Dr. Emily Guarnotta is a licensed clinical psychologist and Certified Perinatal Mental Health Provider (PMH-C) in New York state. She specializes in working with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, like postpartum depression and anxiety. She also works with individuals of all backgrounds dealing with anxiety, depression, and life adjustments.

In addition to helping mothers trying to cope with infertility, miscarriage, pregnancy, and the postpartum period, Dr. Guarnotta also works to help fathers, adopted parents, and LGBTQ families. You do not have to be a birthing mother to struggle with emotions related to trying to build a family or adjusting to a new baby.  

Dr. Guarnotta takes an integrative approach to psychotherapy, meaning that she draws from different types of therapy to help meet the needs of her clients, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic therapy. She believes that each person that comes to therapy is unique and treatment should be tailored to the individual.

Currently, Dr. Guarnotta balances her time providing psychotherapy to her clients and writing about various mental health issues. She hopes to increase mental health awareness, decrease stigma, and help make information on mental health more accessible.
