Mayra has been more than wonderful with helping me during probably the most difficult time of my life. She was comforting to talk to, and most importantly, she taught me resilience and effective coping skills. Looking back, I cannot believe how much my life changed since the first day I stepped foot in her office. I could have never done it without her!!! ~OB
