Why the postpartum period is important to us:

All therapists at Amanda Atkins Counseling have received training in treating pregnancy and postpartum issues. Not only are we all passionate about moms, we just so happen to all be moms and know first hand how difficult motherhood can be. 1 in 7 moms suffer from postpartum depression as well as 1 in 10 dads. Postpartum depression and anxiety is highly treatable by therapy and there is no need to suffer alone.
