The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
I grew up as a missionary, constantly traveling and meeting people from different cultures, religions and status. But the one thing I found all had in common is a need for love, significance, security and a sense of belonging. I believe in the infinite value of each human soul, and my desire is to help everyone I come in contact with to know their own worth, and to be confident in the life God has given them–and to use it to its full potential. I want to see others enjoy life to the max, without fear and inhibition, and without procrastination.
