Javonne Faison, LCSWClinical Supervisor
Javonne Faison received her master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from New York University in 2014. Since then, she has specialized in mental health, trauma, and substance abuse disorders while working with adults, adolescents, and children. Javonne has faced sexual abuse and domestic violence herself so knew from an early age that she wanted to empower others to achieve wellness and improve their overall well-being.
After getting out of the homeless shelter system, she went to school and was given her first job working at the front desk of a domestic violence shelter. She worked there for seven years while completing two degrees.
She has helped clients with developmental disabilities, serious mental health concerns, and substance abuse. She has provided individual, couples, and family therapy. Javonne is a firm believer in working from a strength-based approach. She believes people are in charge of their own lives and that it is her job as a therapist to strengthen and empower while teaching and highlighting what is already within.
Javonne is a mother to two beautiful girls, newly engaged, and a homebody who loves music, candles, and worship. Her current motto is: “Pour into yourself. In order to show up for others, you must first take care of yourself, and that’s okay! Make the time, you are worth it.”
