Life Coaching

What is Life Coaching?

Life Coaching is a co-creative relationship that provides clients a support system through an accountability partner, truthful dialogue, and new perspectives; all designed to create shifts in thinking, behaviors and actions. Through coaching we clarify and prioritize your values and goals, then together put an action plan to move you forward towards a life you desire.  Merrill will push you beyond your self-perceived limits to be the BEST YOU!

“Today you are You, that is truer than true.
There is not one alive who is Youer than You!”
Dr. Seuss
Be You, Everyone is taken!



Are you feeling unsatisfied or stuck in the life you are living?
Are you living a good story or are you just running with no direction or purpose?
Have you fallen and can’t get back up. Much less know what direction to head towards?
Is your soul restless? Are you always searching?
Do you set goals and never attain them?
Are you wasting time and energy dealing with negative emotions that keep you from living a healthy joyful life?
Is unforgiveness, anger, fear, grief, or bitterness standing in the way of having loving relationships?

Have you ever asked yourself, “How did I get here?
Well Who’s Been Driving Your Bus?

Coaching works with an individual in achieving his or her personal goals. It addresses specific needs in the client’s personal life by examining what is working and what is not. Then tackling the obstacles and challenges that are holding them back and finally choosing an action plan to create the healthy balanced life the client desires. Coaching is a relationship that continually gives the power back to the client.



Life coaches are different from traditional therapists because they don’t spent valuable time going backwards. Life coaches are result-driven. We assess where you are and why but their goal is to get you up and move you forward.

Life Coaching pairs an emotionally healthy person, who is ready for change, in partnership with an accountability partner to create positive shifts and significant changes in their life. Coaching can create the “fine tuning” that you need to attain the goals, purpose, passion and satisfaction in your life.

I am honored to be your coach. I believe that each person offers a unique contribution to the world, but we create the life we lead by the choices we make daily.
