Admired for her authenticity, Meryl Hershey Beck, a licensed professional clinical counselor, is appreciated and respected for her perseverance in doing the hardcore work and her clarity in finding no-kidding solutions to end the misery of addictions. She spent the first half of her life as a closet eater, gaining weight and feeling overwrought. Once she became active in 12 Step support groups, the bingeing – fueled by anxiety, low self-esteem, and the desire to escape – started to wane. Intent on uncovering the root cause of her overeating, Meryl began to incorporate other modalities in her quest for self-understanding. As a counselor, teacher, and author, Meryl joyfully shares these many tools and techniques that skyrocket personal growth and alleviate emotional eating. An authority in this field, she has presented at workshops and conferences internationally.
Meryl Beck became my friend and 12-step program sponsor in 1984 when I moved from Houston, Texas, back home to Cleveland, Ohio. She taught me compassion, commitment and dedication to the process of healing myself. She has always been a wonderful example, and has continued to encourage me to keep searching for, and trying out any possible practice that could help my recovery journey in any way. I have watched her grow and mature into what we all work the 12 steps to become – a self-loving, nurturing and caring person who opens her heart to any who need comfort and support. I am so pleased to know and love Meryl! I am forever grateful to have her in my life!

Dear Meryl, Thank you for getting me away from that tarantula. And for so quickly helping me “get a grip.” I cannot even imagine how EFT works so quickly but, boy, am I a believer. I may not ever be able to hug hairy, scary spiders but at least I don't run screaming away from them any more. And I don't stand at a ridiculously far distance away from one, paralyzed from terror, or shaking and crying. Thanks so much for your quick thinking and for your compassion. You've really helped me with considerable panic. I am truly grateful!!!
Most sincerely, Jan Mooney
