Why did you choose mental health care as a career path?
“I feel a huge resonance with getting to know people on an authentic level, particularly those in their most vulnerable emotional states. Being an empath and having navigated my own journey, I enjoy helping those who seek emotional balance by providing traditional medication management and holistic alternatives.”
