This is the first therapist I've used so don't have a really good reference. But i appreciate how dr Moran is attentive , supportive and offers great guidance for what I'm going through. It's hard enough to deal with the difficult things in life, but with dr Moran i feel it's possible.

I could tell very quickly that Dr. Morgan cares and is interested in getting to know me. She is very supportive and listens to how you need/receive help and feedback. Very flexible with scheduling and responding to messages and journal entries. She also provides additional worksheets and activities if requested. I am really enjoying working with her!
