It is never too late to live happily ever after.

Whether you are single, divorced, or widowed, and looking for Mr. Right, when you are an African American woman, the rules are different! You face a starkly different reality thank your non-black counterparts. Nevertheless, Dr. Shane Perrault, Ph.D., has learned, “It is never too late to live happily ever after.”

He founded African American Marriage Counseling in 2004. In his private practice, he has partnered with over 5,100 couples to develop the skills to begin to hear (and be heard by) each other so they can make peace with the past and move past the pain, and learn to turn towards instead of on each other to overcome life’s challenges and strengthen their families.

Dr. Shane received his doctorate in clinical psychology from the Ohio State University and completed his undergraduate studies at Southern University in Baton Rouge, LA. He has also completed Level I, II, and III training in the world-renowned Gottman Marital Therapy Training Institute.

He is regularly invited to speak at church retreats, has spoken at the Congressional BlackCaucus, blogs for Psychology Today, and is a media favorite featured in Ebony and Essence magazines, the Washington Post and Washington Times, on XMradio, BET, and TV One. Dr. Shane has also appeared as a guest expert in movies, including “You Saved Me,” a documentary about marriage in the Black community.

Finally, Dr. Shane is committed to helping you, and your partner live your happily ever after.

To Your Success,

Dr. Shane
