Morgan Wright, MA, LPCC
– Therapist –
I was born and raised in Colorado, and my favorite place to be is in the Rocky Mountains. While I love to hike, I also find peace just sitting outside to draw or paint with watercolors.
I also really enjoy anime, playing video games, and love spending time with my pets! I’ve owned several rats throughout my life and also have a gecko named Toph, but dream about one day having more exotic pets like birds and other rodents or reptiles.
“I believe in empowering those I work with to rewrite their own narrative through creating a safe space for non-judgmental, honest and hopeful conversation that ultimately reflects back to them their inherent value and worth.”
I first completed a BA in Psychology from CU Denver, and went on to earn an MA in Counseling from Regis University.
I planned to be a therapist for a long time, so I first became an ABA therapist (behavior therapist) for children with Autism, and I really developed a passion and understanding for this culture and community. I have additional experience working in a psychiatric hospital setting, as well as a residential facility for children that were victims of abuse, and a halfway house for folks recovering from Substance Use Disorder.
I have learned tremendously from each of my prior experiences and these experiences have all shaped me to be the clinician that I am. I work primarily with children and teenagers, and I specialize in working with those with a neurodivergence, such as Autism or ADHD.
Therapy with me is very laid back and casual – I like to start with natural conversation and follow important topics as they come up. When it comes to working through the problems that arise, I typically use a mix of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Narrative Therapy.
One method I use for this is drawing attention to specific thoughts you have, and how it impacts your feelings and behaviors. Then together, we can explore ways to alter the habits or patterns, and take steps to make the change.
I like to guide people of all ages as they gain confidence to find themselves and embrace who they are, and love to help clients discover their passion and voice. I love to help clients gain the self-awareness to recognize their needs, as well as build skills to communicate these needs, too.
“Therapy is a source of empowerment. I want to see you heal and reclaim your joy!”
