Personal Consultation

This is for people that are wanting to discuss their situation and are looking for feedback about what treatment options they might explore or simply want to understand more about what is happening. This is of particular interest to men with gynecomastia, men who were sexually abused as children and their families and partners and bi and gay men that heterosexually married. My consultations are not limited to this but these are common.





EMDR Case Consultations for EMDR trained psychotherapists

I am an EMDR Approved Consultant for EMDRIA. I can provide hours for EMDR Certification and hours to become an Approved Consultant, in addition to just supporting therapists EMDR work with their clients. I look at the gestalt of the case with more than just an EMDR lens but is it is the core of the consultation.

Merle served as a case consultant for me for close to two years. Merle is one of the most highly experienced, well-trained and creative therapists and consultants I know of. During the course of our work together, Merle challenged me in the areas I needed to grow in and particularly helped me bring a deeper relational and integrative approach to my work. Merle was initially my individual EMDR consultant while I worked toward and gained EMDR certification. He was invaluable in refining and deepening my EMDR skills, enabling me to better conceptualize cases, bring more of myself into the room, and work more skillfully with complex trauma. Merle’s dynamic approach to therapy and his deep reservoir of clinical experience has enabled me to develop greater confidence in myself as a clinician and to build a potent mind/body and somatic orientation to my practice. You’ll be in very good hands should you decide to work with Merle.

Merle Yost was essential in my development as a psychotherapist. He supported me in deepening my work by changing my perspective of my work. I went from managing or decreasing symptoms of a client, to engaging a person to identify, accept, and move through the core underlying dynamics/relationships that create pain and suffering in their lives. I learned clinical skills and tools while increasing my intuition, compassion, patience, and non-domatic approach. Merle's wealth of knowledge of Pschodynamics, Gestalt, EMDR, Somatics, and Humanistic approaches gave me a great foundation to feel competent and more relaxed while doing challenging trauma work. I know that I utilize the work I did with Merle everyday. He not only supported me clinically but also taught me how to be a healer that can hold another human in their darkest shame with caring, compassion, and boundaried presence.

Energy consultations for individuals

Energy consultations are about assisting people in moving or removing personal blockages. While some talking will be involved it is mostly about tuning in and assisting in whatever way that I available.

"Merle is a really subtle energy worker to the point he feels like he can simply use the ambient energy to start a healing, He has worked on me countless occasions and usually it brings with it a calming effect. He guides a smooth transition between the emotional and energetic states.

His combination of his psychological background and intuitive psychic ability on where to look allows him to put words to the feeling experienced helping to clear the energy blockages. The energetic shifting from cleared blockages is an amazing feeling in the body. The shift in my life perspective after working with Merle on my energy blocks cannot be overstated.

He put me in my body so i could finally start my journey of self discover. He gave me the tools to help myself and cleared the parts of me that were hung-up and frozen."
