Kristen Amanda Morris, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Baton Rouge
On the outside, you can handle just about anything. But inside, the anxiety, sadness, self-criticism and "what ifs" are becoming unbearable. No matter what you do, it never really seems like enough. You may no know exactly where to start, but you know something has to change soon. You just need someone to help you find your way back to you. Counseling can help you to get un-stuck and often results in profound, lasting changes in your life and relationships.
I specialize in helping women overcome perfectionism, anxiety, low self esteem, depression, and poor body image. I also help young adults struggling with identity and life transitions (jobs, marriage, parenthood, divorce/breakups, illness).
I will work with you as a whole person, not a diagnosis. My approach depends on your needs and goals, but you can expect acceptance, encouragement, insight and humor. I now offer secure video counseling in addition to in-office sessions. Call today or visit my website to get started!
