Welcome! My name is Christie Morgan and I am a relational trauma therapist in Boulder and online throughout Colorado.
Psychotherapist in Boulder, CO
Supervised by Jeffrey Cook, LPC 16349
I specialize in helping couples navigate codependency, attachment wounds, infidelity, and betrayal trauma. I help you develop skills so that you can feel seen and heard in your relationship. You will learn to repair your attachment wounds and move from distrust to deepened intimacy. You will begin to release codependency so that you can be deeply connected to your partner while remaining rooted in your own sense of self.
I specialize in relational trauma. I begin by helping you feel safe and grounded through a combination of mindfulness, regulation techniques, and DBT skills. Your body and mind will become free to process your trauma as we journey from anxiety and shame toward reclaiming the forgotten parts of you, embracing the life you want to live, and embodying your authentic self. Alongside listening and processing, I use Internal Family Systems and a narrative approach to support you in this process.
Have you experienced rejection because of your race, gender, or sexuality and are exploring what living as your authentic self looks like? Or are you wrestling with your faith as a result of experiencing the effects of racism, sexism, or other forms of injustice within your faith community? In our sessions, you will receive support in releasing the painful messages in your life. Together, we will sit in the tension and reconcile all parts of you so that you can embody authentic self with joy.
I help clients heal from the effects of systemic oppression and rejection that they experience because of their sexuality, gender identity, or racial identity. If you have experienced rejection in your family or faith community for having a particular identity, I am here to support you as we release the shaming, painful messages in your life. Together, we will sit in the tension and reconcile all parts of you so that you can embody your authentic self with joy and compassion.
I approach therapy through an attachment lens. At the core my work as a counselor is my belief that we are made for relationship and that healing happens in the context of relationship. Together, we will support you in developing secure attachments in your relationships and healing attachment wounds that you have faced in your life.
I approach therapy from a trauma-informed lens. I give you the resources to feel stable and grounded in your life so that we can do the deep healing work of processing the difficult seasons in your life. I approach trauma therapy holistically by using a combination of somatic and mindfulness approaches. By helping the body feel safe and regulated, your mind will begin to open up to the healing process.
I approach couples therapy from an attachment lens. I believe that your partner can be an important resource in the healing process. By developing a secure attachment, safety, and the deep sense of being seen and known, you will begin to feel more deeply connected to your partner. I combine practical tools with deep emotion-focused work to help you solidify the strength and connection in your relationship.
