Merilou is passionate about helping people let go and move forward. There is nothing sweeter than witnessing someone overcome what has been holding them back; perhaps for a lifetime, or maybe it has only felt that way! Seeing the light shine in someone’s eyes when they realize they have the power and the tools to change is priceless!

You’ll want to schedule with Merilou if you want help with addictive habits, limiting beliefs, fears, stress management, relationships, body image or any life changes. During a session she combines counseling and coaching with energy healing. Your work together will be fun; and yet you will go deep to the root of the issue causing interference in your present life, and eliminate the energy it holds. This allows you to move forward more quickly and permanently. If you are tired of talking about your challenges and are ready to change and to move forward, this could be what you are looking for!

Merilou holds a Bachelor Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Business from the University of Texas at San Antonio. She is a certified DEH (Dynamic Energy Healer) Practitioner, Reiki Master Teacher and Professional Certified Coach. She has been working in this field for 12 years.

  • I had been searching for a counselor type person to help me walk through a few issues I felt had been holding me in a state of grief, anxiety and depression. I was drawn to Merilou Hundley and am ever so grateful for the work we have done together. Merilou has helped me in ways I didn’t even realize I needed. I approached her with what I thought were the current day issues causing me trouble and her compassion and intuitive self knew the direction to take me in order to reach the heart of the matter. Together we discovered energetic states that needed healing, original traumas that I’d carried throughout my 56 years of life and so much more. She cleared away the negativity that loomed around these core disturbances and helped me to establish energetic boundaries to use daily. The current day issues that I believed were the concerns have all disappeared. Merilou is a remarkable healer and I absolutely recommend. I now know who to reach out to if/when my life gets cloudy and I need to get a tune up. Thank you so, so much for the love and healing energy you shared with me.

  • In 2010 I was diagnosed with severe sleep fragmentation and started taking Zolpidem (aka Ambien) on a nightly basis. Because it is considered a controlled substance, I was put under a lot of pressure to get off of the drug by my doctors, but was never given any support or tools to do so. Upon a recommendation from a friend, I started seeing Merilou Hundley. She applied Dynamic Energy Healing techniques to get to the root of why different aspects of my life were making sleep a struggle. After a few months of these sessions, it was time to tackle the challenge. For five consecutive days she applied DEH and Reiki techniques while I gradually reduced my nightly dosage of Zolpidem. By the end of one week, I was sleeping unaided for the first time in four years! Merilou is knowledgeable, professional, comforting, and a joy to work with. She provided the support and tools I needed to finally rid myself of my sleep medication dependence.

  • Merilou, I just want to thank you for helping me find my strength. It was there, just like you said. Releasing the negative energy and any associated fears has made it so much easier for me to face the fears I was afraid of and to face risks. I no longer fear change, whether it turns out as envisioned or not. I just see it as another opportunity. I’m open to possibilities. Most important, though, I know I can rely upon me. The list we made at the beginning, I carry with me everyday. Reading it reaffirms for me where I want to go with my life and assures me I will get there. Again, thanks for all your help.

  • My work with Merilou made all the difference in my successful job search, which had been going on for quite some time. It is amazing how, once I began moving blocked/stuck energy and healing old wounds, that a job that met almost 100% of my criteria showed up for me. I truly believe had I not done the Dynamic Energetic Healing work with Merilou that I would have missed the great job that I have now.

  • I had been "trying" to lose weight for about a year and a half with absolutely no results when Merilou told me about her services. She said she could help remove blocks to success, and at that moment I realized that I definitely had something blocking my progress. I had a DEH session with Merilou where we cleared out any blocks I had to losing weight and changing my habits. We also set some goals, and Merilou let me check in with her weekly to track my progress. I saw almost immediate results. I was easily able to change the bad habits I'd been clinging to, and I started getting a lot more exercise. I lost 12 lbs in less than 2 months! Merilou is so gentle, positive, and supportive, and I would recommend her services to anyone.

Here are a few things Merilou shared with us about herself.
  1. I grew up in a small town in Texas that no longer exists. It isn't even a ghost town, it is totally gone. They say you can't go home again? No kidding!
  2. I love going to the Oregon coast and wine tasting with my friends (who actually know what they are talking about). I can never retain what I learn! But I know what I like when I taste it!
  3. Whatever positive change I can make in my world -- creating a piece of beautiful art (even if I'm the only one that enjoys it), helping a person to embrace their authentic self, or if I can simply make my 7-year old granddaughter giggle -- then I have done something and I am truly blessed!
  4. I need beauty around me. I have to live where it is green, where I can see mountains and flowers.
  5. I don't buy into the belief that humanity is going downhill. I believe our world has the potential for Peace and Love. I think people are basically good; and help others when faced with that situation. I believe that together we can change our collective vibration and change from fear to love!
