NOTE: THIS IS NOT PROPHETIC COUNSELING
For those that desire a deeper exploration during therapy, Christian Counseling is available!
My career has taken me to many different settings where I provided therapy. One by one, the clients would inevitably reveal a core aspect to their suffering....a problem with how the church would have spoken about their struggles. I discovered the root to the client's problems often times came from shame and condemnation, perceived or in reality, coming from religious people and internal beliefs. The person was in bondage and their lack of understanding God and the Bible was in the way of their freedom.
For some they believed God abandoned them which led to their trauma. For others, they believed that they are too far gone to ever be connected to God again.
Jesus is not about religion but a RELATIONSHIP...WITH YOU!
WHATEVER YOUR STORY, WE WILL WORK THROUGH THIS TOGETHER
To give you a little more background about myself, I am a licensed and ordained minister. I hold a double doctorate in Ministry and Theology. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor.
I mentor people everyday in their faith and relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I provide a safe place for you to heal and reconnect even stronger to God. No more feeling like a stranger before His presence. No more feeling you are an outcast because you have a past. We all have a past that we are not proud of BUT there is Beauty From The Ashes when we allow Him access into our lives again.
LET TODAY BE THE DAY THAT YOU NO LONGER HIDE FROM ANY PERSON AGAIN. GOD IS NOT FINISHED WITH YOU YET, SO DECIDE TO NOT BE FINISHED WITH HIM YET.

"MaryEllen has great sense of humor. She is great listener and provides an amazing outsider perspective. Never doing therapy before, I wasn’t sure what to expect and was extremely nervous of what to share. I completed a questionnaire before the visit but honestly was very vague. She was able to use the little bit of information to start conversation and we got to the root of my problems VERY quickly! She let me speak at my own pace and let she share what I wanted without pressing for more. She gave me time to cry some things out but didn’t allow me to feel to down on myself or judged along the way. I did not expect to get so much out of just 1 visit. She ensured me she had a master plan and within time I’ll look back and the pain I carry will no long bother me as it does now. I’m excited to work with her along this journey and am looking forward to my future state."-Angel B.
"MaryEllen has been a tremendous help to me. She is smart and well skilled in her profession. She has helped me to see things much differently and clearly and as a result, what was chaotic is now organized and I can make sense out of it. I am so much better because of her."-Temekia H.
"I’m impressed by MaryEllen’s skills and technique. I’m not a native English speaker, but she still managed to give me great counseling and appropriate help. She’s a patient, kind and empathetic person. She managed to quickly spot the root cause and help me to get out of my personal, emotional & spiritual trap, so that my life can get back to normal. Her treatment is effective. She’s one of the best counselors I have ever met."-Letty N.
"I have been seeing MaryEllen McCloud to help cope w and resolve severe trauma and abuse challenges I have dealt w for a life time. She has a calm and reassuring demeanor and is a very compassionate person. I am thrilled w the results so far from EMDR. I am feeling less anxious and overwhelmed after each session. I would highly suggest anyone dealing w past trauma, PTSD, abuse, etc. to stop suffering and get help. I only wish I had started sooner. I highly recommend Ms. Martyn."-Kathleen K.
MaryEllen has a unique ability to get to the root of issues , quickly! She is compassionate, and caring. She has helped me tremendously. I am beyond blessed that I found her. I recommend her to anyone needing help with direction, or help overcoming traumatic events. Life changing for me!- Deanna F.
I have looked for a counselor to help me with EMDR to help treat my PTSD. MaryEllen has been working with me almost weekly for about three months and my quality of life has improved.- Stephanie F.
I worked with MaryEllen via online link because I live in another state. She is amazing, helpful, intuitive and helped me zoom in on what needed to be addressed then taught me how to work through it until I felt so much better and lighter. I am really grateful I met her!-Kathy B.
MaryEllen really gives you the space to express as little or as much as you are ready to, she is very intuitive and a great listener, very patient but will keep you on track. She does not judge and it feels like she really believes in her clients and her practice. ~Ashley P.
Sessions with MaryEllen were sought out after experiencing significant loss and betrayal. I found her to be an excellent listener, one who was able to both be comforting yet helpful in confronting the issues blocking my advancement. I also enjoyed her sense of humor because sometimes we ALL just need to laugh. -Terry S.
MaryEllen is a "Root Killer!" I have been to many counselors starting in my teens. Starting over with a new person is very challenging and often times it took months to get the courage to find someone again. It sounds crazy I know, but I think I will finally be able to finish therapy and not move onto a new person. All of the things I wanted to see change in my life are being addressed in an easy to digest and manage timetable. She takes great notes on what I said from the very first session and did indeed deliver on what I was seeking help with. She got to the root of my problems quickly and just guided me towards the right path of healing. I am so grateful and much restored!- Anna M.
The paths we choose in life directly impact where we will end up in life. Taking charge is key to reaching your God given Destiny.
The small things we do will add up to influence areas of our journey we may never anticipate.
I encourage you to take charge of your life, your choices, and your destiny now! ~MaryEllen
