    Ashley Morgan, MA, Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

    Our close relationships, whether they be with family, friends or are more romantic in nature, play a major role in shaping each and every unique individual. This vital impact that our relationships have on our day-to-day wellness is what drove me towards wanting to study and practice marriage and family therapy. I have seen and experienced how these relationships can impact many of our life’s facets, such as self-esteem, what we value, and how we determine the roles we play in everyday life. Mostly, I have been intrigued by the impact that our relationships have on us after we have endured a traumatic event, and how so often it is not the event itself that we need to heal from but instead, the way those who are close respond to us when it feels like the world has been turned upside down.

    While I have witnessed this distress brought on by adversity, I have also witnessed the joys that follow reconnection after two partners have felt distanced from one another and, the tremendous growth that can take place when a couple learns how to communicate and hear each other’s needs. 

    My goal is to meet each individual, couple, or family at their unique starting point and to model a safe, non-judgmental and empathetic relationship so that we may work together to achieve your personal goals, enhance your mental health and explore what potential your close relationships possess.
