Hello, I am a clinical social worker licensed in the state of Illinois. My passion has always been to help others. I have received training and supervision in the hospital, school, and community health setting. After working at a community health agency for a number of years, I felt that I would have more of an impact working in the school setting where I could consistently work with youth, staff, and families (a more ecological approach). I have supported clients in managing a variety of issues that affect quality of life such as, but not limited to, anxiety, ADHD, ASD, depression, trauma, homelessness, physical and sexual abuse, and addiction.
I have experience working with a wide demographic but I specialize in working with women coping with anxiety; and how anxiety impacts our relationships, work life, family, and our own self acceptance. As a therapist, my approach is to empower the individuals that I service through education, skill building, recognizing strengths, and collaborative goal setting. I want to offer a safe space to share your story, grow, and move towards better health. I look forward to hearing from you!

I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to help guide me through the loss of my partner. Morgan’s support was like a warm bath when you need it most.

We unfortunately had to stop our journey together but Morgan is amazing. She's a great listener, she gives wonderful advices/perspectives, she helped me organize my thoughts. I usually feel like my 'problems' aren't that bad but Morgan helped me see the validity behind my pain/trauma. Thank you Morgan!

Morgan is phenomenal! I have been working with her for a bit now and she is one of my favorite therapists to date. She is very good at listening to my concerns and allowing a collaborative process of addressing the problems I'm working through. She is also great at communication and being sure I am seen and heard. She is also very supportive in all the right ways. I highly recommend her if you're in need of a well rounded trauma informed therapist.
