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts. My dissertation focused on suicide prevention within marginalized groups, my honors thesis on Jungian applications to group psychotherapy for women. My emphasis in study and clinical work is centered in women’s issues. I want to provide resources, reflection, and hope for women going through a diversity of life issues, from infertility, loss, anxiety during pregnancy, coping with trauma, depression, finding meaning, career/individual/family balancing, sexuality, body image, transition to parenthood, and relationships.
