My name is Minerva M. King, LCSW, and I am a Survivor. Over a decade after earning my master’s degree with honors from Florida Atlantic University I specialize in therapies which include Rapid Trauma Resolution/Hypnosis, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Victims Services, and Certified Sex Offender Treatment, among others. I am also a Qualified Clinical Supervisor securing competency, knowledge and skill in the next generation of Social Workers. All endeavors dedicated toward the improvement of mental health wellness for a better quality of life for all who are ready to realize their potential.
For almost 15 years, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, I serviced individuals and families, face to face in agency and individual private practice settings. Confident that I could make a greater difference in assisting survivors of the pandemic, I transitioned my delivery of services into an E-Counseling practice. My hope is to offer an extended reach of accessible, affordable, and accountable therapeutic services, while respecting your safety and circumstances during this time of crisis.
If you are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, grief and loss (of any type), substance use and/or abuse or trauma, ect..., and are ready for real change, this is an opportunity to rewrite your experience and explore effective options toward a new normal and extraordinary life.
Throughout my practice I’ve had the privilege of serving 1000’s of clients, and many of their families. The most rewarding outcomes in treatment began with negative narratives transitioning into the impressive development of emotional intelligence, hence allowing for newly forged positive story lines. In working with you, I utilize a strength-based approach focused on empowering mind, body and spirit. A commitment that I myself made many years ago in my journey toward healing and happiness. Change can only take place when awareness is achieved. Awareness is the key to improving understanding to self; improving relationship with others; increasing management of thoughts, emotions and behavior.
During our time together I will encourage you to engage in exercises related to the many tools and techniques discovered during our sessions. All resources I provide you are specific to your goals. All information discussed during our sessions will be private and confidential unless there is reason to believe that you, a child, elderly or others may be at risk of being harmed. You will be sharing as much or as little sensitive and intimate information with me, your therapist. throughout our sessions. Initially you may not be used to sharing your most private and intimate details with someone not personally familiar to you. It is not my role as a clinician to make judgments, give advice or force solutions. Rather the therapist’s role is to help you find the best course of action taking into consideration your beliefs, culture, lifestyle, value and revealed circumstances. In therapy the focus is always on you. You may find yourself enjoying the therapeutic time that is solely devoted to you.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Family conflicts, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, ADHD, Abandonment, Antisocial Personality, Attachment Issues, Codependency, Communication Problems, Coping with Natural or Human-Caused Disaster
Clinical approaches: Attachment-Based Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy
