Morgan Barber, LCSW, has been providing psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and families since 2007. Morgan’s areas of expertise include: relationship discord, intimacy, sexual identity, anxiety and worry, grief and bereavement, spiritual/existential struggles, trauma and abuse histories, end of life issues, depression and feeling stuck, substance abuse, life transitions, and gender issues.
Morgan’s approach is integrative, experiential and collaborative. He provides a compassionate, non-judgmental environment that values an honest exploration of emotional issues while respecting the self-determination of each client to select the focus and depth of their work together. Morgan devotes himself to the task of understanding his clients because he believes genuine change and transformation will only occur after one feels understood. His clients develop perspective, insight, and direction that they can apply to their lives even beyond the initial motive for seeking counseling.
Morgan often employs the Hakomi method, guiding clients to mindfully observe the entire mind and body experience that they are having in the present moment. Additionally, narrative therapy, psychodynamic theory, transpersonal theory, and eco-systemic perspectives inform the way he works with clients.
Morgan has extensive training through the Couples Institute using a developmental model with couples and individuals focused on their interpersonal growth. In addition, he has completed Level 1 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
During his personal time, Morgan likes to explore the lakes, mountains and coastline of Maine with family and friends.
