Personal Mission: Travel the world to experience God’s love for humanity.

Hello!  I am Desiree Valentine, MSW.  I have 12 years of experience in mental health support and look forward to supporting your path to learn new coping skills and behavior responses to thrive and heal.  I hold degrees from Stephens College (Columbia, MO) and University of Nebraska at Omaha.

I am a Licensed Social Worker, currently working under the supervision of Toni Lovell, LCSW, LCAC. I work from a trauma-informed, strengths-based, client-centered lens. I am passionate about working with:

  • Women
  • Expecting & postpartum parents
  • Teen moms
  • Families
  • Young adults
  • First generation college students
  • Probation parents & grandparents

In my time away from the office, I volunteer on the Physical and Mental Health Awareness Committee for Delta Sigma Theta International.  I am also a proud dog mom and nature lover.

I offer office-based or virtual services and would love to be a part of your story. Balance Works is conveniently located in downtown Ft. Wayne and offers free parking.
