Thanks for stopping by to learn more about my practice. I’m Debonee Morgan, a licensed psychotherapist, and certified Spiritual Director, specializing with the LGBTQ community, addiction & recovery, depression, and faith issues… all with an artistic, imaginative approach. I identify as female and use "she/her" pronouns.
Serving the LGBTQ+ Community
Many of my clients identify as gay, lesbian, bi, trans or genderqueer. I’m familiar with the unique issues that come along with same sex relationships, working through your gender identity or orientation, the coming out process, transgender transitioning, dealing with family and work environments etc. You can learn more about the specifics here: Serving the LGBTQ Community
Addiction & Recovery
I am currently a therapist at Care and Counseling’s Intensive Outpatient Program. I lead the "Spirituality in Recovery" and "Family Education" Group, as well as conducting individual, couples and family therapy for those in recovery. You can learn more about the specifics here: Addiction & Recovery
Faith Issues & Spiritual Direction
SpWhen you’re talking about gender, orientation, or even just sex, you’re bound to butt up against issues about religion and the (sometimes wounding) things we’re told about God and ourselves. Many of my clients have been hurt by the church. As a certified Spiritual Director (like a minister, but not attached to a particular faith tradition, and very happy to talk to atheists), I have the background to approach ideas and feelings about religion, theology, cosmology, philosophy etc from an informed, but neutral, position. I don’t believe I know what’s right for *you*, but I believe that *you* know, and I’m here to support that.

I find most of the inspiration for the way I do therapy from Carl Jung. He was a psychological theorist who pioneered the use of symbols and imagery to help us learn more about ourselves, especially through interaction with the unconscious. In addition to
standard ‘talk therapy’ and thinking of relationships in a systemic context, I encourage clients to use their imaginations to access emotion, revision relationships, learn more about themselves, and nurture growth. You can learn more about the specifics here: Artistic Approach
