Find the joy again. In parenting... In relationship... In life.
Mediation & Parent Coordination
If you are divorcing, my child development and special needs background keeps the focus on the best interests of your children while determining the new dynamic of your family.
Parent Behavior Training
No matter what age your child or what their diagnosis, we will collaboratively begin to shift the parenting and home dynamic away from the struggle and toward one that works better for your family.
With a nurturing, humorous and firm approach, I use a combination of therapies such as mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral, solution focused and somatic work to guide your growth.
“"Yours was the best parenting advice I have ever received all wrapped up into one hour...thank you for what you are doing to help us as parents. I have often felt such loss of hope, you have made me realize how much of this journey is up to me as the parent. I can't give up now!” -K.P.
“Merriam was an interesting and accomplished speaker, and it meant so much to me that she shared stories from her own life. I really loved her practical, step-by-step directions on how to address problem behavior. I will definitely be sharing the webinar with my husband and my colleagues.”
“You made me as a parent and professional so emotional, but in a good way! I was so engaged. Thank you for your time and expertise!” - M.M.
"Literally crying right now, feeling so heard, understood & related to...being diagnosed w/ ADHD as an adult & now trying to raise my own ADHD kids, I'm just trying to do right by them & myself and this talk is SO AMAZING!" C.
