Stewart Morgan, LAMFT, LAC
Stewart is a licensed associate marriage and family therapist and a licensed associate counselor. With these two licenses, Stewart has the training and credentials to use couples therapy, family therapy, and individual therapy to address a range of issues. He primarily focuses on treating marital conflict, relationship issues, parenting issues, anxiety, depression, childhood stress, and trauma related issues.
Stewart’s approach to therapy is unique and well suited for complex family dynamics and personal histories. This is because he combines cognitive behavioral therapy, the leading evidenced based approach for most mental health issues, with systemic therapy, the approach of considering not just the person, but their relationships too. His approach strives to bring out people’s strengths and put into place concrete plans to help people be grounded in themselves and have safe, trusting, and supportive relationships.
Stewart received his master’s degree in art therapy from George Washington University. He went on to complete a post-degree certificate program in marriage and family therapy at the Forest Institute of Professional Psychology. Stewart also has specialized training in the use of Gottman Method Couples Therapy. While Stewart is now a clinical therapist at BHSA’s outpatient clinic, he has previously worked in private practice as well as home-based and residential settings.
When asked how he sees his role as a therapist, Stewart says “it’s an amazing honor to be someone’s therapist and I take that role very seriously. Therapy is a big step for people because it means they are taking a risk with being vulnerable and making changes in their lives. No matter the reason someone is coming to therapy, I always want the people I work with to feel accepted and validated. This really sets the stage for us working together as a team and moving towards all the potential that lies ahead for them.”
