Shaneisha Wofford is pursuing her PhD in Clinical Psychology from Saybrook University.
A law school graduate, Shaneisha focused on issues such as homeless prevention and domestic violence. A passion for advocating the needs in marginalized and underrepresented communities, she found it necessary to combine her current educational background with that of a background in mental health to best serve her community.
Shaneisha's experience includes working with inmates through the AmeriCorps program as a Volunteer Correctional Counselor, as well as her most recent position as a CBT Facilitator and Caseworker for adults on parole. In both positions, she used Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing to not only encourage behavioral and lifestyle changes in those she worked with, but also, to address the needs of her clients, providing them a holistic experience in reentering the community.
Shaneisha uses her education and experiences to foster, encourage, and empower healing; especially with regard to unaddressed trauma.
In her free time, Shaneisha enjoys researching and learning.
