Morgan North, BA
Morgan North completed her BA in Human Development and Family Studies at UConn followed by a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Southern Connecticut State University, in a graduate program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Education (COAMFTE). In the past, she worked at The Family Clinic and interned with the Behavioral Wellness Clinic (BWC) while she completed her MFT. She primarily treats obsessive-compulsive disorder, general stress, anxiety, LGBTQ issues, couples, and families. At BWC, Morgan utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP), as well as elements from internal family systems (IFS), emotionally focused couples therapy (EFCT), and systems theory.
Morgan has a genuine, warm presence and strives to create a space free from judgment. She values honesty and prioritizes the relationship between her and the person she is with so they can work as a team to discover and achieve goals. She believes in every individual's ability to change, especially when they are able to get support, and honors the trust that clients put in our hands.
Caring for Couples
Morgan is deeply interested by the impact of societal and familial influences on an individual's mental health and working towards relieving everyday symptoms while addressing the roots of those symptoms to create lasting change for her clients. She is also interested in addressing the sexual concerns of individuals and couples which is something that drew her to seek an internship with the Behavioral Wellness Clinic to learn from the knowledgeable clinicians here.
Her passion to join this field began when she and her closest friends and family went through mental health crisis and mental health professionals felt like the only beacon of hope. Therapists helped her and her loved ones immensely and she is committed to learning, growing, and expanding her skills in order to give hope to anyone in that same frightening position.
