Kathy Myrkle, LMSW
I hope to change the way people “see” in their lives, from moments of despair, of sadness, of fear, of anxiety, and of overwhelming challenges. I want them to find moments of humor, of insight, of fascination, of joy, of wonder, and of overcoming their struggles. I want to meet people exactly where they are at and help them find perspective and hope, and strength to do more than survive; yes, to thrive. I want to touch their souls in incredible ways, both small and great, and help them dream and become the people they want to be. When you come to see me, I want you to walk away with the clear knowledge that, “YOU MATTER.”
