Morgan Somer is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Manhattan's Flatiron District. She specializes in helping adolescents, adults, and athletes with eating disorders, exercise addiction, and body image / self esteem issues. Morgan also has extensive experience in treating those struggling with stress and anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and life and career transitions.
Morgan offers a safe space for clients to learn how to better understand themselves and the challenges they face. She also helps her clients identify their goals and develop the tools needed to sustain healthier behaviors. Her approach draws from both insight-oriented and goal-oriented therapies, including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
Morgan believes the best care requires a team approach, where she closely collaborates with dietitians, psychiatrists, medical providers, and/or higher levels of care. Furthermore, Morgan continuously attends advanced trainings / conferences, leads workshops in the community, and stays in constant touch with the top tri-state treatment centers / practitioners to ensure her methodologies and network remain as strong as possible.
Above all, Morgan believes that the most important factor in treatment is that clients find a therapist that they feel is the right fit. She welcomes the opportunity to get to know you further and see if she can be of help.
