Professional statement

Kim Weiss is a Clinical Psychologist in Ridgewood, New Jersey who specializes in fertility, challenging pregnancies, and post partum adjustment. Common issues in her work with clients include anxiety, depression, body image, isolation, dealing with friends and family, anger, frustration, jealousy, guilt, and feelings of helplessness. 

Dr. Weiss works with women, men, and couples. She teaches coping skills and strategies specific to fertility treatments, coping with loss, and coping with the major life transition to parenthood. Dr. Weiss listens carefully and takes a thorough history, resulting in an individualized plan for psychotherapy, which may include general support, teaching relaxation or mind/body techniques to manage stress, working with lifestyle behaviors such as diet and sleep, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to identify and change thoughts that may be making you feel worse. Dr. Weiss uses her training, experience and knowledge to help clarify your feelings about your options so that you can make good choices for yourself that are in line with your values. Dr. Weiss will provide information and education, as needed, about the emotional aspects of fertility so that you can be a good advocate for yourself in your medical care. 

Dr. Weiss enjoys helping clients begin to feel like themselves again as they face challenges building their families.
