Dr. Meier and his staff at the Meier Clinic in Richardson, TX, saved my life. In 2003, shortly before my 50th birthday, my 4th divorce became final. I felt alone and unloved. I couldn't bear the PAIN of my life anymore. I was waiting for my settlement money, so I could divide it between my 3 grown children, with a letter telling them how much I loved them and how sorry I was for being such a failure, then I was going to commit suicide. I told no one about my plan, because I didn't want anyone to stop me.

A few days before my money came through, someone suggested that I read LOVE IS A CHOICE, co-authored by Paul Meier. I was struck by the compassionate way the authors told about a woman who, like me, had been through multiple divorces. So I called the Meier Clinic, and told the person who answered about my suicidal plan. He said, "Come here instead, we can help you."

I did, and the help they gave me was beyond measure. After a battery of psychological tests, Dr. Meier diagnosed my Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, stemming from the horrific trauma I went through in my childhood. Dr. Meier assured me that I'm NOT mentally ill, because PTSD is a normal reaction to extreme trauma, just as bleeding is a normal reaction to being stabbed!

At the age of 14, after years of abuse and trauma too extensive to go into here, I had a "breakdown." This was in 1967, before PTSD was even known. I was diagnosed with Schizophrenia, the catch-all mental illness diagnosis of that era, and my mother then put me in a mental institution, telling me I was ??crazy just like your father,? and saying she was afraid of me... although I had never hurt anyone, never tried to hurt anyone, never even threatened nor ever so much as wanted to hurt anyone.

I came out of that snake pit, which has since been closed and torn down, with ZERO self-esteem, believing I was CRAZY and WORTHLESS. I was the perfect target for abusers. I didn't know how to do a healthy relationship. As needy and broken as I was, no healthy men were attracted to me. I kept looking for a Prince Charming to rescue me, believe me, and love me to wholeness. What I needed was a Savior, something no mere mortal can be! Each failed relationship left me more broken than I was before. My life was a train wreck, like a 100-car-pileup on icy roads in dense fog, with one crash leading to the next crash, and the next and the next.

I had tried other counselors, only to be given a band-aid at best, and in the worst cases, more abuse. I have seen 2 counselors who, after I sat in their office for that first half hour pouring out my life story, told me in so many words that I was too hopelessly mentally ill for them to waste their resources on! The last time that happened was a few months before I went to the Meier Clinic. The pompous a** who told me how hopeless I was, was the ??final straw? that put me on the path to suicide!

In the Meier Clinic, I was treated with Compassion, Respect, and Understanding, by all the staff. No one was the least bit condescending, not to me nor to any of the other patients while I was there. I was BELIEVED when I told about my traumas. No one even suggested that I may have ??provoked the abuse? because I ??like to suffer!?

I left Dr. Meier's Clinic with my self-respect restored, actually LIKING ME, able to trust my own judgment, make healthy choices, and set healthy boundaries. These past 8 years have been the BEST years of my life, thanks to Dr. Meier and his staff.

This has been an absolute blessing in our lives. We didn't know where to go to help our son but the Meier clinic was the best decision we made. He loves it! And we do to. Thank you so much Meier clinic for saving his life!

One of the nicest staffs I have ever encountered in any type of medical office. I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes to get into my appointment.
Dr. Trulson is a wonderful therapist.

I've seen this clinic advertised in the cinemark, and thought I might check them out. I've only been married less than a year, but you can never have enough counseling. So my wife and I went here, and we got advice that we will remember for years to come. We've read lots of books, and attended marriage conferences, but I think of all the advice and counseling that Ive recieved so far, this is by far the best, and the advice I remember. And for the price, its well worth the dollar.
