Hi, I am Aida Maravillas!
Welcome to Savvy Social Worker, I am so glad you're here! If you are overwhelmed with the stresses of parenting, you have come to the right place! Let’s face it, parenting can be hard sometimes as we battle to balance the demands of taking care of our children and taking care of ourselves too.
I am a mom to three girls and I am a licensed clinical social worker serving families in a high school setting for over 15 years. I am here to offer you perspective, hope, and encouragement for the challenges that you may face on your parenting journey.
I am far from being a perfect parent, but I have learned that when we face challenges within a community, we are less likely to feel alone through those difficult times.
I have sat down with countless families and helped them navigate through some challenging times. Our children are battling through depression, anxiety, social media concerns, and many other issues.
Finding the right place to turn for support can be challenging. Some of our struggles with our children are sensitive and the privacy and integrity of our children can be hard to preserve if we turn to the wrong places. Being part of a community gives us a sense of support, even if we are only ready to listen to the stories of others.
The most important thing that has carried me through some challenging situations has been my faith as well as finding moments to build relationships with other parents.
Join the Savvy Social Worker community by signing up for a monthly dose of perspective, hope, and encouragement so we can press on together!
