Shavonne James, LCSW is a licensed psychotherapist, as well as the Founder and Director of Paper Cranes Counseling. As a licensed psychotherapist, her passion is working with individuals experiencing issues of identity, multicultural experiences, difficult life transitions, and improving intrapersonal/interpersonal effectiveness.
She is a Southern California native, an unapologetic feminist, as well as a lover of travel, music, adventure, and tea! She has a natural passion for the complexity of claiming identity and navigating multicultural experiences. She loves working with individuals on not feeling like they have to place themselves in a box (whether racial, sexual, cultural, spiritual, etc.) and finding out who they are as an individual. Her belief is that a journey of self-discovery, beginning with insecurity, can end with acceptance of self.
