Jamie Morgan, MA, LPC
Hi, and thanks for stopping by. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to talk with you. I’ve been counseling marriages and seeing individuals since 2007. Whether you are facing anxiety, depression, grief, marriage difficulties, problems with anger, job dissatisfaction, feeling sad or just “not yourself”, substance abuse issues, or something traumatic has happened, I will be able to guide you to a place you are happy and comfortable again. Life may never go back to the way it was, but together, we will get to a place where the new normal is comfortable. I want you to be happy with your life and enjoy the life you’re living.
I’m an eclectic style counselor. What that means is that I use more than one particular modality to treat my clients. The benefit to you the client is that you are served by someone who has more than just one tool in his toolbox. When receiving counseling, it is important to to find a counselor who meets you exactly where you are in life and gives you what you need through proven techniques, not just with one specific technique that may or may not fit your situation. This is exactly what I do. My approach to counseling comes from many different counseling theories. I believe that it is important to focus on the here and now, emphasizing future actions, behaviors, and thoughts, rather than deeply exploring the past. While the past has brought us where we are today, how you believe today and how you act today is of more importance. I believe in being directive and intentional in all aspects of therapy.
