When you are an African-American woman, the rules are different. You face a starkly disparate reality than your non-black counterparts.

About the Author:
Since founding African American Marriage Counseling in 2003, over 2,000 couples have sat down on his black-tufted couch to fight for their relationships, marriages, and families. Dr. Shane rolled up his sleeves and got in the trenches with them to help them begin to develop the skills needed to hear (and be heard by) each other and to turn toward (instead of on) each other in times of conflict. These breakthroughs empowered couples to make peace with the past and move past the pain.
Throughout these experiences, countless couples have discovered, “it’s never too late to live happily ever after.”
A highly sought-after speaker and tv guest who’s frequently invited back, Dr. Shane successfully blends humor, insight, empathy and “ah-ha” moments in a way that entertains and engages audiences. He earned his doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The Ohio State University, and completed his undergraduate studies at Southern University in Baton Rouge, LA.
