Sheri Hovdestad




I specialize in all aspects of reproductive mental health, including pregnancy, perinatal mood & anxiety disorders, perinatal loss, birth trauma, infertility and third party reproduction.

I got my qualifications and did my training at...

Master of Arts in Counseling and Advanced Certificate in Counseling - Montclair State University; Certification in Perinatal Mental Health through Postpartum Support International. Member of the Mental Health Professionals Group of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).

My approach is...

I strongly believe that being able to share one's story, and feel truly heard, is the most powerful part of the therapy process.

I work in fertility because...

The journey to parenthood can take many different paths. Often that path looks and feels nothing like the pregnancy test and diaper commercials that promise rainbows, unicorns, and happy endings. You do not need to navigate the journey alone!

I'm interested in helping women undergoing egg freezing because...

I understand the expectations and demands women often place on themselves on the journey to motherhood. I want to help you navigate the journey of egg freezing in a way that allows for you to be open and honest in your expectations and experiences. To say the things you dare not say out loud because "if others knew what I was thinking..."

I use the following techniques...

Psychodynamic Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Other things I specialize in are...

Anxiety, Depression, Grief or Loss, Stress, Women's Issues

I believe optimizing lifestyle and accessing emotional support are important during fertility treatment because...

I work with women towards the goal of feeling fully informed and empowered in their decision-making process, which can often include mourning the loss of dreams and expectations around family building.

My interests outside of work are...

Reading, yoga, cooking

Something you might not expect about me is that...

I love all things Star Wars!

I offer treatment in the following formats...

In person and video sessions available

My patients can expect this type of schedule from me during treatment...

I offer weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly sessions depending on your personal needs! I encourage clients to reach out to me in between sessions if I can be of additional support.
