Online counseling for your safety and protection
Hello! I am Todd Morgan, owner of New Life Counseling! I am as close to a Colorado Native as you can get. Moving to Colorado as a young child (1970ish), I have spent the majority of my life right in Loveland, other than the years I spent in the Corps. I am a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and to this day I will tell you being a Marine is one of the greatest accomplishments of my life. I have also spent time in the automotive service business, student loan servicing business, and now my business is helping individuals and couples live healthier lives.
I work with clients dealing with an array of problems and one thing I continue to discover is that everyone deals with cognitive distortions. Distortional thoughts are like weeds planted in a garden, they choke out the plants of peace and joy. Everything a person does begins with a thought (conscious or subconscious) and thoughts will determine feelings, behaviors, and the consequences a person experiences, good or bad. Therefore, when we struggle with distortional thinking, a person will struggle with adverse feelings, behaviors that cause conflict or self-sabotage, and consequences that are unnecessary. Furthermore, the way a person thinks will have an effect on the structure of the brain. Neurological pathways are created by the brain that will support the way the person thinks, whether the thinking is beneficial or not.
I am a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (CBT) who is also trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and using these modalities of treatment, I help my clients pinpoint and correct problematic cognitive processes. Utilizing psychoeducation, I help my clients gain knowledge into how the brain works and why a person gets stuck in unwanted patterns of thought and/or behavior. Many clients come to counseling frustrated with themselves because of their inability to change on their own. I collaborate with my clients to discover how they arrived at the place they are and how to move past that. Clients complete counseling with the ability to assess their own issues and create new, healthier habits to manage life and life’s stressors.
