growforth family building

for professionals

welcome 

I'm Kenzi, a family building coach and licensed clinical social worker with over ten years of experience. I'm passionate about supporting individuals and couples as they navigate the challenges that come from growing their families through fertility treatments, donor gametes, surrogacy, and adoption - as well as supporting and educating the professionals who serve them.

I connect with audiences on a personal level while maintaining a professional demeanor. I am committed to providing a customized and engaging experience that meets the specific needs of your audience or organization - whether it's a small and intimate group,  workshop, informational panel, or large conference.
