So am I! It was this curiousity that got me interested in pursuing the mental health profession. It took a long time to accept the idea of working as a therapist. However when I began serving clients at my practicum site, it was clear that I had never experienced the joy that comes with doing a job that you love. And just to be clear, my journey is still not over, I am only an MFT Trainee! Upon graduation, I twill then have to register as an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist with the Board of Behavioral Services in order to complete the 3000 hours required for licensure in the state of California.
But enough about me, you’re here because you wanted to talk about mental health right? Maybe you have some questions like:
- What is mental health and why does it matter?
- Where can I get mental health services?
- Is mental health for “crazy” people?
- How do I know if I need mental health?
That’s why I created this website! I wanted a place where anyone could click on the website and view free resources, discuss mental health, increase awareness, and learn how a therapist is mental health ally.
If this is something that you are also intersted in, welcome! Let’s begin our journey to learning more about mental health!
