Shawna Lauer, LMFT

Are you a woman or mother struggling with anxiety? I want to let you know you are not alone. I am here to help you feel like yourself again. 

Postpartum Counseling in Charlotte NC

I understand whole-heartedly the challenges that women face when dealing with infertility, pregnancy, grief/loss, trauma, the transition to parenthood, adjusting to a new roles, relationship changes and struggles, major career decisions, and parenting young children.

As women we usually attempt to meet the needs of other's before our own. You may be experiencing anxiety and depression due to this. Just like when we are on a flight, we must apply our oxygen mask before we help others. In therapy I will help you take care of yourself so you can take be there for your family and friends. 

I am a highly trained mental health professional with over 15 years experience providing group, individual and family psychotherapy. I’ve dedicated my career to helping families thrive, grow and heal. As professional, and also as a mother I am here to help you through this challenging time. I will provide you with a comfortable safe space to share your feelings. We will work together to help you feel like yourself again. 


I have specialty training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. I’ve been a licensed Marriage and Family therapist since 2005. My experience and training includes evidence-based treatments and culturally-informed care. My practice is sexuality and gender inclusive.
