What Lead You to Your Current Job: I never really made a decision to be a therapist as much as it just happened. I met a professor who convinced me to do an internship for his class. It was the first time I was exposed to therapy and I started to focus on becoming a therapist.

Job Duties: My days usually consist of appointments with clients and I meet with a peer once a week. Most of my appointments are family sessions. The day-to-day issues are very different. Issues range from behavior problems, mood disorders, depression and more.

What I Like About My Job: The most rewarding aspects of my job are seeing the improvements someone makes when they have completed therapy.
