A Bit About Morgan...
Hi there! My name is Morgan Vann (they/she pronouns), and I identify as a queer, pansexual, white, neurodiverse woman. I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Portland State University, and my Bachelor’s degree in sociology with an emphasis in gender and sexuality from the University of Oregon. I am passionate about working with individuals age 15+ from all walks of life! I’m particularly interested in working with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, exploring gender and sexual identities, self-compassion, interpersonal and relationship conflicts, spiritual identity, substance use, personality disorders, sense of self, chronic illness, and trauma.
My therapeutic approach always focuses on trauma informed care, and creating a safe space that feels centered around you and your goals. I use a variety of traditional modalities including Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Dialectical Behavioral therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Mindfulness, Narrative therapy, and more. I also enjoy incorporating more holistic approaches including ecotherapy, somatic methods, spiritual exploration, dream analysis, and other alternative practices. You’re wonderfully unique, and your therapeutic experience should be as well! Additionally, I come to this work from an intersectional feminist standpoint, and aim to carry awareness of how our well being is impacted by larger systems of power and oppression. I strive to address this through a therapy framework that is sex positive, gender affirming, anti-white supremacy, body-neutral, and oriented towards social justice.
As a counselor, it’s a gift to be able to hold space and honor folx throughout their mental health journey, and it’s my goal in our work together to provide a space that feels welcoming and embracing of your authentic self. My approach focuses on compassion, validation, and fostering self kindness through non-judgemental curiosity. I would be honored to be a part of your healing process, and look forward to knowing you!
