I've had the privilege of working with thousands of clients in the Harrisburg area for more than 30 years.  I want to extend a big 'thank you' to those who shared the testimonials below. 

Merle is one of the best counselors in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  He truly cares and gets to the root of any issue you are having.  I have had many counselors, but Merle is the best all around.

Family man

I was married in 1981, and have lived in Harrisburg, PA, with my wife Molly and our five children since 1984. Merle enjoys the cultural and arts events available in Harrisburg, Washington D.C., and New York.


I also like playing racquetball, and watching sporting events with friends, especially when the Pennsylvania teams are doing well.

Work life

I have worked as a marriage, family, and addiction counselor for over 30 years, including 15 in close collaboration with churches in the Harrisburg, Hershey, and York areas. After all this time, I am more enthusiastic than ever about helping people overcome life's challenges.
