With my support, I hope to help find your rainbow through the rain.
Hello, my name is Kellie Stryker and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in fertility, infertility, pregnancy, grief and loss.
I earned my Masters of Social Work degree in 2013 from Loyola University of Chicago. I have over 10 years of experience which includes medical social work, case management, mental health, adoption, grief support, fertility and infertility.
My own personal experience with infertility led me to open my own practice. After four years of infertility treatments which included multiple losses, I realized how isolating infertility can be. Infertility is often considered "taboo" and not talked about openly. The lack of emotional support during one of the most challenging times in an individual's life baffled me. It was then that I decided I needed to use my background to help others.
Whether it be attempting to conceive a child, adoption or overcoming a loss, my focus will be to help you establish a positive mindset in regards to any challenges you may encounter.
