Why I Chose Therapy

"Why did you want to become a mental health therapist?"

Many people have asked me over the years why I wanted to become a mental health therapist. The easy answer is that I want to help people, but in reality it goes much deeper than that. I know on a personal level how therapy can impact your life. Therapy has helped me become the person I want to be today.

When I had hard life circumstances come up, I needed support. I received that support from mental health professionals in clinical therapy settings. I can truly say without the support I received; I don’t know what my life would look like today.

I experienced a judgement free zone, struggled with hard questions, grieved, began healing, and persevered. I was empowered to make my own decisions and pursue the life I love today.

I know firsthand that starting therapy can be scary. I’ve been in the other seat before. Being vulnerable with someone you don’t know very well can be intimidating, but I also know that over time you build a therapeutic relationship, and it becomes easier, and more than that it’s worth it.

On a professional level, I have had the absolute honor and privilege of walking through some of life’s toughest moments with people, and I have also watched them soar. Whether you are working through a past trauma, struggling with addiction, can’t understand why you are having intrusive thoughts, or why every relationship around you seems to falter, we can walk through the hard together. You don’t have to do it alone.
