SSA offers a mind/body approach to helping with the stress associated with infertility


PLEASE GO TO for further information

Although some data indicate that high levels of stress may prevent conception, it is more likely that the treatment and disappointment associated with infertility causes stress. Research shows that women suffering with infertility issues experience higher levels of anxiety and depression. Whatever the case, it is clear that a reduction in stress and tension is very beneficial to program participants.

The Wellness Concepts programs is based on the infertility program at Harvard's Mind/Body Medical Institute in Boston. Evening and morning classes are offered.


Kathy Stern, M.A., director and facilitator of the Houston classes is a Licensed Professional Counselor. Kathy holds certificates in training for Infertility, Menopause, Cancer, and Medical Symptom Reduction from Harvard's Mind/Body Medical Institute and is accredited through the International Association of Mind/Body Professionals.

She most recently lead groups at The Mind/Body Medical Institute at Southwest Memorial. Kathy offers a unique blend of personal and professional experience in the field of infertility. Kathy has been and is currently the director of Surrogacy Specialists of America, LLC and Parenting Options.
