Shatiera Amankrah, LCSW, LICSW, PMH-C

Do you feel inadequate as a new mother? Are you experiencing infertility and feel like you’re suffering in silence? Wonder how you will manage pregnancy after loss?

Many women and couples experience anxiety and depression symptoms when trying to conceive, during pregnancy and the post-partum period. You don’t have to go through this alone. We can work together to develop healthy coping skills to help manage the emotions and pain you may be experiencing. I can help guide you through the healing and grief process.

I know from my own path to wellness that infertility and post-partum depression can leave you with a roller coaster of emotions. I specialize in helping women and couples like you manage the roller coaster of emotions and grief experienced during infertility, post-partum and traumatic birth experiences. I help couples improve communication during these difficult times.
