Praise for Merritt & Master of One Coaching
I thought we were going to work on tangible tasks but this is something bigger. It’s hard for me to think that I should be investing in myself…but then again it is what I seek out every day and you are like a mentor…you’re a spiritual therapist. When we talked about [my goals] being so close I felt it. And that makes it all worthwhile. I feel grateful that I can talk about this part of me without judgment and better yet with guidance. I’m excited for what’s to come. ~ M.C., Entrepreneur
Merritt is truly a goddess of coaching. Her warm and caring energy is palpable. I always felt so safe in her presence, which helped me to open up, stand in my vulnerability, and allow myself to be guided towards the truth. Merritt has a gift of validating someone to their core. With Merritt’s support, I knew I could accomplish any goal. ~ Renee Nabatian, Coach & Entrepreneur
I’ve been “Yoda’d.” Merritt “Yoda’d” me!
– Tim McQueen, Producer, Musician, Entrepreneur, & Community Leader
Working with Merritt as my coach isn’t what I expected – it is so much better! It’s much more than a list of resources and tasks – she works with me to address my specific personal blocks so that I am able to get really clear on what I want, then supports me in charting plans to get there. Sometimes it is hard work, and so worth it. I recommend her to anyone.
~ Keely Sheehan, Artist/Designer/Entrepreneur
I appreciate Merritt’s ability to quickly grasp exactly what we needed for our team. More than that, her delivery was spot on and engaging. She walked us through the sensitive topic of diversity in the workplace in a way that brought us together and helped us learn more about one another. Folks are still talking about it.
~ Richard Heyl de Ortiz, Executive Director, Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York (AFFCNY)
I quickly grew to admire Merritt’s sage wisdom, deep capacity for empathy, and stellar communication skills. Her creativity, energy, and initiative drive a team forward, while she also takes careful measure to ensure all voices are heard. A natural motivator, Merritt is gifted in the ability to draw out potential- in individuals, groups, and programs- by pinpointing key opportunities for growth. Merritt is a trusted and intuitive leader and educator, one whose counsel and advice I’ve treasured.

Merritt is simultaneously the little voice inside your head telling you to take that leap into the unknown to a better life and the outside perspective you need to see the big picture to make that jump and soar. ~ Elinor Levy, PhD
