Areas of Competency:
Merri Ellen partners with God in helping you understand your value, your potential and what barriers could be limiting you from your greatest freedom in life’s adventure and walking in your calling. She has discovered that too many people unknowingly live their lives stuck in first or second gear. She loves asking the right questions to help you move out of park and into full gear.
This often includes dismantling spiritual strongholds and oppression, facilitating trauma and grief recovery, forgiveness, effective reconciliation and mediation (which requires true repentance on both parties), exploring dreams, assessing gifts, talents and callings, and releasing healed emotions, exchanging limiting lies for empowering truth. Walking in the truth truly does set you free!
