Background and Experience
I was born and raised in North Carolina where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work at Appalachian State University. During school, I interned as an Equine Assisted Psychotherapist Assistant at a youth residential treatment facility. After graduation, I accepted a full-time position working with youth as a therapeutic educational specialist. June 2016, I decided to branch out and fuel my adventurous spirit by moving to Portland! Gratefully, I was able to take a couple months off to explore the Pacific Northwest before taking on a full-time position with a non-profit working with families and children involved with child welfare. I worked at the non-profit for approximately three years before deciding to further my education. During graduate school, my practicum took place at the Center for Community Counseling where I was a part-time therapist intern. May 2020, I graduated with honors at Pacific University with my Master in Social work. Shortly after graduation, I received my level two Reiki certification and have been practicing the healing modality since.
"I'm really grateful for the rapport I established with Morgan. She is a gem and I appreciate her support!"
"Morgan created a comfortable and safe space for me to process and release some deep seeded trauma that I could not have done with her assistance."
