Minerva King

(LCSW)

About Me

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, couples 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.

Throughout my practice I’ve had the privilege of serving 1000’s of clients, and 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 couples, 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 and your partner to engage in exercises designed to help you implement 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 a member, 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, as a couple. You may find yourself enjoying the therapeutic time that is solely devoted to your relationship.

I can honestly say the time my partner and I have had with Minerva was very worth it and we see a difference already. She listened to everything we said and guided us exactly where we want to be. We now understand each other better and we could have never done it without her. She is someone who can relate and someone who truly cares, will help you where you want to be mentally & with your relationship. Thank you so much Minnie!

Our therapist is a wonderful and knowledgeable person who truly knows what she is doing. The depth and breath of her expertise instantly recognizable and most of all she is a caring and compassionate human being. Prior to finding Mrs. King, My wife was in therapy for a year on her own and her old therapist was disinterested at best. She did not touch upon any of the things that Mrs. King was able to identify in the first session alone.

I would highly recommend this therapist as she has helped us identify some of the challenges that are truly affecting us and thankfully we have started to chart a path forward. Five stars for me!!!!
