Written by T.E. on Jun 14, 2021 after therapy with Janet for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, and adhd

Dr. Morgan is an excellent therapist.
I have been in therapy on and off for about 20 years and have worked with many different types of therapists. Hands down Dr. Morgan is by far the best I have ever worked with. She is truly exceptional. Kind, compassionate and most importantly requires her clients to take an active role in their well being. She provides a variety of worksheets and uses Choice Theory as a way to assist clients in developing the skills needed to live a mentally, emotionally and physically healthy life. After less than a year of therapy I feel more prepared to navigate my life in a healthy way.

Written by H.E. on Mar 08, 2021 after therapy with Janet for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, and coping with life changes

I feel very comfortable talking with Dr. Morgan. She not only listens to me, but hears me… she talks me through the emotional mess that I have swirling about in my heart and mind, and doesn’t make me feel like less of a person because of the trauma that I have gone through in my life. She is helping me dig and understanding on a deeper level Who I am, how to love myself, and how to let go of the past. I am thankful that God placed her in my life, at just the right time! And I look forward to the continued healing within my own heart and mind!

Genuinely positively life-altering. That’s the easiest way to describe my experience with Dr M. Learning all about being aware of feelings without being controlled by them, turning thoughts, needs, and desires into actions and goals, focusing on forward movement and bettering my self. I can’t say enough about her care, encouragement, and teaching. Greater than I ever could have imagined a counseling experience to be.

Dr. Morgan has the experience and approach I need for my severe CPTSD, depression, and anxiety. So glad to get practical help instead of silly platitudes for a change!

Shes not here for the paycheck. She really cares. This isnt work for her and it shows through her willingness to listen and readiness to help you work through it your way. Shes the only therapist i have felt confident with and can trust her guidance.

So far I have only had one session and it went very well. Dr. Morgan is a great listener, and understands how I feel. She also gave great recommendations for me to get better, and she is very insightful.

Although still early in our therapy journey together, I can easily profess that Dr. Morgan has been extremely helpful, comforting, and encouraging, and I'm extremely thankful to have been paired with her in this process. I look forward to our sessions and utilizing the tools she provides me with. I aways feel better following a session and I'm excited for what the future has to hold as we continue forward.

Written by R.A. on Feb 26, 2020 after therapy with Janet for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I am so happy to have found Dr. Morgan. I am just beginning therapy, but I feel heard and understood. I have been given techniques to help cope with anxiety which have helped me. She also very quickly picked up on unresolved grief that I didn't realize is still weighing so heavily on me. She is a perfect match for my specific needs.

I absolutely love her! I have been extremely nervous about doing therapy and she makes it feel like we’re friends. Even when she was out of town she still had time to text me. She knows what she’s talking about and will do anything to help.

Dr. Morgan is absolutely wonderful! She has an experienced view on how our minds and bodies work while recognizing that every individual is unique. She has helped me tremendously in finding new, healthy ways of coping with anxiety, stress, depression and so much more. I will be forever grateful!

Written by M.A. on Dec 15, 2018 after therapy with Janet for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, and self esteem

Dr. Morgan is one of the most caring, competent, wonderful counselors/people I have ever had the privilege of knowing and working with. She literally helped me to come back to life. She helped me to focus on what matters and how to handle all of what life throws at me, the good and the bad. I will forever be grateful for the tools, drive, and perspective our sessions have provided me. I can not ever express how thankful I am. Dr Morgan gets every gold star, 10, A+, high five I could ever give.

Work with me!
