Why Avrohom Leffler chose to be in the helping profession
Working with people has always been my passion! I find immense joy in the world of therapy and aiding individuals in their journey. It's not just a job; it's a profound privilege and an honor that I hold in the highest regard.
Initially, I viewed being a therapist as a mere "career," but as time unfolded, it became abundantly clear that it is my life's passion. Each day, my enthusiasm for this profession deepens, and the thought of pursuing anything else is inconceivable. Being a therapist has been an incredible source of personal growth for me, thanks to the invaluable lessons I've learned from my clients. However, what truly resonates with me is the extraordinary sensation of forming a genuine connection with another remarkable individual—nurturing a relationship built on mutual respect and understanding, all while actively contributing to their flourishing. It's an unparalleled experience that is hard to surpass!
I cherish the moment when a new client cautiously steps into my office, harboring hope for positive change. Witnessing their transformation throughout a session, realizing they have a therapist who genuinely cares, approaches the work with utmost seriousness, involves them in the process, and ensures they comprehend every step of the journey is immensely gratifying. The satisfaction of seeing a client leave with a smile, armed with the confidence that they are on a path of growth with a supportive guide, is truly incomparable.
