Shawn Portner, LCSW


Do you have a postpartum secret? Is your life at home not adding up to all the wonderful pictures you see from your friends on social media? Have you ever wished you never became a mother or that you just aren’t cut out for this? For many, shame and guilt can make discussing these feelings incredibly difficult, even with those with whom we are closest like family members, friends, or our partner. This is where I come in. Regardless of your birth and feeding choices, birth experience and current feelings regarding motherhood, I approach every woman without judgment and recognize the inherent strength inside of you. I am passionate about the empowerment of women everywhere and conduct my treatment with compassion, empathy and nurturance. When you speak your truth, I listen and I will collaborate with you on ways to get you feeling better. You are deserving of a deep and rich experience with motherhood and peace from whatever struggles may be plaguing you now.
