Dr. C. Shanté Cofield


Greetings, friend!

So, this is the place where it’s standard practice to give you a sterile glimpse into my professional life and hopefully convince you that I’m qualified enough for you to let me treat you. But, you should know, I’m anything but traditional. Before you keep on reading, I’d love it if you could take a few moments to watch the video from the home page (if you haven’t already) and learn a little bit about me. I know that four minutes is a lot to ask of someone in 2018, but, that video IS me.

I’m a firm believer that everything in life is about connection. As it relates to our bodies, we are a united whole, with all the parts working together and affecting each other, and as such, that is how I treat. As it relates to the universe, we are all connected in some way, be it blood, physical proximity, belief systems, or energy. And as it relates to choosing a provider, choosing to listen to a podcast, or choosing to attend a course, I believe that it is paramount that you are able to connect with that person. As such, I teamed up with a close friend to film something that I felt would give you a better understanding of who I am, what I’m about, and hopefully make you realize that I am an actual person, not just a picture on a screen, a voice in your headphones, or words on a piece of paper.

So, if you’ve made it this far, I commend you.
