"Merri Ellen’s life coaching and spiritual direction is uniquely life-changing as she partners with God in each session; leading clients of all ages to hear His voice, in order to receive hope, inner healing, freedom, and direction. She has been coaching people since 2003 in over 120 countries."
“Before meeting with Merri Ellen, I was feeling stuck and trapped; mainly due to depression and mental health. I felt far away and disconnected from God which was leaving me feeling discouraged and unable to move forward.
Now, I have been able to hear God’s voice in our sessions. Holy Spirit has been guiding our conversations, revealing things to us. I was losing hope and to hear the Spirit’s voice again. Having Merri Ellen guide me through some exercises has been a gift.
What has been most helpful is Merri Ellen’s authenticity. It’s been helpful for me to meet with someone who is relatable, safe and authentic. I have felt safe to be myself and open up. I have also appreciated God’s hand throughout the session. Praying and allowing Him in.
My main concern was having to start over with another counsellor/life coach. To have to reexplain things and start from scratch and possibly end up even farther behind. But from our first session all those fears were gone. It was easy to open up and I felt understood. I felt able to move forward. I could feel the Spirit’s work and left feeling very encouraged and hopeful.
I have been to many counsellors and Merri Ellen brings a uniqueness I haven’t had. Authenticity, willingness to share, honesty, encouraging words and allowing God to intervene and direct our time together. Allowing God into every session makes all the difference.
I didn’t want to just go and talk to someone and vent about what was on my mind. I wanted to speak with someone who could help in the bigger picture. Someone who could see my past, my present and help me to see the future. Meeting with Merri Ellen has been an intentional time – with moving forward and closer to God as the focus. I chose her services because I didn’t want to get stuck analyzing the past, but instead seeing God’s hand in my past and using it in my future. I wanted to be encouraged and I wanted to be closer to God.
As a result of meeting with Merri Ellen, I have been given:
1. Hope for the future,
seeing God has a plan and purpose for my life
Before meeting with Merri Ellen, I was numb - feeling spiritually dead. Stuck in the depression. I wasn’t finding the motivation to do the things I wanted to do and I felt spiritually disconnected.
Today, I feel more spiritually alive. I have more confidence in praying and sitting in silence to allow God to speak to me. I feel more motivated to move forward because I am thinking of what I can become and what God can do in me. Thinking of the future and hearing God now in the present has really made a big difference.
It’s been fun, and I look forward to coming each time to meet with Merri Ellen. Yes, session time is often dealing with the hard, yucky things, but it’s fun and it feels safe and normal to allow those things to come out and work through them. I was surprised at how connected I was to God.
It's been nothing but a good experience in all our sessions. To have someone that sees potential in me, someone who sees me as a child of God.. not for what I’ve done or my flaws, but someone who sees and believes that God has a great plan for me. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to meet with Merri Ellen.”

Merri Ellen is the best!!
If you’re on the fence about hiring Merri Ellen, don’t be. She will help you get results! She is easy to talk to and gives excellent direction. Merri Ellen is a great listener, loves Jesus and directs results towards what you need."
