The Reason I Became A Helping Professional

When I was 17 years old I was placed at a drug rehab facilty.  It was there I first learned that I was a lonely and very sensitive young man who had a lot to offer the world.  These counselors told me that I actually had worth and was a terrific listener and problem solver.  They suggested that when I grow up I become a psychotherapist.  I have never forgotten what they said.  Till this day, 34 years ago, I still hold that passionate and sensitve young man in my heart.  The young man who wants to change the world and help people with their pain and suffereing has evolved into who I am now.
