ABOUT

You might consider trying a temporary break or recess from the profound personal battle which you are keeping at bay... consider at least a trial change from the  isolation created by this battle...enter therapy... the dialogue about what matters.

 

 
  

Jana’s practice brings together a deep caring for the human condition, philosophical interests in peoples' stories and lives as they relate to family life, joys, loss, trauma, grief, exhaltation, personal growth. She has keen observation of self and others. Attention is paid to the ongoing rebuilding of a narrative which allows for a new cohesion and life purpose.

 

There are many important conversations to be had in this life.

 

The specific treatment offered is individualized and based upon each person's preferences and issues.

 

On-going rapport with treating psychiatrist is possible and sometimes indicated.

 

 

Extreme States/psychosis  

Jana Morgan has a sub specialty of providing treatment to clients who experience symptoms associated with extremes states. Sometimes a historic or current diagnosis of mood disorder with psychotic features, schizoaffective disorder and associated symptoms, diagnosis of schizophrenia, as well as mind experiences and drug related psychosis are known to the client.  She also helps people struggling with wide mood fluctuations characteristic of bipolar states - at times due to circumstantial life events and trauma. Dual diagnosis clients welcome depending on stages of recovery.
