I encourage you to look at each tab on the website because they can have pieces of information of self-empowerment moments in your life


My name is Juanita Pettaway

I received my Social Work Graduate Degree at the University of Toledo and immediately went into non-profit management, Co-founding the Believe Center, a family and youth sports non-profit organization. Then became Executive Director, at age 27, of the Sofia Quintero Art & Cultural Center and an educator at Bowling Green State University before age 30. I then expanded the use of my social work degree and began working as a Clinical Mental Health Therapist, first with youth, then with adults, and into management. In 2020 my family and I began three for-profit businesses, including my private therapy practice called LIFEWORTHY- specializing in holistic treatment for depression and anxiety and Christian Counseling. My non-profit management and for-profit work skills have led me to identify and focus on the need for Business Owner and Entrepreneur therapy. I recently launched BUSINESS|WORTHY to assist individuals in separating their self-worth and stressors from that of their company.

I recently finished “Bringing the Couch to the Community,” 6-week workshop series aiding and educating adults on emotional wellness. At this time I plan to continue working part-time as a clinician to dedicate time to educate the community on therapeutic techniques and methods they would typically only learn in session, as well as continue working on my book “The Self-Empowerment Pantry.”
