Here at Morgan Mental Health, our providers are experienced in helping individuals with depression, stress relief, crisis resolution, anger management, couples counseling, and many other issues. To provide the best care possible, we generally follow a three-phased therapeutic process, which includes specific treatment steps tailored to each person’s unique needs. While we understand that each person’s experience in counseling/therapy will be different, we hope to provide some clarity on what to expect throughout the process. Thank you for considering us as part of your mental health wellness journey.
The 3 Phases of Our Therapeutic Process
People sometimes assume that their problems are relatively minor and can be solved alone, or with the help of friends & family. However, our mental health professionals are trained to help solve problems. They work on guiding the identification of mental health concerns and find reliable methods for improvement. Our providers will generally follow a 3 phased therapeutic process. Each phase contains specific treatment steps and while each person’s experience in counseling/therapy will vary, the following will give you an idea of what to expect through the process.
The Beginning Phase
The Action Phase
The Decision Phase

Most people feel an immense relief after the first appointment. Because they experience a partial release of a buildup of emotion.
Phase 2 - The Action Phase of our Therapeutic Process
During the second phase a person will explore their thoughts and feelings as the counselor/therapist helps foster awareness, facilitate insights and work on building the therapeutic relationship. Focusing on behavior change, rehearsal and decision making, the counselor/therapist will work with the person to develop new skills and strategies, while guiding goal setting, modification and evaluation of the process.
Phase 3 - The Decision Phase of our Therapeutic Process
The last phase for a course of therapy. The person feels confident about the skills and strategies received from therapy, Together with their therapist, they have evaluated the effectiveness of therapy and decide to either continue or end therapy. A person does not have to be completely symptom-free at the end of therapy, they should, feel good about the support system set in place as well as more confident about responding to triggers and the hurdles they encounter in day-today life.
