Get to know Shama Joshi
Do you ever wonder what the person in front of you is thinking? How their mind works and how it can be different or similar than yours? If so, you and I are very much alike. I’ve always enjoyed meeting new people and hearing their stories. I became intrigued in learning about their culture, different aspects of their backgrounds, strengths, challenges, and overall experiences that have shaped them to be the person they are today. In taking my time to learn, I would be empathetic, attentive, and advise them to my fullest. Because of my passion of wanting to learn from others, I went into education and then into clinical social work. I started to recognize how strong, but yet, how fragile the brain could be. Just like everything else, our brain needs the same amount of support and time to heal, especially if trauma is or were to occur. Mental health is important at every stage of life and can affect how we think, feel, and act. I want to be there for my clients at all those stages in order to provide a listening ear, a sense of hope, and a non-judgmental environment where they can grow and fill their hearts with happiness. It is never too late to ask for help. Our clients are the ones that inspire us to do the jobs we love to do and that will never change.
