Sean Merrick

Psychotherapist; AMFT #119806

My journey begins with a story. Three decades ago, my father – my hero – and I were talking tattoos. At that time I had none, but one in mind – The Vitruvian Man, by Leonardo Da Vinci. That art piece has followed me, and my clinical experiences, as I pursue a passion within the healing practices of Mind, Body, Spirit.

Although my full story can be read on my website, I am called to share an important event… One difficult Saturday morning, I had a breakdown! It exposed sorrowing truths where I had to accept that I was not truly living!
Gifted with an empowering psychotherapist, I began a deep dive into introspection and self-discovery. I pushed myself so hard that I discovered negative patterns, and beliefs, fortifying self-sabotage and reinforcing self-limiting beliefs. I was soulfully stagnant. Over the next decade, it became my mission to discover and assert my self-truths. This rebirth catalyzed deep, deep healing – healing that my soul yearned for.

My journey continues today – As a heavily armed registered psychotherapist and board-certified holistic medicine provider who respects entheogenic, shamanistic quests. Trauma-informed, depth psychology, along with functional medicines interventions and spiritual intuitions, allow me to be an integrative healing guide for those who invite me on their journey.

My belief is an effective guide fosters the process of self-discovery. Think of me as a guide who understands life's uncertainty, challenges, and hardships. One who recognizes self-sabotage, self-suppression, even damaging patterns. Who is responsible to facilitate a safe space for true introspection. This journey untangles repressed wisdom, illuminates personal honesty, and inspires transformation. For deeper trauma work, I off Brainspotting along with extensive trauma-informed approaches.

Symptoms are not the problem - Rather they are a maladaptive way to communicate an imbalance. Using modern laboratory testing, I uncover the root causes of inflammation. It is a holistic approach, focusing on a whole-body approaches that connect you to your own personal healing journey. I identify stressors that propagate damaging inflammatory responses within the digestive, hormonal, neurological, immunological, and biochemical systems of the body. While suggesting healing interventions.

Testimonials

"I cannot say enough positives about the time and energy that Sean puts into his work. My sessions have allowed me to personally tap into the pain that you only feel deep inside once you learn to connect with yourself. With Sean’s help, I have been able to sort through some of my deep-seeded childhood traumas. Sean has not only has been along for the ride, but he has also empathetically been on my journey with me. I searched for months to find the right person to connect with and work with as I started to unpeel the layers of my pain, and I am eternally grateful that this person is Sean. I whole-heartedly believe that his work is soulful, honest, and most importantly to me, authentic."

Testimonials

“So, I’ve quit therapy, and I have quit some more. I was over it and felt like nothing anyone did could help me. Then I came across Sean ... who I now call, ‘The Knower of Bullshit’.

He met me exactly where I was with empathy and acceptance.
He did not therapize me, he provided compassion and understanding. That opened the door for me to finally trust. Which I now recognize as therapy. Then he started calling me out on my bullshit by saying exactly what needed to be said, like a person who truly cares.

What I know now is also therapy. Sean found my darkness, he pulled out deep secrets and I would not be heading toward a better place without him (Sean, don’t get a big head over this).”

- 32 year old, single mother.

Testimonials

"One day I heard a podcast with Sean. He was talking about childhood trauma and its effects on adult life. What Sean was discussing resonated with me. So I immediately reached out.

After my initial conversation with Sean, I knew that what he was suggesting was a path for me to improve my overall lifestyle, mental state, and health. I was surprised how quickly Sean determined what my deeply, rooted issues were.

I am very grateful to Sean. For his wisdom and powerfully timed words that he has imparted on me throughout my journey with him.
There are few people today who are gifted like Sean, and more importantly, who have the courage to actually undertake the path themselves.”

- 53 year old, male.
