Morning View Family Therapy


Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness

Are you stressed out, anxious or depressed? Does it seem like you can’t get your feet under you? Are you struggling with healing after a traumatic event? Have you tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and realized you need help from someone else? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by being here. We know seeking help can be hard. You’ve likely been debating seeking help for months, if not years, but we’re so glad you have taken the courageous step of being here.
Together we can work to help equip you with the necessary tools to help you face and overcome your challenges. Whether you’re struggling with overcoming anxiety and depression, marital and relationship struggles, or trauma and ptsd, it is important that you know you don’t have to be alone in this journey.
We have the experience to help you achieve your goals, overcome these struggles, and live a more fulfilling and meaningful life. We understand no two individuals are the same, and we tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand the root cause of your struggles and address them with long-lasting strategies, helping you get closer to the life you’ve always wanted. If you’re ready to work towards the life you’ve always wanted, we’re ready when you are. Contact us today and let’s get to work.

We're here for you.

Once you choose hope, anything is possible.
We often talk about setting intentions for what we desire, but when we don’t see our manifestations unfold, we get discouraged and actually cause resistance to occur. Finding time for gratitude and faith is a key essential to increase positive energy and cultivate what we are seeking for.

Monica Chung, M.A., AMFT

Life is beautiful, but it can also be difficult. It can throw unexpected challenges at you, whether that's stress, a new transition, depression, anxiety, loss, and/or a traumatic experience.

Dylan Cooper, M.S., AMFT

Our emotions can relate to a specific event, be triggered by our personality or outlook, or by our biological or genetic makeup. It’s common to feel anxious or depressed, like you are in a crisis, or questioning your relationships.Counseling is a way to understand why we feel certain ways. It’s also a way we can change our behavior and outlook to become “unstuck” from unproductive ways of thinking, feeling and acting.
The development of a supportive, therapeutic relationship promotes working through issues so the individual develops new skills to reduce distress, reach greater peace, and strengthens one connection with themselves.

I’ll encourage you to explore yourself and emotions through body based therapeutic techniques, discuss patterns of behavior and which patterns may no longer work for you, and provide a person-centered approach to therapy. Through therapy you will develop a deeper understanding of yourself, generate skills for problem solving and emotional regulation, and grow to be more confident and content.Through these conversations you will gain insight about your thoughts and feelings. Putting your feelings into words helps give you control, leads to resolving inner conflicts, and allows you to develop skills to meet whatever challenges come your way.
