What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I am excited about seeing people who come to me feeling hopeless and pessimistic about their lives learn how to develop high self-esteem. It is very gratifying to help a person overcome their problems and live a happy, fulfilling life. The greatest gift I get is to see the growth in my clients every day.
