What it’s Like to Be a Therapist

Feb 10, 2018 in Ask The Therapist

Becoming a therapist has definitely been an amazing journey for me. It has given me purpose and it has also helped my personal growth- not only mentally and emotionally, but also spiritually!

My biggest goal now as a therapist is to be able to show people what a great therapist should be like and the positive differences a good therapist can make in someone’s life. I want to be a therapist who can contribute to the overall growth of the mental health field.

The interesting fact is I never saw this coming. Sometimes we don’t choose the path, the path chooses us. I was previously a physician, but changed over to the mental health therapy field so I could help people in improving their behaviors and ability to cope with detrimental and stressful life situations. Psychology has always been my passion and now I’m contributing to the mental health field. Any amount of positive change I make in my clients’ lives gets me a bit closer to my goal of helping others.
