    Dr. Wendy Morrison

    Meet Dr. Wendy Morrison

    I love helping people identify their “stuck” points and make lasting changes to improve their experiences personally, at work, in college or graduate school, and in their relationships. I have dedicated my career to providing high-quality therapy and assessment services with young adults and professionals. 

    My therapeutic approach is integrative, depending on the needs of the individual client and their goals. I draw on evidence-based therapies including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Self-Compassion, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for Trauma, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Trauma-Focused CBT, and Feminist Therapy. I strongly value offering culturally-sensitive and diversity-affirming therapy, and am continually striving to honor my clients’ diverse identities.

    Being a psychologist is my purpose and passion. I find personal and professional satisfaction guiding people towards positive changes and witnessing them achieve more fulfilling lives.

    The greatest reward about being a psychologist is celebrating when my clients make progress. I am committed to helping you identify your values and goals, and make progress towards discovering and nurturing your best and true self.

    Personal Background.

    My own growth through personal life struggles is what helps me relate so deeply with clients. I have compassion for people and bring supportive and encouraging energy to sessions.

    I have a natural ability and practical training to:

    • Help you identify what you are feeling
    • Collaborate with you to set goals and help you reach them
    • Explain mental health symptoms in an easy to understand way
    • Help clients heal their past and manage the present

    People who know me often say that I am a good listener who can be fully present for people’s stories, even if they are difficult stories.

    Outside of work, I love to spend hours in coffee shops, see live theater and music, and expand my understanding of what makes us human through travel and online media. I’m originally from the east coast, but have made a home and life here amongst the amazing Rocky Mountain Front Range.
