About Me

Dr. Deauna Shauri-Webb works as a licensed clinical psychologist with our nation's veterans. She conducts individual and group psychotherapy with veterans who are experiencing a wide-range of clinical disorders and provides evidence-based interventions for veterans diagnosed with PTSD. She holds the position of LGBT Veteran Care Coordinator for the hospital where she serves as a point-of-contact for LGBT veterans as well as a training resource for providers.  Her clinical interests include working with trauma, PTSD, anxiety disorders, HIV+ clients, multiculturalism, and individuals presenting with an LGBTQ focus.


Dr. Shauri-Webb developed and  supervises the Diversity Rotation for the APA accredited predoctoral internship and postdoctoral fellowship that involves teaching trainees to put diversity theory into practice. She recognized that most students have had diversity classes but rarely had an opportunity to practice these skills in "the real world" and with actual patients. She developed the rotation as a result of noticing the gap in training. In the past, she co-facilitated the Diversity Seminar for the psychology interns and provided assessment supervision. 

In addition to her work within the VA, Dr. Shauri-Webb is a fellow within the Georgia Psychological Association and serves as the chair of the Gender and Sexual Diversity Committee. She is an active member of the Board of Directors and previously chaired the Racial and Ethnic Minority Affairs Committee. She was selected to represent GPA as a 2019 Diversity Delegate at the Practice Leadership Conference in Washington, DC. Dr. Shauri-Webb engages in diversity consulting work in which she helps businesses to attain competence in providing culturally aware and inclusive services to their clients. Dr. Shauri-Webb also conducts speaking engagements on topics related to diversity, PTSD and trauma, child development, and school bullying at various college campuses, professional conferences, and training programs.
