I'm late and I feel horrible... I was once a client of Marlies', and she made my life do a 180. I no longer needed my medications, and I looked forward to every appointment with her. The last time I saw her, was at my Eagle Scout Court of Honor, and even though 3 years have passed, I still cry thinking about her. I've never met a more genuinely caring and thoughtful person, and her aura alone was that of sheer bliss in every aspect of her life. Even when her days were filled with stress and negativity, she made everything better. I saw other clients leaving her office with huge smiles, I was one of them as well. My life was saved by her, and it hurts thinking how many more could have been taken under her wing to have a new life for themselves as well. Thank you Marlies, you have saved me.
