Why Ally Became a Therapist

I chose to become a psychologist because of my strong desire to support and educate others about mental health. I enjoy offering empathy and compassion toward others facing challenges and helping improve their lives. 

How Ally Lives Authentically

I live authentically because I always explore my values and discover new strengths and weaknesses about myself. Also, I try to use my clinical knowledge to help me navigate my unconscious thoughts and build self-awareness.
