Stephen A. Vinson, MSW
Registered Clinical Social Work Intern
I am a graduate of the University of West Florida with a master’s degree in social work. I am currently a registered clinical social work intern with the state of Florida working towards becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).
I have had the privilege of interning and working both in local and government agencies. These broad range of experiences helped me clearly identify my passion for helping others.
I currently work with children, teens and adults and I am committed to helping all individuals who face challenges or hurdles, achieve their goals.
I strongly believe a plan with action is the catalyst for change. I am a devoted and dedicated clinician who supports and encourages my clients in their efforts to change and grow. This truly motivates me to be the clinician I am today.
I am a graduate of The University of West Florida. I have a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies, with a specialization in Children in Society, and minored in child welfare and substance abuse. I have a passion for helping and serving people. Most would say that my bubbly personality is infectious and brings a lightheartedness to every room I enter. This is fitting because I honestly believe that “Laughing is one of the best forms of therapy.”
As a military child, moving around became a normal way of life for me. I enjoyed traveling and meeting new people, but I felt like every time I made connections it would be time to move again. Because of this, when we did move, making genuine connections with peers was especially important to me. I am still impacted by those connections today.
Maya Angelou once said, "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” I believe that every person that visits Daniels Harbor deserves to feel as though they have made a genuine connection because I know just how important and effective it is!
