Morgan MacCarl is a Registered Clinical Counsellor located in the Okanagan who currently provides telephone and secure-video counselling services. Her specialties include working with youth, life-transitions, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and anger management. She also has interest and experience working with chronic health issues, trauma, abuse, gender identity, eating disorders, and addictions. Recognized by her clients as having a calming presence, she is empathetic, respectful, and non-judgmental. She believes that we all do the best we can with what we’ve got in the moment, and knows that sometimes our lives look very different than what we’d like them to.
Change happens whether we feel ready for it or not and life can present even more difficulties regardless of how overwhelmed we already feel. Using strategies and techniques from modalities including Cognitive-based Stress Reduction, Somatic Therapy, Response-based Practice, and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Morgan provides a balance between working on concrete strategies, exploring your past, and connecting to a sense of meaning or purpose in life.
Morgan knows what a challenge it can be to reach out for help. To see and experience one’s life as overwhelming or perhaps desperately underwhelming can be scary, and many of us experience a sense of shame. Asking for help takes bravery.
Morgan’s approach to counselling helps her clients connect with their inner strength and sense of knowing, empowering them to make the changes they want to see, and to find inner peace within their experiences.
Morgan has a Master’s degree in Counselling and is a member of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. She has eight years of experience working and volunteering for community and government agencies with children, youth, individual adults, couples and families. When not working she enjoys doing yoga, hiking with her dog, and being outside with her family and friends.
