Why are you passionate about providing mental healthcare?

Life comes at us hard and everyone needs to know that they are not alone in their struggles whether it is unresolved trauma, recent loss, or anxiety about the future. Parents are struggling with raising children and children are struggling with feeling alone in their worlds. Sometimes, there are so many things happening at once that it can be difficult to sort through the mountain of worries to find the root of it all. As a therapist, I can help others— not by solving their problems but by helping them to feel less alone and empowered to find their inward hidden solutions.
