"When all is said and done, the ability to develop a strong therapeutic relationship with clients is the catalyst to easing their distress. I find that the most uplifting moments of being a Clinical Psychologist come when I am helping clients to navigate through the maze of their despair, traumas, and loss, to a place of hope and optimism.”
