Dora

My job title is Mental Health Counselor. My work involves working with refugee and torture survivors. I provide individual and group therapy, as well as case management services. I have been with the agency for the last two years.
What I like about my job is being able to provide support, encouragement, hope, advocacy, and empowerment for the newly arrived refugees.

My old glasses are not useful, and I got lost when I couldn’t see the signs. New glasses will also help in my English class. More
