Meet Dr. Shanelle Fields, Founder of The Healing Group


In November 2018, Dr. Shanelle Fields completed her supervision to become an LPC and opened a private practice in Summerville and immediately began contributing to the mental health field.

In July 2021, Dr. Fields wrote a #1 Amazon Bestselling Book entitled “I Am Enough.” This book is a self-reflection and motivation for women and young ladies who are feeling undervalued and passed over. More recently, she became an International Bestseller for being a co-author of the book entitled “Women Motivated by Purpose.” This anthology seeks to motivate others to live life with purpose.


When Dr. Fields lost her mother in 2017, grief changed her life. She turned pain into purpose and ventured into her latest book endeavor which deals with the topic of loss. This anthology titled “Grief Matters: Authentic Perspectives of Life and Loss” is a #1 New Release and #2 Amazon Bestseller. Her latest project helps inform others about Living Well. She has courses available for purchase on Thinkrific that relate to everyday problems with solutions. She is The Solution Focused Therapist!

Dr. Fields is also an adjunct professor for Liberty University in their Community Counseling and School Counseling departments. She hones aspiring counselors’ skills through her love of God and experience.


Additionally, Dr. Fields founded The Healing Group, which is a directory of African American mental health professionals.  The aspiration for the group is to let others know that African American mental health professionals are present, open, and willing to assist in the path to healing.  Awareness, advocacy, and being present in the community will help this cohort reach their goal.
