Why did you decide to become a mental health professional?
I’ve always known I wanted to help people in some capacity, it just took me some time to figure out how to do that. I want to normalize mental health and increase access to receiving treatment for mental health struggles. My goal is to reduce the stigma of asking for help, and guide individuals along the process of receiving help in a safe environment.
