Meet Our Behavioral, Gender Specialist
MA, LCMHCS, DCC, CRC
Shana has been working with the transgender community since 2008, is a WPATH GEI Certified gender specialist, and is a co-founder of a local non-profit that assists transgender people. Shana is well known for her LGBQTIA affirmative/ally advocacy and as a therapist; she is often invited to speak on transgender topics. As there is no legal definition of transitioned, what a patient wants is individually determined, and Shana enjoys helping transgender patients and their families get to where they want to go. This can include completing evaluations for those who want to start hormones and assisting those who are interested in gender affirmation surgery. There is no required therapy prior to having an evaluation; however, some patients prefer therapy before they start. Shana can assist patients with understanding the legal process required in North Carolina for name changes; she understands gender marker changes for social security and the passport agency and can sign off on gender marker changes for the DMV.

It is always so inspiring and reassuring when I find a group of clinicians and staff that are clearly dedicated to their clients….Kalos is that kind of practice! Working with them professionally, it is clear they truly care and go the extra mile to help their clients get the support they need. -Michelle
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Shaw’s for over a year now and can honestly say this is the best care I think a trans person can find anywhere near here. Dr. Shaw knows more than any doctor I’ve met about hormone replacement therapy, and just as importantly, she takes the time to listen and trusts that her patients know what they’re talking about when they express concerns. The office is fantastic to follow up on labs and discuss care options. They offer mental health services as well as medical, and understand how important it is to be informed by both when working with a patient. I’ve never felt belittled, patronized, or talked down to here, and they go out of their way to provide excellent care to all of their patients. She seems to know all of her patients individually and I can tell how important it is to her to tailor treatments to the specific goals and needs of her patients. I cannot recommend this place enough for anyone in the LGBTQIA+ community.
