Who We Are

MaryEllen M. Martyn LPC is the Founder of Hope In The Darkness dedicated to the healing of those who are still experiencing the emotional after effects from an abortion. Society has many opinions about this, but what matters here is that everyone is treated with respect and understanding.  Everyone deserves to find healing and peace. 

In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, MaryEllen offers a highly personalized approach tailored to each client's individual needs to help attain the personal growth and healing they’re striving for. Together with each client, MaryEllen works to develop strengths and achieve life goals. With over 19 years experience, MaryEllen has the talent and mastery skills to work on the most difficult of concerns. 


Everyone needs a little help and guidance at times, and therapy can be quite empowering. We all have struggles from time to time that simply overwhelm us and leave us less effective in our lives. It is never too late to start a journey that will reward you with an enjoyable life.   

The first counseling appointment is always the hardest, but I promise to make the process a warm and positive experience. I look forward to working with you and being a part of this journey. 

~MaryEllen McCloud, MS, LPC, BCNCC, BC-TMH
