Relationship Resilience When Navigating Fertility Issues and IVF, with Marissa Nelson
Marissa Nelson, CEO and Founder of Fertility Haven, is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT), Certified Sex Therapist (CST) and Certified Sexuality Educator (CSE). She is also a gifted public speaker who recently delivered her first TEDx talk.
Marissa has been a practicing therapist helping individuals and couples for the past decade. Her focus on reproductive mental health stems from her love of therapeutic work and her own experience with infertility and IVF. For four years prior to conception, she endured the pain and challenges of infertility, suffering in silence. She chose to transform hopelessness into empowerment by speaking on mental health panels at fertility conferences and creating reproductive mental health educational programs and content for leading fertility providers to support all couples during their fertility journey.
She is also a champion for equality, reproductive and social justice, particularly for communities of color where there continues to be challenges such as implicit bias in healthcare, treatment disparities and barriers of access to reproductive care.
Marissa is also well-known as the founder of IntimacyMoons, the premier luxury retreat experience voted “Best Couples Retreat” and featured in the New York Times, Vice News, Elle Canada, Fodor’s Travel Women’s Health, Bustle & Black Enterprise Magazines. She has been featured in over 150 media spots worldwide.
Marissa lives with her husband and daughter in Washington, D.C.
Whether you’re currently on or preparing for your own fertility journey, providing support to a loved one, this interview with Marissa Nelson will provide you with a wealth of knowledge and inspiration.
