Mental Health in the Childless not by Choice Community, My interview with Psychologist Dr. Shari-ann James,

Hello everyone!

Thank you for visiting another episode of 21st Century Hannah! I appreciate your taking the time to listen in once again. And thank you to my repeat listeners. If you are listening for the first time, I hope you will come back for another visit!

Remember to tell your friends about the show, and feel free to share to your social media followers! I would appreciate that!

Well, it was such an honor to interview Dr. Shari-ann James for this episode! Her specialty within the world of psychology is just what we need in our community of childless not by choice women and men worldwide. I was so happy to hear this type of niche psychology is available and on the upswing. This will not be just another conversation on grief when a grieving woman walks into a psychologist’s office, it is the conversation.    

I hope you enjoyed the interview as much as I did, and I hope you will write in to let me know. I will be interviewing and mentioning Dr. James’ awesome practice in the future. But in the meantime, I hope you will take the time to seek her out if you are dealing with any of the issues we discussed.  

I have posted every way Dr. James can be found, as well as her education and memberships.  This is one smart lady! I really hope you all will take the opportunity to visit her website, and if you are local and find that you need assistance with traveling the path of childlessness, infertility issues, and loss, that you will seek her out.


PLEASE NOTE: There were some audio issues that I did not realize were happening until I went back to fully listen to the interview. My podcast producer corrected the issue as much as possible. And he has already had me implement some fixes so this does not happen in the future. I hope you will overlook the issue as the content is so compelling. There is great information in there for you, for us!

Thank you for your patience.
