I am a Licensed Social Worker in New York State. A graduate from Yeshiva University, who earned a Masters Degree in Social Work. In the last 25 years, I have dedicated my life in helping women, men and children to overcome issues of codependence, anxiety, relationships and family issues. I have worked with Victims of Domestic violence, the homeless, Child Welfare and survivors of trauma. I was born in New York City and raised in the Bronx. I have transformed my life by writing and inviting others into my life for personal growth and development. As a witness and unwilling participant, I was subjected to many acts of childhood and family dysfunction. Although, the journey has been very challenging, I would not change any of the trial or tribulations of the journey. All the experiences expressed in this memoir had been for personal growth and understanding for the reader. It is never too late to evolve mentally, emotionally and spiritually. May my memoir reveal to you how to live life on life's terms. My reward to the reader of this book is to bring out the survivor spirit within all of us by believing in something greater than ourselves. Through meditation and reflection, I have learned the importance of self-worth and value of my life's journey by making a commitment to live. Maribel Gonzalez Nazario, LMSW.
