Dr. Morse’s practice is limited to individual therapy for adults on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Her areas of expertise are depression, anxiety, and substance use and abuse and trauma disorders. Using a psychodynamic and psychoanalytic approach she integrates complimentary methodologies and techniques so that she can meet the unique qualities of every patient. With compassion and understanding she endeavors to help each person to build on their “inner self” and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing. A process where you walk the path together to heal the pain while discovering new awakenings and opportunities.
