Clearing the Soul for Long-Lasting Change
I'm Matthew Morgan - I'm a short, bearded, geeky guy who is rarely found without his favorite hat and some sort of crazy decor (Lego keychains, Star Wars paraphernalia, and obscure movie references to name a few). I believe that every client - ever family - has a story. That story can often be sad and can find us missing some parts.
But when we can share our stories safely, we can finally open up for healing. We realize that we might be broken - but that's not our fault ... and it certainly doesn't mean we're crazy. But once we realize where things are broken, we can start to fix them. Counseling at Covenant isn't just about telling your problems, it's about working collaboratively to come up with solutions to calming anxiety, taming depression, and reconnecting with those who matter most to us.
Biographically, I've been married for 23 years. 13 of those, we struggled with infertility, the last 10 have been spent trying to handle our miracle baby (who now eats like we have to feed the 5000). We spend our time together, play Pokemon Go pretty regularly, and serve in our church (my wife helps with children and I enjoy playing cello on the worship team).
I began my career in ministry, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Ministries and Biblical Studies from Trinity Bible College in Ellendale, ND. I worked as a youth pastor and teacher. As I was working for a Master's Degree I found counseling and realized that I wanted to be in a position where I could help that one student who needed major help. So I earned my masters degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.
