I had completely given up pursuing my license (LMSW/LCSW) after failing twice! I took the exam right after graduating with my MSW. First, I failed by 1 point; 2nd time, I failed by 2! To say I was discouraged would be an understatement! I was a School Social Worker then and didn’t need my license. I had a side gig as an in-home therapist where that license would have made a huge difference in my salary, but that wasn’t motivating me enough to take that exam again, especially after not failing one exam my entire college career! Defeated, until now! Here, 16 years later, I decided to make a go for it. I relocated to Georgia 7 years ago, and the rules are different from those in New Jersey! So I found myself having to start all over with finding a supervisor and getting hours! I was informed that I had to sit for my LMSW first and then my LCSW. Well, I found a supervisor! As the Lord guided and directed my path, it led me straight to Ms. Treva Jones! I was clueless about the process and reached out through the BTR Facebook group, and she responded, among others! When I tell you, it was the best decision I ever made toward this process! Ms. Treva has picked me up, dusted me off, and set my hind parts in the right direction! My anxiety was decreased, my belief in myself was increased, and the knowledge gained was insurmountable! I have learned sooo much, and my perspective has changed as well thanks to Ms. Treva! Things I knew but didn’t understand why they were the way they were was brought to light! By the time I entered that exam room, I was ready ready! The techniques she gave me were utilized, and every time I drifted off, I was able to tap back in! I was taught by her to always attach the client to my hip, forming that tight relationship! I did want to quote. Her quote is now embedded, but she will certainly share it! I’m not sure how much room I have to share, but thank you so much, Ms. Treva, for teaching and guiding me through this. I am not done though! LCSW is on the horizon, and my confidence is SUP! My abilities are solid! I would encourage anyone to reach out and take her hand! “Endings are better than beginnings. Sticking to it is better than standing out. “Ecclesiastes 7:8! Best wishes to you all!

Working with Treva to further
Working with Treva to further enhance my skill set has been absolutely refreshing. She is thoroughly knowledgeable about EMDR protocols and techniques helping me to develop the confidence I needed to expand and adapt EMDR principles and protocols to all populations. The resources released and shared in her training was amazing allowing me to leave with techniques and tools I could quickly implement in practice. As a clinician you will leave her consultations feeling empowered and equipped with tools to help with the implementation of the EMDR processes making them easier. I highly recommend her consultation group.

I learned about Treva Jones from my BFF, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to work with her. I had struggled with passing my LCSW exam for a while and had worked with multiple tutors, but working with Treva was a game-changer for me. Unlike other tutors, she wouldn’t criticize or judge me for my mistakes but rather helped me understand how to work with people with anxiety and ADHD. Her compassion and expertise were evident throughout every session we had.
After working with Treva, I didn’t need any other tutors. She was able to identify my strengths and weaknesses and customize our sessions to fit my specific needs. Her guidance and support were invaluable, and I can confidently say that she gave me everything I needed to pass the exam. After ten unsuccessful attempts, I finally passed thanks to Treva’s dedication and teachings.
I highly recommend Treva Jones to anyone who is struggling with passing their LCSW exam. She is an exceptional coach who genuinely cares about her clients and will go above and beyond to help them succeed. Thank you, Treva, for all that you’ve done for me!

I am so grateful to say that I PASSED my LMSW exam on the very first try because of the Methods that Mrs. Treva Jones uses through Treva Jones Associates!!! She helped get my test Anxiety under control and really broke down the method on how to analyze and answer each of the exam questions. I walked in the test site feeling prepared and was able to leave my test anxiety at the door. I can’t say thank you enough!!! This was everything I needed and more. Without our study sessions it would not have been possible for me to pass the exam on the first try. I would recommend this to anyone who plans on taking the Social work exam!
I passed my LMSW exam on 01/14/2021. Treva taught me ways to manage my anxiety while testing (breathing techniques) and it helped in my passing!
Treva Jones Associates played an important part in helping me pass my ASWB Masters Exam. During each study session I attended, my confidence increased. Mrs. Treva Jones helped me work on skills to decrease my test taking anxiety. By the time I was scheduled to take my exam, I passed on the first time. I would highly recommend Treva Jones Associates to prepare you for your ASWB exam!
I just passed one of the most difficult exams of my life! I’m now a Licensed Social Worker! I began working with Treva Jones of Treva Jones Associates a few months ago and from the very beginning, she started me on a direct path to passing this LMSW exam. Her guidance, encouragement, positive affirmations, study materials, and groups helped me to push past any negative talk, any doubt, and distractions that were trying to have a seat at my table. She believed in me and that lent so much to my mental ability to stay present with the exam, kick my fears away as they tried to enter my head, and to become what I already knew I was inside…An amazing Therapist. If anyone is looking to pass the exam, join Treva’s Tribe. She not only teaches you that you belong at the table, but she will support you in building your own table so that you can create a path for others to one day join you, in this helping profession. Mental Health Therapists Rock!
In 2019, I failed by 12 points. In 2020, I failed by 5 points. I was in shock and disbelief when I saw the word ‘FAIL’. I couldn’t believe it, I questioned the integrity of the exam. I called the board and said that I would pay $25.00 to have my exam regraded. I decided against the idea because I felt it would have been a lose-lose situation for me. I was disappointed for a while and lost interest in studying. I kept rescheduling my exam, although I didn’t want to take it. My friend provided me with Treva’s contact information in September 2020, but I called Treva about 3 weeks before my exam, in January. I’m glad I called. I shared that I hadn’t really studied anything, but remembered a lot from my previous attempts. Treva provided encouragement, test-taking strategies, different methods of studying, handouts and memorable mnemonics. My anxiety decreased after attending Treva’s group and individual sessions. In February 2021, I passed the LMSW exam. I studied the exact same thing as before but incorporated Treva’s strategies. Treva contributed to my success!
I would like to take this moment to thank God first then I will thank Treva Jones Associates, in care of Mrs. Treva Jones, for providing me with the necessary tools needed to make it across the finish line into my destiny as a LCSW. I, just like hundreds of other social workers, had taken the LCSW exam numerous times, purchased hundreds of dollars in study materials, to only get into that testing center and fail the exam. Treva Jones Associates dedicated countless hours providing me with their time to tutor, to teach me grounding techniques through EMDR, and to show their sincere dedication to helping me pass this exam. The TJA Family is committed to sticking with you until you cross that finish line into your destiny. I can’t thank them enough and I would encourage anyone who’s out there needing assistance with passing their exam to contact Treva Jones Associates. I can proudly say I am officially a LCSW!!!!!

I am so thankful for Treva Jones and Treva Jones Associates. I picked up a lot of great information and helpful strategies in the Tuesday night Clinical Development Test Prep classes. The lectures helped me conceptualize things and helped me look for answers that include the clients. Thank you for the part you played in my journey.

After two failed attempts, I finally passed my LMSW exam. I have been studying with Mrs. Treva for about 2 weeks. When I first spoke to her, she told me that according to my scores, I needed to focus on Knowledge Gaps. She was able to promptly explain to me what I needed to do in order to pass the exam. This test seemed so broad to me; having a coach who has years of background experience helped me identify things I didn’t even notice. Mrs. Treva encourages you to study on your own and read through material. When you come to her for coaching, she will break it down and show you how to use certain tools and knowledge to answer the question. She is very patient, which helped a lot because I was able to learn multiple things in very little time. She also taught me a test anxiety coping mechanism to help deal with my emotions during the test. I would definitely recommend her as she is one of few who genuinely care. I am very thankful I met her, and believe she strongly contributed to my success in such little time. Treva Jones Associates will definitely give you a community of people to help you on your journey to licensure.
