FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

 

Tell me more?

My name is Morgan K. Overstreet. I believe that self-compassion, authenticity, perspective, and emotional support are the foundation for us, as human beings, to feel at peace within our minds, bodies, and souls. I formed my own mental health private practice with the sole purpose of serving BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities. As someone who lives at the intersections of those identities, I understood that having a therapist that can share and affirm your identities can be meaningful while navigating mental health concerns. I also became a therapist because from childhood through early adulthood, I had positive experiences and outcomes with every therapist I ever had. Moreover, I chose a career that I had passion for, felt naturally comfortable doing, and where I knew I could bring peace and comfort to others. In addition to being a therapist, I’m also a mother, daughter, and sister. These are all roles that I value. I formally studied Psychology, Anthropology, Sociology and Women's Studies. I continued my education and then earned my MA in Counseling Psychology. I am currently interested in learning more about holistic health, spirituality, and philosophy.

Where are you located?

House of Therapy is at telehealth-based private practice out of Michigan. Morgan is able to see anyone who is a legal resident of Michigan.

 

How does this work?

Video counseling offers all of the traditional benefits of face-to-face counseling as well as additional service perk, the comfort of your own environment. For ease, I use an online system, SimplePractice, for paperwork, scheduling, billing, and video software. 

What can I expect from individual therapy?

The approach is integrative and direct. The foundation is Humanistic, Mindfulness-based, and Cognitive-based. I will not only focus on emotions and process experiences with you, but I will also collaborate on solutions for immediate relief. Therapy is sometimes uncomfortable when trying to change old patterns of engaging with ourselves and the world, so I embrace the slogan, "Get comfortable with being uncomfortable." I'll be in your corner at every turn.

What can I expect from couples therapy?
The approach is still integrative and direct. The foundation is Gottman Method, but without the focus on gender dynamics. I place emphasis on navigating chaos, reducing stressful interactions, building friendship, and improving emotional support and interpersonal communication. I focus on the interactions, not who is "good" or "bad" or "right" or "wrong." My goal is to help you change behaviors and communication, so that this particular relationship feels more peaceful. 

What do you specialize in?

PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Coping Skills, Divorce, Abuse, Eating Disorders, Grief, Infertility, Life Transitions, Parenting, Peer Relationship, Pregnancy, Prenatal, Postpartum, Racial Identity, Transgender, Self-Esteem Self-Harming, Stress, and Family Conflict.

Do you write Gender Affirming Surgery or Emotional Support Animal Letters?

Yes to both.

Do you accept insurance? How much do sessions cost?

I do not accept insurance, but this can still be affordable. I collaborate with every individual and couple for a price per session. Please know that those who pay the full service fee make it possible for me to serve those who do not have the full service fee to give. That said, if you feel that financial cost is a barrier to obtaining services here, but you also feel strongly about me being the best fit for you, please let me know. 

Do you offer free consultations?

Yes! 15 minutes consultations are free. You can choose between a call or video.
