Family Planning

You have the ability to guide your family planning with your partner.
You can make the right decisions for you and your family. And we will help you feel confident as you do!

In all the uncertainty, here is what you know: You want to decide what your family will look like with your partner. You want to be open with them in talking about birth control options. And you want to be prepared for pregnancy if it should happen, and not be blindsided. 

But these things are all easier said than done. How do you even start those conversations? What are your options, and best solutions?

 

What is family planning?

The purpose of family planning is to give you the tools to make informed decisions.

Specifically: when, if, and how you would like to go about having children. These tools involve both counseling and birth control.

Maybe you are trying to avoid pregnancy, even if it’s just for the time being. Maybe you are trying to get pregnant, but having fertility issues. Maybe you are deciding whether you want to adopt, and are not sure where to start. Family planning calls for these important conversations. We are here to help guide those discussions. We want to set you on the best path for you and your partner, taking into account your personal circumstances.

Types of family planning

These options are all worth giving plenty of thought and having honest discussions between you and your partner.

It is a difficult series of decisions to make. But we will guide you through the whole process!

We will keep in mind all aspects of these very personal decisions. There are so many circumstances at play: age, culture, and socioeconomics, just to name a few. We are here to support you in all of these. We will provide a safe space to discuss what you and your partner want for your life together as a family.

Here’s what to expect when you work with us:

Free Phone Consult:

At Bricolage, we extend a free 15-minute phone consultation to make sure we are a good fit to work together. We will discuss what your goals are, explain what therapy will look like, and how your life will be different after working with us. By the end of this call, you will have
a clear idea of your next steps.

Initial Session:

Your first meeting with your therapist will be between 60 and 70 minutes and will allow the two of you to begin to build a relationship.
You will go over the information you provided before this initial session as well as dive into all of the elements of your story. Throughout
this appointment, you and your therapist will work as a team to create your action plan.

Weekly Sessions:

Once you and your therapist begin to work deeply together, you will experience a type of treatment that has been completely tailored
to you and your needs. Your therapist will take keen notice of where you are in your wellness journey and ensure that the exercises you complete in session will bring you a sense of comfort and peace as you move forward.

Completion of Goals

As a team, you and your therapist will continue to evaluate your progress and growth. Eventually, the two of you will recognize that you
are responding to stressors more effectively and that weekly therapy might no longer be necessary. At this point you can choose to come to session less often and together you will decide what level of support you need for the future.

Our team of compassionate professionals will help you tap into the strengths you already possess and guide you to stop looking for the “if” and start taking advantage of the NOW.
