Dr. Nicole Young is a clinical psychologist who founded Infertility Support of Glenside in PA. As an experienced specialist who has been through infertility personally, she believes that infertility does not have to define you. She understands that you may be fed up with feeling like your body is failing you, and with being sad, irritable, and worried all the time. You're ready to be able to hear a pregnancy announcement without completely falling apart, to have fun with your partner again, and to be able to see your friends with kids again. Dr. Young follows clients from treatment into pregnancy, postpartum, and adjustment to parenthood, and also helps with the difficult decision of when to stop treatment. She also treats couples, for a wide variety of issues, using the Gottman method.
Prior to founding Infertility Support of Glenside, Dr. Young worked in college counseling for five years. She enjoys working with teens and twentysomethings, because emerging adulthood is such a critical time in a person’s life. Before that, she commissioned into the United States Air Force as a psychologist and served as a Captain for four years. She worked with active duty service members, veterans, and their families, and has a history of treating military and sexual trauma, along with readjustment to civilian life.
Dr. Young uses Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in many of her sessions, because it teaches clients how to hold painful emotions while still living a meaningful, value-driven life, which is highly relevant to the lives of those going through infertility treatment (as well as many others!). She uses other modalities when relevant, and would be happy to discuss this with you in more detail if desired.
