Dear Dr. Marke, I cannot thank you enough for equipping me with the tools to change my life, process my painful past, and move forward in life-affirming directions. You are that rare person with an amazing gift to see people for who they truly are and guide them towards reaching their full potential. When I first met you, I was not half who I wanted to be. Now, after relatively brief treatment, I feel that I am the person I always knew I could become: flawed still, of course, but embracing life’s joys and tolerating its woes with grace and humility. My happiness has been in no small part influenced by your wisdom, kindness, and therapeutic excellence. I thank you for these gifts and I hope that others are as lucky as I am to find you.
Ma 2010
