My journey towards becoming a psychotherapist in Torrance, CA
Ever since I was young, I was curious about people. Often, I sat in quiet observation, watching and wondering. I pondered behaviors, like cruelty, kindness, and compassion. In fact, I contemplated emotions, like love and hate, rage and calmness, and sorrow and happiness. In adulthood, my inquisitiveness expanded as did my desire to do meaningful work. Thus, it evolved into a desire to help people who suffer from emotional distress. This led me to graduate school and the study of psychology.
While earning a Ph.D., I aspired to become skilled at helping people. Especially those who dealt with anguish within themselves as well as tension in their relationships. I focused on learning about the link between human connection, emotion, and behavior.
