“How did you know you wanted to be a therapist?” 


“So, it happened in high school, I was a junior. I was going through a very dark period myself. I just needed an outlet, some support. I shopped around, found some therapists that did not work, and then found one that was absolutely wonderful. It was that time that I realized that this is something I want to do. I want to help people get to a point that I got to, and I was off and running I was off and running at from that point.”
