As the Founder and CEO of Bryman Counseling Associates, Andrea Bryman has more than 25 years of clinical experience working in the field of assisted reproduction.
Andrea’s focus on assisted reproduction stemmed from her own personal experience with infertility. It is her early professional position as Clinical Intake Director of an inpatient psychiatric facility and her personal experience that laid the foundation for her to skillfully assess prospective egg donors and carriers. It has also provided her with the compassion to support and guide individuals pursuing family building through assisted reproduction.
It is through her professional reputation that her business has grown internationally. She now oversees a team of licensed clinicians who continue to provide the same level of expertise by setting a uniformed and consistent standard of care throughout the fertility industry. Andrea has developed a proprietary assessment method that allows her to remain objective while still making her clients feel safe and reassured.
She received her Masters in Marriage, Family, and Child Counseling from the University of Southern California and is licensed by the California Board of Behavioral Science Examiners (MFC#33036).
Andrea has continued her professional growth in the field of infertility through research and involvement as a professional member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, Society for Ethics In Egg Donation and Surrogacy, the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, Resolve, and the American Bar Association. Andrea was the past Mental Health Committee Chairperson of SEEDS, past Psychological Chairperson on the Board of Directors for the Egg Donation and Surrogacy Professional Association, a Mental Health Advisor to Parents Via Egg Donation, and was on the Board of Directors for Fertile Action.
