Hi, I am Aida Maravillas,
Welcome to Savvy Social Worker, I am so glad you're here!
I write to help overwhelmed and stressed out Moms balance the demands of taking care of their children while taking care of themselves too.
If you are overwhelmed with the stresses of parenting, you have come to the right place!
I am a wife, a mom to three girls, a grandmother to one boy, and a licensed clinical social worker serving families in a high school setting for over 17 years.
I am a licensed clinical social worker but I consider myself to be qualified not only by my education but by my life experiences and by my experience in working with others. I am also qualified by God's grace and the way that I've had to continue to learn to accept His grace and move forward in recovering from my own failures and mistakes. I am on this journey too.
Walk alongside me and I will be here for you. I will cheer you on with an offering of perspective, hope, and encouragement for the challenges that you may face on your own parenting journey.
I am far from being a perfect mom, and I have learned not to strive for perfection in this world. 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. Many of 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 in our role as a mom are sensitive. The privacy and integrity of the relationships within our homes 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 moms. Building those relationships can happen here.
