Headway

Merryl

My clients are warm, competent, creative, caring and intelligent people who find themselves pulled onto a healing path by distress in their personal lives or the world at large. Our work together will enable you to become more grounded, mindful, resourceful and fulfilled. Perhaps you struggle with prioritizing self-care and negotiating give-and-take in your relationships. We will tap into resources --including humor, beauty and resilience--to access your healing and joy. Our therapy is approached as an adventure--a sacred, creative journey where you can uncover choices you may not even be able to imagine now.


I draw on my training and experience as a master's-level expressive arts therapist, psychotherapist, holistic health counselor, personal trainer and behavior change specialist to support and motivate you. We will identify and change limiting assumptions and strengthen your self-esteem. My studies in mythology, dreams and archetypes will help you see your life stories with a fresh perspective.


You don't have to figure it all out on your own. Clients who work best with me approach therapy as partnering with a guide who can help them access intuitive, creative, physical, spiritual and practical resources. We weave together a unique net of support and strategies that you can tap into as needed for coping with the stressors in your life.
