Why did you choose mental health care as a career path?
“I chose to become a mental health practitioner because of the opportunity to build close and lasting relationships with my patients. My patients allow me a window to their greatest vulnerabilities and trust me to partner with them to get better. This is a great privilege that I will never take for granted. I learn something new from patients every day, and this allows me to become better at what I do.”
