Healing through Connecting with Others
Covenant Family Wellness of Columbus, Ohio provides more than just online counseling. The online venue is a great way to begin the healing process, but we can measure how we are progressing
Seminars & Education
Matthew E. Morgan is a licensed minister as well as being a professional counselor. He will also jokingly refer to the dark ages when he attempted stand-up comedy. If you or your group are looking for a dynamic comedian, Matthew can refer you to a few.
But if you are looking to help your organization gain some insight into mental health services in a way that is informative and entertaining, Matthew would be more than willing to come and help.
My sophomore year of high school, I stood up in speech class. I shook. I flop-sweated. I stuttered and “um’d” my way through several miserable moments. And I swore I would never do anything that required me to speak in front of people.
My senior year, I won the state finals in my division for DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) because of a presentation I made in front of a group. I became a pastor later. And then a teacher.
I love to share my heart in front of groups and to educate people about mental health, faith, and anything that helps families to draw closer at the end of the day.”
Matthew currently hosts the Bread over Stones podcast and speaks at his church.

Matthew has probably no greater passion than marrying the treatment of mental health issues with the church. This includes:
- Training pastors how to recognize mental health issues and when to refer out
- How to create a welcoming environment in the church for people struggling with mental wellness
- Understanding the spiritual roots and spiritual effects of mental illness.
Family connections are affected by so many different issues from childhood, adolescence, and even adulthood. But there are some common themes, popularized by Dr. John Gottman, that show us we have problems:
Matthew can help bring these areas to light and teach many people how to communicate with love and acceptance in the family.

As a highly-sensitive person himself, Matthew loves to educate people about the trait and offer help learning how to interact with others. This includes:
- Anxiety management through mindfulness

- Creating family support for HSP
Trauma's Effect on the Family
So much research is going into “Adverse Childhood Experiences” (ACEs) and realizing that trauma has a profound effect on children as they grow into adults.
Matthew speaks to trauma and to those who own that story and works to provide support, care, and understanding.
Anxiety manifests in so many different ways: panic, nervousness, and fear. It affects not only our minds and bodies but our relationships as well.
Matthew works to teach groups about anxiety and to find personalized ways of handling it.
