Tiffany Garner, MA, NCC
Mecklenburg County Community Support Services
Children’s Services Senior Social Worker
I strive to serve children and teens because I thoroughly enjoy planting the seeds of wisdom and knowledge into the hearts and minds of young people. And those seeds will hopefully take root and ultimately lead to positive, successful choices that will impact their lives as well as their communities.
For the Mecklenburg County Women’s Commission, I serve in the capacity of a senior social worker for children and teens who have witnessed domestic violence.
I provide individual counseling throughout the Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools system as well as facilitate group counseling, addressing topics ranging from domestic violence basic education and safety planning, to healthy expression of feelings, taking responsibility/accountability and building self-esteem. I am also excited to participate in an initiative where I teach a domestic violence/healthy relationships course at Mecklenburg County Jail North every month.
