About Covenant Family Wellness

The history and purpose of CFW

Why Covenant?

A Covenant is a promise between two individual or group. It’s a strong bond – found in marriages, families, and close friendships. We are at our best as people when we are within these units – when they are healthy. “When I started working in mental health, I noticed that some people go through difficult circumstances and show amazing resilience. Others struggle to maintain a healthy self-image and to feel good enough to get through a day. I noticed that a major deciding factor between those was the existence of healthy bonds with others,” Matthew Morgan, founder of Covenant, said. Covenant’s main purpose is to help families of faith connect, heal, and grow.  

Why An Online Practice?

When Matthew Morgan founded Covenant Family Wellness, he was working in an agency that provided in-home services to clients. “I loved aspects of being in people’s homes. They could be more comfortable. I could also look around and learn more about them in just a few minutes than I could all session in an office.” But the system was not without its limitations. “I spent a great deal of time driving to and from appointments. I also found that being allergic to other people’s dogs wasn’t the healthiest for me – not that it stopped me from petting them.” But being online is a great buffer to the allergens. It allows a therapist and client to connect with one another where they are both comfortable. Another benefit of online counseling is that busy families can have the time they need to get the help of counseling and still have time to spend with their families. Online therapy is available when it’s convenient for you – and there’s no travel required.
