I laughed when I read that someone called this marriage counselor delightful. That is not really a quality you should be looking for in a marriage counselor. I am sure that Lynn thinks she is very delightful because she likes to talk about herself and put on airs.  She's really boring and stuck up. All of that would be okay if she knew what she was doing but she doesnt. She tries to charm her clients (and she's not even that charming but she like to overstep appropriate boundaries) because otherwise they woudl leave becaise she obviously doesn't know what she is doing. She also doesn't seem to be worried when her work doesn't make things better because she thinks that her counseling should be a lifelong thing for the clients because she's so wonderful people should pay her for poor results and just keep seeing her forever so she has something to do. She likes to control clients and make them dependent on her so she can feel powerful. It's very disturbing. I wonder what her personal life must be like that she feels the need to do this. She also has terrible judgement and has made some disasterous suggestions. There are countless marriage counselors out there and some are great and some are awful. Unfortunately the awful ones can continue to ruin peoples lives and get away with it. You may have a harder time getting an appointment with a competent good marriage therapist with a great reputation but be patient because it is worth it. That's why they are so busy it's because the good ones are worth the wait. if you want to waaste your time with someone who thinks she is delightful and has a God complex and is all style and no substance then go see Lynn Merkel. She'll make you worse off and then convince you taht you have to keep seeing her indefinitely. Very pathetic and dishonorable.
