Tewanda has been an amazing light in the relationship my daughter and I have, but more importantly, the way she sees herself. I knew we needed some help as she was isolating and feeling less confident as she became a young teenager. I wanted to normalize being open and vulnerable in a safe space, and wanted someone to help her love herself again. We found that and more with Tewanda. My daughter may not have always wanted to go into a session and share, but she always came out happier and energized, and within a few weeks began spending more time with us again, wanting to be part of the family dynamic. We now journal with each other (Tewanda has a mother daughter journal), have deeper connections, and a growing relationship. Some people just have a gift with teenagers, and are able to help them be heard, seen and understood. I highly recommend Tewanda. She is an amazing and very knowledgeable professional. And a good human being too! Trust the process!

I feel so much gratitude and respect for you as a person - thank you!! I know she is different and I know it is because you have handled her and your talks with your special teenage ninja skills. She responds so well to you, gives appropriate eye rolls when asked about your sessions, but she has been so much more INVOLVED with us and spending time and that is only after meeting with you. She feels seen and heard and I love that for her. THANK YOU. 

I truly feel you have done more than you know.

Tewanda, I am truly grateful for our meeting! Your authenticity, sincerity, passion, and transparency are exactly what Shelley's House youth need! You are the missing piece at Shelley's House.

Im honored to have been a part of a group home that had counselors like you. You were very patient, kind, understanding, fun, had a ray of sunshine while helping us find our path during difficult times. You made that place somewhere we didn't look down on anymore because we felt like we belonged and were heard. I want to wish you the absolute best because our youth need you and I can't think of a better person❤️❤️❤️.

Last but not least, there is my favorite southern belle, Ms. Tewanda. Ms. Tewanda is my case manager at LAYC. Since she has been working here, her face has always been the 1st I see whenever I am having problems at my school. She always comes there to have meetings & help solve problems with me. For some reason she never gives up on me. She is my main go to person, the one I can depend on when I need help with school. Whenever we get something accomplished she always says done deal. Because of her, I always feel like I have someone there to support me. Even if I fail she is always rooting for me.

I met Tewanda Shepherd last month and was so impressed with her background and methodology in helping teens and their parents that I had no problem giving her the Annapolis Moms Thumbs Up!

Tewanda and I co-facilitated  a series of peer health education workshops for Black and Latino high school students on the topics of sexual and reproductive health, emotional intelligence, social media literacy, and having uncomfortable conversations. Tewanda’s energy was the perfect mix of raw and nurturing, and she made our program participants feel at ease sharing openly in session. The quality of questions that Tewanda asked, paired with  her ability to hold space and create safety for our participants made my job so easy, and helped our participants build confidence in themselves and in their ability to teach others what they were learning. Tewanda's mentorship is an asset to any teen she serves.

Tewanda is a detail-oriented social work professional with a high level of cultural competency and knowledge of work with adolescents. I highly recommend her.
