experiences intertwined with Myrna's professional training create a
unique healing experience for the client.
When you walk alongside abused children who crawl in your lap,
cry and tell you their stories or you have an adult sit in your office,
look you in your face, call you a friend, then walks out and shoots
himself, it gives you enough experience to know what you are
looking at. We have years of practice of talking to people who are
so low, broken and hopeless, that we have had to literally reach
down and pull them from death's door. Sometimes you have to
take off the professional mask and cry with the client, letting them
know you are a human being who cares. We care.
