Shawana is Oakland born, an avid gardener, and fuels her approach to healing and liberation. She comes to Trauma Transformed with a rich background in serving systems-involved young people and their families through her experience in program oversight, clinical supervision, child crisis work, and individual and family therapy services in various settings. She also brings her infectious laugh, love and boundless joy as critical competencies of healing.
What brings Shawana joy? Laughter, eating healthy, hiking with her doggies, her own community garden (Evie’s garden), watching Christmas movies--even though she doesn't celebrate, time with friends and family, and international travel.
