Infertility and trying to conceive 

Dr. Gupta has worked with adults struggling to conceive a child -  their experiences range from trying for many months, using ART methods including IUI and IVF, and conceiving with the help of donor eggs or a gestational surrogate. 

The process can contribute to anxiety, sadness, jealousy and feeling simultaneously hopeless and hopeful. Common challenges include difficulties watching friends/family have children, feeling no control over the future, miscarriage, failed treatments, and fears of life without a child.

Cognitive behavior therapy offers both support and a way to learn concrete skills to manage the strong emotions associated with infertility and trying to conceive. 

A member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and a psychologist whose work is grounded in research, Dr. Gupta offers therapy that combines traditional support with techniques informed by empirical studies.
