Morgan Gulbranson
Morgan Gulbranson, MA, Marriage & Family Therapist

I believe that everyone deserves to be heard and given a chance to tell their story in their own words and perspective. I use techniques from Narrative Family Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Play Therapy but I do not limit myself. I understand each individual requires different needs and expectations from their therapy experience and therefore believe in customizing my therapeutic approach to meet each individual's unique needs.

My experience in the behavioral health field varies from working with the mentally challenged and developmentally delayed individuals, group homes, substitute teaching, and day treatment for behaviorally challenged children and adolescents. Currently I offer therapy for individuals, couples, and families of all ages. I am here to help individuals set clear, reasonable goals and help achieve them with guidance. I acknowledge that change can be intimidating and admire the courage it takes to begin the process. I am open and look forward to meeting any and all individuals, families, and couples seeking therapy.
