Bobbie Lynn Edwards
I became a therapist because from a very young age I had a need to help others. I was inspired by my father, a psychiatrist, to always act in service of others. He reminded me, every day, that we are all the same and we are all connected. My profession has taken a lot of twists and turns but what keeps my passion growing is knowing that we are much more than our troubles, worries, fears and diagnoses.
