Why did you choose mental health as a career path?
“I chose mental health care as a career path because I believe in every individual’s ability to overcome obstacles and find fulfillment in life. I consider it a privilege to bear witness to the experiences, struggles, and successes of clients within a supportive relationship. I believe that life is a gift, and I hope to help others develop their ability to cope with life stressors, have satisfying relationships, and maintain good mental health.”
