Online Individual, Couple, and Family Counseling For Highly Sensitive People

Therapy that helps Highly Sensitive People find healing from past wounds, manage present anxiety, and  develop close & meaningful relationships

Individual Therapy

You feel things deeper than others around you and frequently feel overwhelmed by your senses. You spend more time contemplating than doing. And one criticism is enough to bring back a flood of memories.

You could be a Highly Sensitive Person. At Covenant, we provide online counseling that can address the various ways high sensitivity can manifest:

  • Men’s Issues (especially toxic masculinity)
  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Trauma / Loss
  • “Behavioral” Issues
  • Lack of Direction in life
  • Spiritual Concerns

Couples / Family Therapy

Whether couples have one highly sensitive member or multiple HSPs, they are bound to experience any number of challenges. Arguments and yelling are inevitable, but many times subside as children and spouses shut down. The family becomes more about survival than thriving.

Covenant approaches these non-judgmentally and works to build on the strengths of the family to address various concerns:

  • Premarital Counseling
  • Communication
  • Anger / Yelling
  • Stressful Changes / Phase-of-Life
  • Discipline
  • Sexuality

Group Therapy

Covenant believes in the treatment of the whole person: mind, body, and spirit – and has strong roots in Christian thought (though is not necessary for treatment).  Covenant does provide Pastoral Counseling for pastors and their congregations. Covenant can help with individuals, families, seminars and teachings.

In addition, Covenant likes to focus on the treatment of pastors – particularly those who fall into the highly sensitive category.  With a higher-than-average depression occurrence and professional isolation, pastors have some unique needs for mental health. Covenant can help with these – offering therapy that utilizes grace, positive regard, and confidentiality

Greetings! Matthew here!

Matthew E. Morgan, MA, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC)

Growing up in a disconnected family, I found that my relationship with God provided much of the stability the I needed in times of turmoil. I became a therapist because I found that my problems enabled me to have a greater sense of empathy for others – giving a sense of meaning to suffering. Later I discovered that this was complicated by being a Highly Sensitive Person (to borrow from Dr. Elaine Aron) – which can be an incredible gift at times – and I use it to drive my therapy practice.

In this picture, my shirt says, “It’s never over if you keep hitting continue.” It was something my brother said and it struck me as being profound in two dimensions. 1) You will keep getting the same results if you continue doing what you’re doing. 2) It’s never too late to change. Maybe you have messed up and feel like a failure. Put another quarter in the game, select “continue” and let’s see what we can fix.

My Approach & Values

I have gone through my life fighting with anxiety, second-guessing every move. I have fought insomnia more nights than I can count. I struggle looking in the mirror because I have not liked what I see there.

I lay that out, because that’s what I bring to the table. I understand. I believe first and foremost in being present. At Covenant you are family. I love a particular line in the movie, The Greatest Showman: 

You just don’t get it.  Our own mothers were ashamed of us.  Hid us all our lives. Then you pulled us out of the shadows.  Maybe you were a fraud and it was all about making a buck.  But…the circus was our home, gave us a family. – Lettie (Keala Settle), The Greatest Showman

Yes, this is a professional environment, but it’s more than that. You are accepted. Your story is honored. And I believe that you are the expert on you. I will help you with relaxation techniques, reframing your thoughts, and understanding you better – but at the end of the day, change is about you.
