Finding a therapist who will understand you and hold space for your unique process can be hard. I want to make that process as easy as possible. Here is some information about what I do but please feel free to call or email me if you have any additional questions. I see a wide range of clients working through many different concerns. I specialize in trauma and grief (both traditional grief when you lose someone, and the grief after life changes without your consent, or when you realize a relationship will never be what you'd hoped.) Here you will have the opportunity for body, mind, and spirit healing in one space, if desired.
I am trauma-certified and trauma-informed yoga certified. Trauma can be a single event, multiple events, an ongoing pervasive feeling of being very alone as a young person, or show up in many different ways. I blend body-based methods with inner child work to facilitate the loving reconnection with versions of yourself "stuck" in those wounding experiences.
I believe in deep listening, and non-judgmental compassion and empathy. I aim to partner with you to explore your areas of concern and embrace your unique process of healing. We are in this together. I value working together to understand and release whatever holds you back from being the person you know yourself to be.

Elizabeth Merrell's Groups

COVID-19 process group

While the pandemic is far from over, as vaccinations roll out we are seeing a shift in energy. As more folks are vaccinated it may feel safer to return to activities that have been unavailable previously. With feelings of safety we often have greater access to unacknowledged feelings of this past year. This may bring up a multitude of inner experiences that may be helpful to talk about with others going the same process. This is an in-person group limited to 4 people and myself. This group is only for those who are fully vaccinated.
