Patricia Morgan, Counselling Therapist, MA CCC

It has been an honour to facilitate the healing of hundreds of clients presenting with depression, anxiety, negative self-talk, relationship conflict, despair, anger issues, and shame. As a seniorpreneur, I thrive by sharing my insights and journeying with clients as they gain new awareness of their resilient, lovable, and resourceful selves. One client shared, “It is like you are my personal flashlight bringing me the ability to see light.”

Story of a Calgary Therapist

At the young age of twenty-four my husband and I, already the parents of a two year old, adopted a beautiful six year old girl. We were Kelly’s fifth family, after a failed adoption and foster homes. My failures and challenges as a mother are described in Kelly’s and my book, Love Her As She Is: Lessons from a Daughter Stolen by Addictions. By age thirty I entered therapy. My anger rages were shaming me and hurting my gentle husband and our dear children. We were all in distress.

Self-reflection and deep dives into my painful childhood was often hard. However, realizing that I was not a bad or stupid person but an adult with unresolved issues from generational trauma and childhood emotional and physical abuse, was liberating. The rewards of healing were improved relationships, a deepened sense of gratitude, and increased confidence. I began to filter criticism and welcome helpful feedback, acknowledgment, support, and opportunities.

By the time I was age forty I had earned a MA in Humanistic and Clinical Psychology and started working with individuals, couples, families, and women’s groups.

Client Testimonials:

“Patricia was like a comforting light guiding me in and out of dark places in my past. The result was insight and healing, which continues to this day.” LR

“I have worked with many counsellors and professionals while experiencing very little lasting change. In the meantime guilt and shame left me playing small in my career. I can honestly say Patricia’s healing processes have been a life-changer. She is a difference-maker.” AB

“I feel so blessed and more empowered knowing that I don’t have to fix everyone, and I don’t even have the power to. I can only work on myself and that is truly liberating.” BK

Want to know what a therapy session looks like?
Here is a clip from an online session focused on Inner Child work. Notice how an image from a trauma treatment healing process, unfolds into an awareness of being seen but not heard as a child. Also, notice how  the reality of a child is separated from an adult’s freedom to do and be who we are, and  concludes with an affirmation of the client’s wisdom.

Health Insurance: My services are covered by several plans including Manulife, SunLife, Pacific Blue Cross, Equitable Life, and Greenshield.

One last note: Our culture encourages significant spending on appearance, electronics, new and shiny vehicles, and non-essentials. Yet, a small percentage of people invest in their internal world where pain, disconnect, and even shame eat at their well being. Please know you deserve to explore mending or healing those gnawing parts and to increase your moments of confidence, clarity, and peace.
