I would agree very much with a previous review by “PapaBear.” Merrill Graham had promised much the same, but in the end did nothing to help the children. It was a complete waste of time and money. I even caught her in a few outright lies. I have never experienced such a poor “therapist” in my...Read More

Merrill is such a great listener; she has strategies that help me get through my self harm thoughts and anxiety attacks. I am normally a closed off, shy person who hates talking about my emotions, but she is really easy to talk to. I am so thankful I found her-Winston the dog is a plus too!

My experience of Merrill has been a very negative experience. She is very one sided and is just trying to get another tally in her book that she has "reunited" a family. She makes me uncomfortable and not safe. I do NOT recommend her. Run while you can.

Merrill knew all of this when...Read More

Merrill likes to come off as caring, concerned and understanding. She promised me that she'd discuss concerns raised by my kids during my divorce with the ex-spouse, but she never did. Instead, she ended up taking sides, and in the end, had all my children frustrated with her empty promises,...Read More
