Merle is full time writer, speaker and consultant. Retired from private practice psychotherapy after 25 years, he now lectures and consults to help people make sense out of their lives and often the pain they are in, so they can move forward. With over 35 years of personal and professional work, Merle has taken the summary of his experience and training and uses it to help others.
All of his books are about helping people live better lives. Merle is committed to continuing his teaching and efforts to educate people about themselves.
