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.

GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE:
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
