What Maria loves about working in mental health

“What made me become a counsellor is my interest in people and their stories. I believe we all have stories that are important to acknowledge, reflect upon and learn from. As much as I truly believe we are all the experts in our own lives, we all sometimes need to share our stories with someone. It is my privilege to support individuals as they continue to write their own story.”
