Abortion Recovery

Find Your Counselor


Abortion isn’t an easy topic. Pro-choice/ pro-life / pro-birth – these are all polarizing positions that have the potential to distract from the deep emotional challenges of abortion.

50% of all pregnancies are unintended and 30% of women in the US will choose to have an abortion by age 45. Studies show that the predominant emotion following an abortion is relief (often accompanied by guilt, sadness, or grief). There are many people and factors involved in the decision-making process once a person discovers they are pregnant, and some of these factors can be complicated and overwhelming. Seeking a counselor during any moment of the process (from making a decision to the feelings after this decision is made) could help you process your experience. This is a vulnerable time, and no matter what, we are on your side!

Signs and Symptoms

  • questions of identity
  • religious concerns
  • access to resources
  • familial acceptance
  • emotional response (depression, anxiety, compulsions)

How does Lifeologie help?

Discuss your concerns with our intake specialists.

When you reach out to a Lifeologie, you’ll be connected with one of our Intake Specialists. In a “call center?” No way. Our specialists are each located in their local Lifeologie office and know the counselors well. Their entire job is to learn about you and what you’re looking for and to match you with the counselor who will be the very best fit for your needs and preferences.

Find a counselor that is passionate about helping you reach your mental health goals.

Our counselors are literally the cream of the crop. We get hundreds of applications every year to intern and work at our offices. Lifeologists are counselors, life coaches and overall wellness advocates who are experts and specialists in their craft. At the intern level, they have set themselves apart as incredible learners and collaborators, chasing after the highest-level trainings in the field. From EMDR to nutrition coaching to brain spotting and addiction specialists, we have you covered. Once you enter a Lifeologie office, you’ll find that we’ve carefully curated the environment to feel modern, comfortable and inviting. Counseling at Lifeologie is not your typical counseling experience – in any way.
