“Breathtaking is how I would characterize
Dr. Ricks' presentation. From the beginning to the end she exemplified high energy and audience engagement. This was my first time collaborating with Dr. Ricks but it surely will not be my last! She is awesome!”

I would love to share this message in a group session. I love addressing groups, whether it is in a keynote setting or as a training. It allows me to spread messages of self-awareness through increased communication skills, understanding of the dynamics of diversity and basic counseling skills. I love what I do and it shows. Please read my testimonials and reach out to me if you'd like to discuss how I can help increase productivity by enhancing group dynamics.
"Dr. Ricks presented a continuing education workshop, “Psychological Tight Spaces: African American Women and Mental Health,” to the NC State University Counseling Center recently.
I must say that Dr. Ricks is by far one of the very best presenters that we have had here, and that is for the last 13 years since we have been providing CE's. Dr. Ricks has a rare ability to share knowledge in a way that keeps the participants actively engaged and wanting her to come back.

I have been so impressed with the trainings provided by Shawn Ricks. When working with our staff on Cultural Diversity Dr. Ricks handles the topic in a way that is interesting and helps staff understand the topic better. I have only received positive comments concerning her trainings and that says a lot when you have 100 staff.
She is a dynamic speaker. Her presentation style is fun, energetic and uplifting and leaves those who attend feeling inspired to try new things or see things from a different perspective.
What Others Say...
All of my life I have struggled with not fitting in. Too tall. Too light. Too big. Those experiences, as well as an unplanned pregnancy in college, shaped me into who I am today. I recognize and connect with the pain and suffering others may be going through and I am learning how to claim peace in the midst of it all. I have been formally educated, but the best education has come from my lived experiences. Let me share what I have learned/am learning with you. You are worthy, loved and lovable. I believe in you. Do you???
