Path of a Survivor


  • Shelly Werts Mental Health Therapist


Personal experiences inform professional journeys. The author of this narrative has been afforded the opportunity for growth on paths of personal enlightenment and professional competence simultaneously as the two have converged in her life. This narrative is her proclamation as social worker and a survivor that all voiceless voices shall be heard; that everyone can have the courage to stand as one in bringing sound to our shared cause. *Names have been changed to maintain confidentiality.
