Why I Became a Therapist

Why did I become a therapist?

I wanted to make a difference. I wanted others to know that they weren’t alone in their aloneness. That there was no shame in wanting a better life. That there was nothing wrong or broken about feeling broken sometimes.

That’s the difference I want to be in others’ lives. Not a quick fix. Not a magic solution. But a champion and a witness. To bear some of the burden of pain, to empower others to heal in their own wise way, to celebrate and encourage those victories great and small. To never give up. To hold the light of hope when every path seems blocked. To say, “I see you. It’s real. It’s ok. This life is vast. There is so much wonder to come. Let’s find it – together.
