Morgan works from the viewpoint that all people have the capacity to truly heal, not simply manage and live with their pain and symptoms. Her approach to therapy is collaborative, client-centered, relational and respectful. In her view both therapist and client bring their own equally important knowledge and expertise to the work and are equal partners in the work of healing.
Morgan uses a blend of traditional trauma-informed psychodynamic psychotherapy and neurobiologically based approaches and brings 15 years of clinical experience working with everyone from people struggling with life transitions, grief, substance abuse and eating disorders, depression and anxiety as well as dissociative disorders and trauma.
Morgan received her Masters in Social Work from NYU in 2004 and did her initial training in trauma informed therapy at Safe Horizon Counseling Center in Brooklyn, NY. Since then Morgan has received further training from the Justice Resource Institute and for the past three years has focused on training in the Comprehensive Resource Model which is a is a neurobiologically based, affect-focused treatment model. The website for CRM is www.comprehensiveresourcemodel.com.
