I am a therapist because I have learned that a vast amount of people feel isolated, overlooked, exhausted, worthless, sad, anxious and fearful. They need a person to listen to them. They need someone to explain to them they have value. They need skills to help them adjust their sadness and fear to joy and courage. I am a therapist because when I see people fight their battles in that way and I want to reach out and help. I can encourage. I can listen. I can be that support. I can teach them how to navigate life with a little more contentment and a little more joy.
