The online sacred coursework for sistas who seek to re-ignite self-love, desire genuine connection and are committed to creating a lifestyle that heals themselves, their families and their future generations.

Don’t You Wanna’…

Develop the mindset to show up as the BEST YOU everywhere you go? (ABSOLUTELY!!!!!)


Build sistahood with top-notch women who reciprocate the love you give? (Girl… YES!)


Create the authentic, worry-free, abundant lifestyle so you can finally fulfill your life purpose? (Sign Me Up, Sis!)

To get there you need to:

Stop wearing the fake “I got it all together” face


Get crystal clear about the fact that healing takes work, snot, ugly cries and yes… VILLAGE. You simply cannot go this alone.


Put your big girl pants on (you’ve gotten this far) and accept that you CAN manifest a more vibrant life for yourself.

Sis, I know this is easier said than done… I get it, trust me…

You’ve tried therapy and stuck to it… but it’s time to apply the skills learned


You called on your family, your boo-thang and your so-called sistas… and they just didn’t understand


And you’re tired of spending money on women’s wellness conferences, retreats and ‘feel-good-moments’ that leave you excited for like 5 days… then it all wears off

Evolve is perfect for you if you’re:

Ready to let go of all the negative self-talk thats keeping you from achieving your BIG goals


Juggling a unique schedule and could use some “me time,” sistahood and accountability on your own terms


Trying to come out of your protective shell after overcoming some really tough stuff


Serious about finding peace of mind in the wake of #BlackLivesMatter, #SayHerName and other overwhelming narratives


Tried to meditate and well… uh… you’re still trying to master the whole “Keep Calm” idea ‘cuz it’s a struggle


LCSW-C a Life Coach, Integrative Psychotherapist, QiGong and Mind-Body Medicine Practitioner.

I guide women like you… Women who may have dealt with some serious pain and hurt in the past, stay on the path to healing. I only work with folks who are willing to make the changes and take the steps necessary to begin again and create a better life for themselves and the future of their bloodline. I created a signature online experience, EVOLVE: Sacred Self-Work to #HealASista. I also have a virtual support group, The #HealASista Project: Sista Space for people who are ready to show up, stay the course and change their whole…entire life!

I was in college when the childhood pain I stuffed in my heart began to erupt. I knew I was in serious need of some healing. I had some forgiving to do. I had some moving on to do. I had some letting go to do.

I tried visiting the on-campus psychologist. I gave it my best shot. But every time I found myself sitting in that office talking to those people who clearly had ZERO vested interest in my wellbeing, I just felt lost all over again. That was when I started exploring alternative forms of healing. Sitting in meditation and prayer, using crystals and herbs, exploring energy work, manifesting love and dreams, journaling with tears (and snot), among many other practices combined with (AWESOME) therapy, I was able to finally get to a true place of healing.

After college, when I became a social worker and community therapist, I noticed the scarcity of safe space for teen girls of color.There weren’t holistic spaces for them to express themselves, engage healthily with their peers, develop skills for womanhood and learn about Black History; so I created it. Then, I learned about the importance of making holistic healing accessible to the entire family and began studying family patterns of trauma.

And still… I continued my own healing work.

Once I connected each girls struggle to her mother’s pain, I knew I had to create a Movement that spoke to the needs of the Resilient Woman.

So I got to work and I…

Sat with my sistahood


Completed a year-long Matriarchal African-Centered Women’s Rites of Passage Program


Earned my Clinical Social Work License


Earned my Level 1 QiGong Instructor Certification


Completed an Advanced Level Training in Mind-Body Medicine


Studied Christian, Buddhist and African Spiritual Healing Traditions


Sat at the feet of my Elders and Veteran Healers around the country


Launched The #HealASista Project as a series of Mini-Retreats


Got Quiet and Listened to my Intuition (A LOT)

And after all of that, I saw all the women I supported begin their evolution…

Each time was a mini-retreat, every sista in the sacred space experienced powerful breakthroughs…they all told me we needed more. I travelled to a small village in Costa Rica, and hosted a mini-retreat with the beautiful local mamas. One mama, after sitting in the circle said, “I feel like 10 thousand horses have been lifted from my back.” They told me to promise I would return… Then it was clear… all over the world, Sistas desired something to help them do MORE self-work.

