"I believe it's incredibly important to take care of your mental health, just like your physical health, to help you be the best person you can be! I believe everyone struggles at some point, and even though reaching out for help may be scary, it can be incredibly helpful to move forward in life, especially when you're feeling "stuck". "

"My favorite part of my job occurs when a patient has an "Ah Ha" moment. That gives me an "Ah Ha" feeling back. May not be the technical term, but it's why I keep doing what I do!!!"
