Myra joined The Morton Center October of 2018. As a therapist, Myra not only address’s the individual’s addiction, but works to find “what’s under the iceberg”; the barriers that prevent a person from maintaining sobriety. These may include: trauma, abuse, mental health issues, or other co-occurring disorders. Myra believes that “If we can change one individual, we can change families, if we change families, we can change community, if we change community, we can change the world”.
