Minerva King

(LCSW)

About Me

My name is Minerva M. King, LCSW, and I myself 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 also 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 your teenager is experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, grief and loss (of any type), substance use/abuse, trauma, exhibiting unwanted behaviors and is ready for real change, this is an opportunity to rewrite your shared negative experiences 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 and your child, I will 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 your teenager to engage in exercises implementing the many tools and techniques discovered during our sessions. All resources I provide are specific to the member's goals. All information discussed during our sessions will be private and confidential unless there is reason to believe that a child, elderly, your teen or others may be at risk of being harmed. 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 teenager's beliefs, culture, lifestyle, value and revealed circumstances. In therapy the focus is always on the member. You may find that your teenager enjoys the therapeutic process.

Minnie is an angel! In just over a month she's already helped me a lot on how to deal with anxiety and on what to do about the things that cause it! Minnie's always in a great mood and clearly enjoys learning about her patients. Highly recommend her!

Highly recommend. Minnie listens with empathy, kindness and warmth and have helped me with anxiety and grief. It is evident that she has extensive experience and capacity to help individuals. She has helped me process old and new emotions, and offered me practical tools that made a big difference for me in a short time.

Minnie is amazing. She has been so open and receptive to what I have been saying. I can honestly say my life seems to be finally taking an upward trajectory for the first time in a very long time. I would highly recommend Minnie. She always makes it clear how much of an open and safe space our sessions are.

Minerva has been a goddessend to my son. He has been suffering from extreme anxiety and she is reaching all the right places in him and is able to see through his attempts to slow the process. I am very appreciative of her and her abilities.
Peace, Matthew.

I was hesitant to start therapy for a variety of reasons. However my main anxieties stemmed from the fear that a therapist might not know how to deal with my internal crazy. Eventually, I took the courage to start therapy with Minnie and she has exceeded my expectations. Her outstanding knowledge and expertise blew me away, ultimately shifting my mind set from complete isolation into a realm of hope, positivity and mental well-being. My conditions with trauma, OCD and anxiety had taken over my life, and I never thought cognitive behavioral therapy would make a difference in such a short amount of time. Yet with Minnie’s unquestionable sympathy and support, I noticed a huge spiritual and psychological growth within me.
