Shaquwanda Chew, MSW, LCSW
Licensed clinical social worker
“I chose to be a social worker and therapist because I am passionate about helping others. Through my own personal journey, I can relate to how challenging it can be to ask for help, with shame and guilt being attached to it. My dedication to helping others has allowed me to advocate for those who need it and also pursue change in the community. My personal goal is to provide a safe space for my clients to gather tools that will lead them to become the best version of themselves.”
