Sam shares, “I like making an impact on someone’s life during a severely stressful time. Having a client tell me how I have helped them just by listening means so much to me. It also highlights the importance of how these clients want to/need to be heard. I also enjoy encouraging clients to advocate for themselves particularly with any disparities they may encounter.”
