Shanene grew up in Riverside County and spent 9 years working at a residential treatment facility for abused children as a Childcare worker. She spent the next 15 years working as a Special Educational Teacher’s Assistant working with moderate to severe children until she enrolled at California Baptist University, where she obtained her master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. Shanene graduated in 2019 with a 3.9 GPA.
“Having grown up in an unstable home environment, as well as having been subject to abuse at a young age, this has led me to a field where my heart’s desire is to help others not only to know that they can heal but also for them to truly find their value and worth. I truly believe that no matter what a person has endured, there’s healing and restoration.”
Shanene believes one key to healing is by involving all aspects of a person’s being, emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual. “When a person involves all aspects of their being, they truly become more accepting of themselves, and healing and growth happens.”
Shanene is a proud mom of three grown children, and 7 grandchildren and currently working on her hours to become a licensed therapist, which she is hoping to obtain in 2022.
