Ever Upward

Justine Brooks Froelker is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator-Candidate (based on the research of Brené Brown) with a private practice in Saint Louis, Missouri. Due to medical reasons, Justine and her husband have survived two rounds of failed IVF with a gestational surrogate. She is the author of Ever Upward the blog and the soon to be published book of the same title, both about her journey through infertility but more so her recovery thereafter. Justine is also an infertility advocate for breaking the shamed silence of infertility and helping others fight for recovery when the treatments end, no matter the result.


a blog by Justine Froelker, June 4, 2014

As a mental health therapist who provides sacred safe space for other’s authentic courage and vulnerability I knew there was no way I could go through infertility treatments in secrecy like so many couples do. Every day, I encourage my clients to always live their truths out loud and to always own every single part of their story. I knew that I would not be honoring myself if I allowed the shamed silence of infertility to suffocate and silence me.
