I was born and live in Independent Ukraine. The russian full-scale invasion ruined my life when it started getting better in February 2022. Mr. Mark Pruitt did a great job patiently listening to all of my feelings regarding all the overwhelmingly painful experiences of a depressed & heartbroken woman in this world – a daughter, a granddaughter, a cat's mom, a sister, a jobless person with no close friend, stalked by hackers – a native Ukrainian. He makes me feel seen & heard, always finds the right words to say, and I truly feel better after talking. Mark helps me feel good about myself and stop negative self-talk. His main advice he often repeats to me is "be kind to yourself." There are no better words that would fit my obstacles these days. Mr. Pruitt showed me kindness, care, and respect, giving me the attention I needed. I appreciate his moral support. I feel grateful & lucky to talk to him.
