Carlos Garbiras

I read once that therapists gravitate towards psychology because they need to make sense of their past trauma. I don’t know if I’d call my upbringing trauma. I’m also not a therapist.

We are not that much different, you and me. I mean, didn’t your mom called the cops and reported you kidnapped when you didn’t come back home on time after your first Multi-Level Marketing Scam meeting across town?

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies and Social Psychology from San Diego State University.
