Why are you passionate about providing mental healthcare?
I have always had a passion for mental health. I feel honored to be entrusted with my clients’ stories and to be able to help guide them towards healing themselves and loving themselves. It is beautiful to watch a client grow throughout your time together, and I find joy in helping others live more fulfilled lives.
I also feel strongly about helping to reduce the stigma of mental health so that all people can get the support they need.
