Myrna Thatcher, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists
has been in private practice for 23 years. Seventeen of those years
she has partnered with Annette Smith who is Certified in
Adlerian Psychology and is a Lay Christian Advisor.
Annette's life 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.

Individual Psychology. Myrna is a member of Idaho