Evolve is an online sacred coursework like no other!

I show you the foundation of self-healing and how to apply new skills to your daily life. I take you through the process, asking the right questions to get you to your breakthrough. I partner with Movement Experts in Afrobeat, Belly Dance, Yoga and Fitness so you can release what doesn’t serve you, physically. After working with me, sistas have said they could feel the weight of pain, leaving their bodies.

Sistas I work with currently and in the Past Have:

Manifested the love of their life and gotten married


Built the confidence to return to college and finish their degree


Forgiven family members for a lifetime of wrongdoing


Built healthy communication patterns in their love relationship


Taught their children how to chill


Launched their purpose-driven business after overcoming debilitating fear

This program is for you if…

You’re tired of taking care of everyone else before yourself, are trying to undo years of internalized messages of inferiority and you refuse to hold your tongue about the truth of what it means to be a woman of color in this age because… the babies.


I Keep it Real

Girl… I will tell you the damb truth! With love, though. Throughout each Module you will find that I address what healing means for those of us with Melanin on fleek. I am a professional, and I am me. If I can see that you aren’t showing up for yourself, I will tell you. If I can see that it might be time to go back to therapy, I will support you. We deserve this. We need truth tellers and lovers.

I Address the Whole You

This coursework is designed to take you on a journey through all that makes us human. We dance, write, journal, meditate and create safe space. From how beautiful you feel, how often you’re experiencing pleasure, to the issue you have with your mama, and what kind man you’re attracting…We go in.

I’m Here for All of It!

From our Members-only circle, to the Q+A calls and the emails you send, I show up for you in the space the best way I can.

I am Rooted in Sacred Sisterhood

I am not an expert in everything, this is why I called on Expert Sista Healers! I NEED my sistas. TOGETHER we are experts in EVERYTHING! Healing does not end here… most times we need to invest in taking action offline and with another sista. I function from a Village Mentality.

Imagine for a moment, insight from Expert Sista Healers, addressing the BIG questions you’ve had about life so you don’t have to Google search the answer when its time to go deeper.


Imagine knowing you had the power to heal yourself, with the right guidance and support, and without worrying if they have your best interest at heart.

What they say

“[Shawna] gave me and my daughter’s tools to use in order to get through the tough space… One of the things I used to do was just push things down, push it away. I didn’t really deal. I didn’t want feel… I didn’t want to deal… I didn’t want to face it… I didn’t want to be vulnerable. But, to [work] with her and be allowed the opportunity to be vulnerable and just to express whatever I was feeling at that time… things that I couldn’t share with anybody else… It was just so freeing and so liberating. I truly feel like she went with the spirit of God and facilitated healing… and allowed the space for me to heal myself…

I hope any ladies out there that are in a place when they are ready to heal, ready to do something, please look her up. Please get in contact with her. You will not be sorry. ”

Topics are addressed from a lens of healing as resistance and seeks to honor the evolving culture of the Diaspora. We are nurturing an active, nurturing sistahood, and actually let go and grow in our work monthly. We will even highlight our members monthly, it’s called ‘Evolving Sista Spotlight’.

How did you decide on the topics for each course?

You’re on a roll! We paid close attention to the requests and concerns that sistas shared in The #HealASista Project Mini-retreats and on the FB group.

I suck a meditation. Will this work for me?

Absolutely. The guided meditation audios and meditation guide, as well as the sista support can support you in gaining greater confidence and centeredness in that area. Remember, its a practice.

Is this the support you need?

I’ve been where you’re standing and I know the power of Taking the Leap. I spent YEARS yearning for relief. I invested over 100k in degrees, certifications, trainings and my own personal healing to get to where I am. Why go through all of that? Who has that kind of time? NOBODY!
