Morgan Gorst, MFT Intern
“Transformation occurs only when we remember, breath by breath, year after year, to move toward our emotional distress without condemning or justifying our experience.” — Pema Chödrön
I am an MFT student intern from the Couple and Family Therapy program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, School of Medicine. In my practice, I follow a humanistic and client-centered approach. I am currently training in EMDR, and strive to be trauma-informed and social-justice oriented.
I most closely use Rogerian therapy, Experiential therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) with partnerships and families. Additionally, I have a weight-neutral practice that is committed to Health At Every Size.
I completed my undergrad at UNLV and graduated Cum Laude with a BA in psychology and neuroscience. During that time, I focused on human memory research, finding my place in the LGBT+ community, and learning about social justice and allyship.
I have learned that healing and growth is our right, and is inherent in all of us. We can achieve healing and growth by connecting with our inner-worlds, honoring our needs, and growing confidence in our self-efficacy. You are not alone, and we can achieve this together!
