HI, I’M MORGAN
Hello, my name is
I grew up in a large family, where conflict was the norm and finding your voice meant being the loudest person in the room.
My parent’s careers were rooted in health care, and seeing them serve people in meaningful ways left lasting impressions on me as well as my siblings. We were always a family of givers, but had our share of medical trauma, divorce and relational conflict in those impressionable years. It left defeat and fear in our path until we found our own repairs down the road.
I’ve been on the other side of the chair as a youth, adult, and partner. Finding the ability to look back on these years and revisit what I bring into my own life and relationship offers us a shared experience/opportunity.
There aren’t many family-based therapists in the Dallas Metroplex, and I find it odd, since DFW is such a family-centric place. To me this is a need that must be met, so it’s become a passion in my life.
It takes great courage and vulnerability to come to a “stranger” for help. I believe you can’t get the benefits if you don’t take the risk, and It won’t be long until I shift from stranger to a guide you can trust.
That’s why, from the start, trust is built on both sides as we navigate and grow through the messy parts of life. It is truly an honor to walk with you through the tough seasons. It gives me joy knowing that you’re willing to go through trials with me. To see the resolve and healing is so worth it.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist my desire is to help families find their growth through treatment of relational issues, life transitions, challenging developmental stages, or coping with a chronic or acute medical condition or a disability.
We’ll go on a journey together that should ultimately end with your family taking renewed authority over their lives.

Education + Certifications
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who works with families, couples, and individuals at Girls to Women and Young Men’s Health and Wellness in McKinney, TX.
Previously, I trained at UT Southwestern Medical Center Family Studies Center, McKinney Neuropsychology, and Children’s Medical Center. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master of Science in Human Development and Family Science with a Specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy from Oklahoma State University.
My master’s degree holds accreditation with the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE), with solid research and clinical training. While attending the master’s program, I practiced in a family services outpatient clinic as well as a primary care family medicine setting. Throughout these training opportunities, I’ve gained a wealth of experience developing a thorough biopsychosocial-spiritual assessment and collaborative treatment approach with my work. Specifically, while working at Great Plains Family Medicine in Oklahoma City, I utilized my training in Medical Family Therapy to provide brief integrated care and traditional therapy in order to treat clients from this holistic approach effectively.
In terms of theoretical orientation and typical treatment approaches, I utilize a client-centered lens while offering direct feedback and guidance. I also include Systems Theory and Contextual Therapy. I also have specialized training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)—an attachment-based therapy for couples—and filial play therapy—an attachment-based therapy for parent-child relationships.
I enjoy working with couples and am a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator—a curriculum-based program tailored for couples prior to marriage or during their marriage. My training and experience offer a balanced, active, and supportive environment for the growth you desire.
