Cherilyn R. Haworth, MSW, LCSW –
My name is Cherilyn Haworth and I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the State of California since 2009. Becoming an LCSW requires you to obtain at least 3,200 hours in supervised work experience in a variety of areas, as well as passing two State administered tests that cover a wide breadth of therapeutic knowledge. I have worked in the field of trauma and abuse for over a decade. During this time I have worked with individuals, couples, families, and groups experiencing a variety of issues in many different settings. I also provide clinical supervision to Associate Social Workers and Marriage and Family Therapist Interns in a variety of fields, which allows me to also learn from them as we discuss the clinical aspects to their work.
I am a long standing member of the National Association of Social Workers and the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children. In 2014 I became one of a few State trainers in Trauma Informed Care and I provide various trainings locally on the effects of trauma and how to identify resiliency factors to address traumatic effects. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Social Work with a concentration in Children and Families, as well as hundreds of hours of Continuing Education. I also work with adults and children who are experiencing life transitions, mood disorders, grief and loss, or psychological and spiritual problems. My clients include those who wish to improve their marriages, parenting, communication, and/or life skills.

Petra Gil-Vigie, MSW, ASW –
Hello, my name is Petra Gil-Vigie. I come from a diverse and faith based background. I have worked in the medical field for over 16 plus years providing supportive services and worked with individuals, children, and families in Kern County for over 14 years. I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work and I’m currently an Associate of Social Work intern working on my clinical supervision hours.
