Devora Zheutlin, MA, CAS

While you might think trustworthiness and confidentiality are obvious and can be assumed, they’re actually quite precious and can be hard to find in a friendship

 

Backfired

Rachel Stein

The warm camaraderie dissipated, as if blown away by a frigid arctic blast. Warily, six sets of eyes narrowed, watching Mindy and Rena approach

 

DMCs: Back to Normal
