Ellen Merker, LPC-IT, started Heart Consulting LLC in 2017, after seeing the need for more resources around sexual assault and domestic violence in the disability community. After receiving her Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Psychology, Ellen worked for over 5 years as a case manager and transition coordinator for adults with developmental disabilities, then as an IRIS Consultant. In 2015, she piloted a program with the Rape Crisis Center to provide education to young adults with developmental disabilities around healthy relationships. Ellen has been selected to present this work at two End Domestic Abuse WI conferences, as well as the Project SEARCH national conference, Circles of Life Conference, and Planned Parenthood Safe Healthy Strong Conference. Ellen is also honored to be a Brava Magazine 2019 Woman to Watch.
