We are proud to offer several of our services through HIPPA compliant video software. This convenient service is easy to use and makes counseling with us accessible to any SC resident.
Reproductive Journey Counseling & Support was founded by Susannah Baldwin, a Licensed Professional Counselor and one of the first to hold a PSI certification in the state of South Carolina. Susannah works with and advocates for adults and couples navigating their reproductive journey, and is a recognized local expert in postpartum counseling with advanced training in maternal mental health.
Under her guidance and with PSI training, counselors Dr. Stefani Huey, Katherine Tarleton, Noelle Leopard, and Barry Martin conduct screenings, assessments, counseling, facilitate groups, yoga classes, and more.
This agency’s vision is to serve as a resource for anyone experiencing fertility challenges, pregnancy or postpartum depression, pregnancy or infant loss, traumatic childbirth or simply struggling to adjust to parenthood.
You are not alone.
